Wimbledon tickets - is it possible? « on: March 13, 2006, 09:01 AM »

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?

Well you I dunno about buying them in advance, but on the day of the match you can queue up for tickets.

Edit:  But the queue line is very long!!

Yes you can buy tickets on the day, as long as you are prepared to queue.  I thought there are about 500 tickets for the main show courts kept back for sale on the day, except for the final three or four days.   Good Luck!

yeah there is no way for you 2 buy them in advanced now because you had to enter the ballot and its 2 late to enter now, like the others said you can que up on the day and it is adviced to camp out the night before if you want tickets for the show courts... but u can get ground tickets to go and sit on murrays field/ Henmans hill ( wat ever you call it) and you can have a look at the smaller courts this is only 15 pounds a day but again it is adviced 2 camp over night

i hope this helps, if u need any more info just ask me

If you go to the wimbledon website it tells you all about the protocol for buying tickets. There is a nallot for tickets beforehand but the deadline for application for that was in like November or something. As far as on the day is concerned the other posts are right and you can queue on the day but in order to have half a chance you really need to be queueing through the night. There's a list of rules for queueing on the website too. It includes don't's such as 'use a gas stove'. They're actually quite funny. Very British!

Thanks for that guys, I did know about the ballot so was just wondering on availability of tickets on the day. Don't know if I'd be up for camping over night with no guarantee of a ticket though, I'll have to think about it. The trip isn't even booked yet though, just being strongly discussed.
Bit different to the aus open then, I literally got off the tram and had a ticket within 5 minutes lol.

If you was in the area at the time I'd swing by and see what the queue is like and the availability of the tickets.  I'm thinking of going to London for a day trip on the second day of Wimbledon and seeing if theres a chance we can get tickets for the day.  And if not, we could go to Henman Hill for a bit to soak up the atmosphere.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

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.

If at first you don't succeed, you fail.

From what I gather from the TV, the hill is as much fun as the stadium. Is it really so?

More info on tickets and queueing: http://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/about/tickets/queue.html

Never been to the hill myself but it certainly looks like excellent fun. I mean, look at the number of people that choose to sit there rather than stay at hoome or go watch games going on on the non show courts. I'd definately head there if I couldn't get court tickets!
