Get Wimbledon tickets

submit to reddit

Tickets for Wimbledon are a hot item when the summer rolls around again and the tennis action gets underway in June of each year. But if you want to get in to see all the big players, how do you do it?

Every year the All England Lawn Tennis Club holds a public ballot to determine who will be lucky enough to get tickets to the Championships. There is no guarantee you will get tickets, but if you do you will find they could well be for one of the show courts, i.e. Centre Court or Court No. 1. The ballot takes place each year from around August until December. The draw for the ballot then takes place from January onwards, right up to the Championships themselves.

If you do not get lucky you can still turn up on the day, but you will need to attend as early as possible. There are usually around 6000 tickets available, which if you get one will permit you to access the grounds and all the outside courts. In addition to this you may be lucky enough to pick up a ticket for Centre Court, Court No. 1 or Court No. 2. Some five hundred tickets are available for each of these on a daily basis, so you still have a chance of getting onto a show court if you were not lucky during the public ballot.

As you can see, if you know what to do you can be in with a good chance of seeing Wimbledon from court side this year.
