All England Lawn Tennis And Croquet Club
The ALL ENGLAND LAWN TENNIS AND CROQUET CLUB, also known as the ALL ENGLAND CLUB, based at Church Road, Wimbledon , London, England, is a private members\' club . It is best known as the venue for the Wimbledon Championships , the only Grand Slam tennis event still held on grass . Initially an amateur event that occupied club members and their friends for a few days each summer, the championships have become far more prominent than the club itself. However, it still operates as a members' tennis club, with all courts in use all year round. The club has 375 full members, about 100 temporary playing members, and a number of honorary members, including past Wimbledon singles champions and people who have rendered distinguished service to the game. To become a full or temporary member, an applicant must obtain letters of support from four existing full members, two of whom must have known the applicant for at least three years. The name is then added to the Candidates' List

Translucent
In the field of optics , TRANSPARENCY (also called PELLUCIDITY or DIAPHANEITY) is the physical property of allowing light to pass through the material without being scattered. On a macroscopic scale (one where the dimensions investigated are much, much larger than the wavelength of the photons in question), the photons can be said to follow Snell\'s Law . TRANSLUCENCY (also called TRANSLUCENCE or TRANSLUCIDITY) is a super-set of transparency: it allows light to pass through, but does not necessarily (again, on the macroscopic scale) follow Snell's law; the photons can be scattered at either of the two interfaces where there is a change in index of refraction , or internally. In other words, a translucent medium allows the transport of light while a transparent medium not only allows the transport of light but allows for image formation. The opposite property of translucency is opacity
