Planning permission has been given for the tennis museum at the Wimbledon tennis club to be revamped.

Officially, the All England Lawn Tennis Club’s museum, they are planing a rooftop extension and external façade alterations to the existing Museum Building.

The amendments to the external façade of the Museum Building is intended to result in a design that is more in keeping with the appearance of the adjoining Centre Court and No.1 Court.

The extension consists of a glazed, set-back rooftop extension which is clad with a series of ‘fins’ in a draped curve arrangement, similar to that of a tennis net. In keeping with the rooftop extension, the top and bottom of the existing level two are also proposed to be clad in ‘fins’ matching those above.

The museum is open to the public when the Wimbledon championships are not taking place, and construction is expected to start this August.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
