When is the Wimbledon 2023 women’s final? Date, start time, TV coverage, live stream and how to watch

The women’s singles final takes place on Saturday 15 July, and should start at 2pm, barring any unexpected changes to the schedule, due to weather for example

The 2023 Wimbledon Championships are into the second week, and after an opening week that was hampered by rain, similar delays could be on the cards for the backend of the tournament.

As always the schedule is packed with two weeks of solid tennis. Not only are there the men’s and women’s singles tournaments, but multiple doubles, wheelchair and youth events.

Everything is building up to the final weekend of the championships, when a brand new set of winners are crowned. Here’s when the finals are taking place, and how you can watch them live.

When is the Wimbledon women’s final?

The women’s singles final takes place on Saturday 15 July, and should start at 2pm, barring any unexpected changes to the schedule, due to weather for example.

On the same day crowds can enjoy the men’s doubles final, women’s wheelchair singles final, men’s wheelchair doubles final, quad wheelchair doubles final, girls’ singles final, girls’ doubles final, and boys’ doubles final.

The men’s singles final will be played on the final day of the championships – Sunday 16 July, also at 2pm,

As well as the men’s final, the final Sunday of Wimbledon 2023 will also feature the women’s doubles final, men’s and quad wheelchair singles finals, women’s wheelchair doubles final, boys’ singles final, and boys’ and girls’ under-14 singles finals.

How can I watch the Wimbledon final live?

As always, the BBC is showing every match played at Wimbledon over the course of the fortnight.

Coverage of the final will be on BBC One, as well as online via BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website and app.

What happens if it rains at Wimbledon?

If it starts to rain on an outdoor court at Wimbledon, the umpires will pause play after the current point has finished. Ground staff will then cover the court, and play will resume when the umpires decide conditions are suitable.

On Centre Court and Court No 1, which both have retractable roofs, play will be paused while the roofs are closed, which takes roughly 10 minutes. There may need to be a slightly longer delay for the court to dry out before play can resume – as was the case in Novak Djokovic‘s round one match this year, which was suspended for almost 90 minutes.

For the outdoor courts, if rain continues throughout the day, then matches will resume the next day. On occasion, matches have been forced to be completed several days after they started. Organisers will attempt to keep matches on the same court, though this will not always be possible.

Where there are serious delays, the men’s and women’s singles take priority. Once these are completed, the other matches are packed in tightly.

As far as supporters go, if there is less than one hour’s play on a court for which tickets have been purchased, they are entitled to a full refund.

People with grounds passes purchased before 5pm are eligible for a full refund if the average amount of play on the courts accessible is less than one hour. If the average across those courts is less than two hours, fans are entitled for a refund of half the ticket price.
