- Tournament makes exception to strict all-white dress code
- ‘It is our hope this will help players focus purely on performance’
Wimbledon is to drop the tournament’s strict all-white dress code and allow female players to wear dark undershorts in order to address the concerns of female players who are menstruating.
The move comes after protests at this year’s tournament from the Address The Dress Code campaign, which sought to highlight the anxiety women can face when competing in traditional whites, and criticism from Judy Murray and Billie Jean King.
