Wimbledon How to get tickets? « on: January 15, 2014, 03:24 PM »

Like so many others I would like to go to Wimbledon. Not being British, does anyone know how to buy tickets to watch a match on Centre Court (or I mean : with the best opportunity Andy's playing?)? Any advice is welcome...Thank you!

You've missed out this year for the ballot, but there's still two ways of getting CC tickets.

Queue overnight.

Or try via ticketmaster 9am the day before you go.

With that said, if you don't care about not seeing Andy, and are happy to see other players, queue early morning for a ground pass, either the first week or second monday has great matches on the outside courts.

Would suggest getting ther very early for a ground pass. I didn't realise when I was last there in 2009 and arrived about 10.30 and didn't get in until 5.

If you just want the experience and chose your day, you can get a ground pass for about £20 with minimal queuing. They then often have tickets for court 1 or centre court for an additional amount.

I went on women's semi final day in 2012  and got in without queuing. I saw Djokovic practicing.  Much as I would have liked to see Mr M I don't cope with crowds. I have applied for tickets in the ballot this year but if I am lucky would much prefer the earlier rounds when it is less manic.

Masaka hope u get lucky but would say my experience is that its more hectic the earlier in the tournament it is because all courts are in use and the gangways are blocked up with folk trying to catch a glimpse of anything moving on a court. By the end of the second week there's a bit more space as although there will be juniors, seniors and some dubs on outside courts most spectators are either on a show court or on the hill. Either way it is a fantastic experience and atmosphere. I can't go before first Friday due to school dates so hoping to get lucky with tickets on suitable date  Fingers crossed

Wimby sure is different to Flushing Meadows where you can get tickets for any match on any day on any court inc the finals.  Even, when it says they're sold out they aren't with 100's or even 1000's of tickets up for resale (because locals by night tickets on spec and then resell if they don't like the line up or can't get there)

Did you see the semis or did you just go for a wander and to see the sights?

@Wimbledonwestie

I think I was fortunate when I went. I just happened to be in London during Wimbledon 2012 and just rang on spec to see how long I would need to queue.  When I was told there wasn't a queue that day I just went. I had a really nice day.  I didn't have enough time for it to be worth paying for a centre court ticket, but they let you look at the show courts if you ask, so I did. The nice chap in charge decided my stick and I needed a sit down, and plonked me in a seat, so I watched a bit of a doubles match on centre court. It was a good day.

I saw the semis from the hill, I think your heroine was playing. I was more excited by seeing Navaratalova playing,  but I went mainly for the experience. I was sciving off child care duties for a couple of hours.

I got in in time to sit on the hill and watch Murray then managed to get a resale ticket for court 1 and saw the last set of a match so at least managed to see something on a court. Was worth it of course but if I did it again I'd try and get there early in the morning to have a chance of getting in for most of the day. I did also apply for the ballot but didn't get anything.

My wife and I were in London in 2009 during the 2nd week. We caught an early tube on the Saturday. Did not queue and was about to buy £15 ground tickets when the lady at the turnstiles said they still had Court 1 tickets available. So we bought two £26 each. This gave us access to everywhere but Centre. We went to court two which was brand new that year. Then when the show courts opened we made our way to No 1. It was ladies final day over on CC, but we saw the girls juniors final and presentation of cups etc. Then a senior’s match with Wilander, Bates etc. We even had a spell on Henman Hill to take in the atmosphere!

Getting them the day before is possible, but it's tough.
