Original No.3 Court and renamingEdit
The original No.3 Court was renamed in 2009 to Court 4. Subsequently this court and the surrounding area was demolished to make way for both the replacement Court 4 and space for stands of the new No.3 Court.
New No.3 CourtEdit
Following the building of the new No.2 Court, the old No.2 Court was rebuilt, becoming the new No.3 Court. Work began at the end of the 2009 Championships and was finished in time for the 2011 Championships. The new No.3 Court has a capacity of 2,000. It is the fourth largest court at Wimbledon after Centre Court, No.1 Court, and No.2 Court.
