The tournament was run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and included in the 2018 ATP World Tour and the 2018 WTA Tour calendars under the Grand Slam category. The tournament consisted of men's (singles and doubles), women's (singles and doubles), mixed doubles, boys' (under 18 – singles and doubles) and girls' (under 18 – singles and doubles), which was also a part of the Grade A category of tournaments for under 18, and singles and doubles events for men's and women's wheelchair tennis players as part of the UNIQLO Tour under the Grand Slam category.

The tournament was played only on grass courts; the main draw matches were played at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Wimbledon. Qualifying matches were played, from Monday 25 June to Thursday 28 June 2018, at the Bank of England Sports Ground, Roehampton.[1] The Tennis sub-committee met to decide wild card entries on 19 June.[1]

Prize moneyEdit

The Wimbledon total prize money for 2018 had increased to £34,000,000, up by 7.6% on 2017. The winners of the men's and women's singles titles will earn £2.25m.[2] Prize money for the men's and women's doubles and wheelchair players were also increased for the 2018 competition.[3]

A new rule in 2018 was that any first round singles player who is unfit to play and withdraws on-site after 12pm on Thursday before the start of the Main Draw will now receive half of the First Round prize money, the other half to be awarded to the replacement Lucky Loser. Any player who competes in the First Round Main Draw singles and retires or performs below professional standards, may now be subject to a fine of up to First Round prize money, to deter players from appearing only to claim prize money.[1][4]
