Wimbledon prize money up more than 11%, winners of singles to get $3M each

London, June 14 (U.S.): Wimbledon’s prize pool is up more than 11% this year, with the winners of the singles taking home £2.35 million ($3 million).

The All England Club announced on Wednesday that the total prize money for the tournament will be 44.7 million pounds ($56.5 million). This is an increase of 17.1% compared to 2019, the last Wimbledon Championships before the pandemic.

The earnings of the winners of singles competitions have returned to the levels they were in 2019, according to the Associated Press.

The prize for singles champions decreased to 1.7 million pounds in 2021, after the tournament was canceled in 2020, and it was two million pounds last year.

Officials said priority would be given to supporting players in the early rounds. Those who lose in the first round will receive 55,000 pounds ($69,500), up 10% from last year.
