This edition of Wimbledon was historically important as being the first in which all defending champions were required to play in the main draw. Previously, the Gentlemen's Singles, Ladies' Singles, and Gentlemen's Doubles used a system known as the Challenge Round, in which the reigning champions were granted an automatic bye into the final while all other competitors played in a tournament to determine the final opponent.

It was also the first Championships played at the present site in Church Road.
