The Wimbledon wheelchair singles and doubles draws will double in size this year, bringing them into line with the other Grand Slams.

The singles competitions will have a 16-player draw and the doubles events will feature eight teams.

There will be no change to the size of the quad draws, involving eight singles players and four doubles teams.

The Australian Open and the US Open host 16 singles players and eight doubles teams at their quad events.

The increase in the number of matches means the wheelchair competition will begin a day earlier on 9 July.

With 100 days until the start of Wimbledon, the All England Club said it had received an “unprecedented number of applications” on the centenary of the public ballot.

It said the strongest international demand has come from the United States, Spain and France.

Wimbledon will be staged from 1-14 July.
