Wimbledon Tickets

I know Wimby has a weird ass way of doing the tickets and that the ballot is closed and all that jazz but can u actually buy a ground pass or something on the day?

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

Re: Wimbledon Tickets

You can get show court tickets on the day if you queue the night before

Re: Wimbledon Tickets

Regarding the ballot are they still allocating tickets? Ive never been allocated any even though I send off a few applications from different addresses each year. I heard some people have already been allocated some.

Re: Wimbledon Tickets

Thanks for all the info peeps, and also welcome

Can u queue up for ground passes only on the day or are the only tickets they dish out for show courts?

How have I not got any tickets for about the 6th year running. Guess I will have to camp again, always a good laugh though.

Re: Wimbledon Tickets

allstar, if you join the lta (i think its about £35 a year) you have a 2/5 chance of getting tickets...much better odds than the normal ballot!

Dont play enough really. Anyway I actually enjoying camping out. You get to wind up the Aussies, even more so this year since we beat them in the Ashes.
