Experience two weeks of first-class tennis, strawberries and cream, and good-natured queuing, at the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships to commence from June 27.
The world of tennis descends on Wimbledon in South West London every summer for the longest-running tennis tournament in the world, and one of four annual Grand Slam tennis events held around the globe.
Games are still played on the original playing surface, grass, and there’s a strict white-only dress code for players.
The tournament attracts around 500,000 spectators and millions of television viewers worldwide.
Almost uniquely for a major sporting event, Wimbledon offers spectators the chance to buy premium tickets on the day – but be prepared to queue!
Grab one of a limited number of tickets available daily by joining the queue at the Gate 3 turnstiles. You are only entitled to purchase one ticket per person queuing and payment is cash only.
Several thousand ground admission tickets are also available each day. These give you the chance to watch games from unreserved seating and standing areas on Courts 3 to 19. Once ground capacity has been reached, people standing in the queue are admitted on a one-out, one-in basis.
