The 2017 Wimbledon Championships are a Grand Slam tennis tournament which is due to take place at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London, United Kingdom. The main draw matches commence on 3 July 2017 and conclude on 16 July 2017.

The 2017 tournament is the 131st edition of the championships, the 50th in the Open Era and the third Grand Slam tournament of the year. It is to be played on grass courts and was part of the ATP World Tour, the WTA Tour, the ITF Junior tour and the NEC Tour. The tournament is organised by All England Lawn Tennis Club and International Tennis Federation.

Andy Murray is the defending champion in the Gentlemen's singles. Two-time defending Ladies' singles champion Serena Williams will not return to defend her title, having ended her season in April due to pregnancy.

This year The All England Lawn Tennis Club will have hosted The Wimbledon Championships since it started on 1877.

The first event was won by Spencer Gore, the only times when there was no Wimbledon Championships was during First and Second World Wars.

The tournament takes place over two weeks in late June and early July, culminating with the Ladies' and Gentlemen's Singles Final, scheduled respectively for the second Saturday and Sunday. Each year, five major events are contested, as well as four junior events and four invitational events.

Matches in the Gentlemen's Singles and Gentlemen's Doubles competitions are best-of-five sets. Matches in all other events are best-of-three sets. A tiebreak game is played if the score reaches 6–6 in any set except the fifth (in a five-set match) or the third (in a three-set match), in which case a two-game lead must be reached.

A total of 128 players feature in each singles event, 64 pairs in each single-sex doubles event, and 48 pairs in Mixed Doubles. Players and doubles pairs are admitted to the main events on the basis of their international rankings, with consideration also given to their previous performances at grasscourt events. Currently (since 2001) 32 male and female players are given seedings in the Gentlemen's and Ladies' singles while 16 teams are seeded in the doubles events.
