The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) in Wimbledon, London, has announced that Sport England chair Richard Lewis is to become its new chief executive from 1 May.

Although he will remain as chair of Sport England, Lewis will step down from his other role of Rugby Football League (RFL) chair at the end of the month following the appointment.

Lewis was former director of tennis at the Lawn Tennis Association before joining the RFL in 2002. He is also trustee of the London Marathon and Wembley National Stadium trusts.

"The prospect of helping shape the future of the AELTC and the premier tennis tournament in the world is one to be relished," said Lewis.

"I leave the RFL after 10 fulfilling years during which the sport has grown and prospered. I am extremely grateful to all the colleagues with whom I have had the privilege to work."
