Overview

The annual extravaganza at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club is not just a sporting occurrence. Started in 1879, Wimbledon or The Championship as it is called is the oldest and unarguably the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world. The only tennis major still played on grass, Wimbledon, is associated with a long list of traditions including the “white dress code” for players and a notable absence of sponsor advertising on the courts. Whether you are a casual follower of the game or a diehard fan, if there’s one tennis tournament that you have to see in your life then make sure you get to London’s SW19 in June-end / July-beginning.

General accommodation details

Recommended Localities: 

  • The venue is located in the West part of the city 4.8 Km from the city center. 
  • SW19 is a 30-45 minute ride from central London. As such, a bed-and-breakfast in the quaint town of Wimbledon itself is often the preferred option. Nearest tube station is Southfields, the stadium is a brisk 15-minute walk (and actually a 30-minute walk from the Wimbledon tube station).
  • Accommodation may become difficult to find closer to the tournament in which case the option may be to compromise on proximity of accommodation and adjust to a longer commute

 You can find a wide range of accommodation options in the following areas: 

  • Knightsbridge (approx. 9.5 Km from venue)
  • Wimbledon (approx. 2.3 Km from venue)
  • Notting Hill (approx. 11.6 Km from venue)
  • Paddington (approx. 12.1 Km from venue)
  • Victoria London (approx. 10.2 Km from venue)
  • Tooting (approx. 5.0 Km from venue)

How to get Tickets

Ballot

The Public Ballot provides both UK and international residents an opportunity to apply for tickets to the championships. It is not possible to request tickets for specific days or courts, as the day and court offered are chosen randomly by a computerized selection process.

Dates for The AELTC Public Ballot for 2017 are as follows:

  • UK Residents: October 13, 2016 to December 15, 2016 (last date for requesting a form).
  • International Residents: Online forms will be available from November 1, 2016 to December 15, 2016. All tickets applied for online must be collected on the day of play; no tickets will be posted. For more information you should refer to the official website page for international ballot applicants.

*** The 2017 Ballot is now closed.

Queue

  • You can purchase tickets at the venue through The Queue. There is ONE QUEUE for the on-day sale of tickets at the Gate 3 turnstiles.
  • A limited number of tickets are available at the venue for the day’s matches while the tournament is on. This facility is available only from Round-1 through Quarter Finals. There are no tickets for sale at the turnstiles for the Semi Finals and the Finals.
  • On your arrival at the end of The Queue you will be issued with a Queue Card. This card is dated and numbered to show your position in The Queue. It must be retained and will be checked on entry to the Grounds. These are non-transferable.
  • Your position in The Queue cannot be reserved by the placing of equipment — you must be present in person and hold a valid, numbered and dated Queue Card. Queue Cards are issued one per individual and are strictly non transferable.
  • At approximately 7:30 am Stewards will issue wristbands to those towards the front of The Queue who are queuing for tickets for the Show Courts. The number of wristbands issued exactly matches the quantity of tickets available for each court on that day.
  • Wristbands, marked by court and with a detachable 'court' tally, will be offered to queuers according to the number of Show Court tickets available. On reaching the entrance kiosk, the tally must be detached and handed to the cashier who will issue one ticket for the court on the tally.
  • The turnstiles accept cash only
  • Left Luggage facilities are available. It is requested not to deposit bags bigger than 60cm x 45cm x 25cm.
