The 1904 Wimbledon Championships took place on the outdoor grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London, United Kingdom. The tournament ran from 20 June until 29 June. It was the 28th staging of the Wimbledon Championships, and the first Grand Slam tennis event of 1904. The entry for the men's singles rose to 62, beating the 1880 record of 60. All ten courts (rather than Centre Court only) were 'dressed' with a surround of canvas 3 feet (90 cm) high. The balls and equipment were provided by Slazenger.
