Heavy rain showers have delayed the start of the 2010 Wimbledon wild card play-offs tournament.
The three day event, which gives British players the opportunity to compete for a wild card into the qualifying event for The Championships, was due to kick off at 11am at Aorangi Park this morning.
However, the unsettled weather means play is unlikely to begin until later this afternoon and the forecast over the next two days is also bleak.
Referee Peter Finn said: “There will come a point when we consider going indoors but at this point we are hoping the players will play on the grass courts.”
There are two wild cards available in each event. These are decided by 16 male and female competitors contesting a knockout draw.
The two sets of finalists will progress to next week’s qualifying event, which takes place at the Bank of England Sports Ground, Roehampton.
Lisa Jane Whybourn is the top seed in the women’s event, while Daniel Evans heads up the men.
