Wimbledon is set to relax its strict rules on white clothing and shall permit women players to wear dark undershorts and relieve a potential source of anxiety during periods, the All England Club said as per Reuters.
Organisers said it was decided after talks with the WTA, clothing manufacturers and medical teams on how best to support women and girls taking part.
“We are committed to supporting the players and listening to their feedback as to how they can perform at their best,” said All England Club Chief Executive Sally Bolton.
“I’m pleased to confirm that, following consultation with players and representatives of several stakeholder groups, the Committee of Management has taken the decision to update the white clothing rule at Wimbledon,” she added.

“This means that from next year, women and girls competing at The Championships will have the option of wearing colored undershorts if they choose. It is our hope that this rule adjustment will help players focus purely on their performance by relieving a potential source of anxiety,” she went on to say.
Organisers said requirements for other clothing, accessories and equipment were still the same.
