Wimbledon is one of four annual Grand Slam tennis tournaments held around the world. It’s the world’s longest-running and most prestigious tennis tournament. Games are still played on the original playing surface, grass, and there’s a strict white-only dress code for players.

 
During the first week, the early rounds of the Singles and Doubles matches are played, with the top seeds playing on Centre Court and Courts 1 and 2. The Ladies’ and Men’s Singles Finals take place over the final weekend of the Championships.

 
During the tournament, 500 tickets are available on days one to nine for Centre Court and No.2 Court. Approximately 500 tickets are available on all 13 Days for No.1 Court. You should expect to queue overnight for a chance to buy one of these tickets.

 
Several thousand ground admission tickets are also available each day. These give you the chance to watch games from the No.2 Court standing enclosure and from unreserved seating and standing on the outside courts, and on the big screen at Henman Hill. Once ground capacity has been reached, queuers are admitted on a one-out, one-in basis.
