Looks like I might get to make a trip back to England for the first time since 1999 this year during uni holidays, and it will be during Wimbledon and the World Cup. This then raises the question, is it possible to get into Wimbledon? Obviously centre court is out, but at the recent australian open I just turned up one day without a ticket and bought a pass for the outside courts for the day, is there anything similar for Wimbledon? Would it be possible to get a ticket say for the minor courts for 1 day?
Yes, you can queue up for the outside courts on the day - it's about a tenner for a ground pass. Personally, I don't know what the fuss is about getting tickets for the showcourts - I always shun them, and get a ground pass. You're closer to the action and the tennis is just as good, if not better.
