With a summer heatwave quickly approaching which could reportedly see temperatures in the south-east of the country reach 30C, fans bearing lashings of strawberries and cream will flock to the All-England club as Wimbledon gets underway once again.
Where to watch
As ever, the BBC will be providing comprehensive daily coverage of Wimbledon across a variety of different platforms from Monday 29 June.
Viewers can catch the action from the year's third tennis grand slam on BBC One, BBC Two and on the red button as well as via the BBC Sport website. Five Live will also be providing live radio reports.
As the highlight of the short grass court season and the jewel of Britain's sporting summer, Wimbledon always attracts significant attention and this year will prove no different.
In the men's draw, the top-three ranked stars in Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray will once again be expected to lead the chase with 10th seed and two-time champion Rafael Nadal inevitably hoping to recover from his miserable recent spell to prove himself still capable of challenging for grand slams once again.
2014 winner Djokovic, who triumphed at the Australian Open in January, was surprisingly beaten by Stanislas Wawrinka in the final at Roland Garros earlier this month so will no doubt carry an extra fire into this tournament.
|Last five finals|
|2014||Djokovic bt Federer||6-7||6-4||7-6||5-7||6-4|
|2013||Murray bt Djokovic||6-4||7-5||6-4|
|2012||Federer bt Murray||4-6||7-5||6-3||6-4|
|2011||Djokovic bt Nadal||6-4||6-1||1-6||6-3|
|2010||Nadal bt Berdych||6-3||7-5||6-4|
|2014||Kvitova bt Bouchard||6-3||6-0|
|2013||Bartoli bt Lisicki||6-1||6-4|
|2012||S Williams bt Radwanska||6-1||5-7||6-2|
|2011||Kvitova bt Sharapova||6-3||6-4|
|2010||S Williams bt Zvonareva||6-3||6-2|
Much expectation will again fall on the shoulders of Murray as the home favourite, and he has looked in good form of late having produced his best ever series of performances on clay as well as beating Kevin Anderson to capture a record-tying fourth Aegon Championship title at Queen's.
Serena Williams was dominant at the French Open and looks a great bet for further success, although Petra Kvitova will be expected to provide a staunch defence of her title despite recently suffering from illness.
Third seed Simona Halep should provide a threat, but Maria Sharapova, who faces Britain's Johanna Konta in the first round, will likely need to end her dismal record against Serena in order to reign supreme at Wimbledon for the first time in 11 years. Heather Watson has not enjoyed the best build-up with a troublesome elbow problem sparking fears over her involvement.
Laura Robson, meanwhile, has been handed a wildcard entry following 17 months out with a wrist injury.
Still smarting from his shock defeat at Roland Garros, expect Novak Djokovic to avenge that result with another display of dominance resulting in him capturing a third Wimbledon men's title.
Serena Williams will stay on course for a calendar Grand Slam and become holder of all four major titles if she triumphed at SW19.
Number two seed and defending champion Petra Kvitova should not be ruled out, of course, but it would be unwise to bet against the rested American to win it all once again.
