Wimbledon achieves record profits for LTA

Profits from this year's Wimbledon championships increased by 7 percent to record levels, Britain's Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) said.

The LTA, which organises the two-week Grand Slam, published its annual report and financial review which showed profits at the grasscourt tournament rose to 37.8 million pounds, up from 35.2 million pounds the previous year. The surplus is invested back into British tennis.

The LTA also said it spent 12.3 million pounds on player development with 17.4 million pounds going on encouraging people to take up the sport.

The governing body highlighted the impact of an excellent year for Britain's Andy Murray, who claimed Olympic gold before taking the US Open title, in boosting grassroots participation.
