The 1937 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 21 June until 2 July. It was the 57th staging of the Wimbledon Championships, and the third Grand Slam tennis event of 1937. Don Budge and Dorothy Round Little won the singles title.
This edition marked the first time that the Wimbledon Championships were televised by the BBC. Only matches taking place on Centre Court were transmitted by the BBC for half an hour each day. Two cameras were used, one for a close up view of the match and one for a general view, and the match between Bunny Austin and George Lyttleton Rogers was the first one to be broadcast.
