Each year there is a public ballot for tickets. The closing date for this year's championships has already passed. Tickets will be made available as usual to clubs affiliated to the LTA to sell to their members. Usually these are oversubscribed and the clubs themselves hold a ballot. In addition, a limited number of tickets (usually about 500) are made available to the public on the day for the main show courts. Many people queue overnight to get these tickets and there are strict rules in place for those who queue.
Admittance to the ground for about 6,000 people is also allowed on the day, with the opportunity to watch play on the outside courts, usually involving some of the lesser known players. Cost of Wimbledon ground tickets is £18 before 5.00pm and £12 after 5.00pm. Tickets are payable by cash only. Once in the grounds, there is the facility to queue in the ground for returned tickets for sale at a nominal price for Centre Court and Courts 1 & 2.
Time of Play
Play is scheduled to start at 1.00pm on Centre Court and Court One, on all days except Finals day. Play is scheduled for midday on most days on the outside courts. In the event of bad weather causing a backlog, play may start earlier. There is no play on the middle sunday.
Beware buying "black market tickets". There are strict controls on the reselling of tickets and you may find you don't get in! Hospitality and ticket packages through recognised agents are often still available.
