How can I get tickets?

The ballot for tickets for Wimbledon 2019 has now closed.

But even if you’ve missed out, that doesn’t mean that you can’t take in the action for yourself.

Wimbledon remains one of the only major sporting events in the UK that still sells tickets on the day of play.

All you have to do is get down to the All England Club and, in true British style, get in the queue.

A limited number of tickets are available daily for Centre Court, No.1 Court and No.2 Court – except for the last four days on Centre Court, when all are sold in advance.

Each day there are also several thousand ground passes available.

These allow the user unlimited access to the outside courts and cost just £25 throughout the opening week of the tournament.
