Default Who's Going?

Quick question..I'm planning a trip to Europe this June, it just happens to be during the two weeks of Wimbledon so I was going to try and make it to London for a day or two and attend a few matches.

I was looking online for tickets, and it said you have to fill out a Ballot before December to even try and get a ticket.

Is there any other way? I also read theres 500/day available I think at a ticket office on the grounds but those must sell out fast in the morning? anyone have experience with going to WImbledon?

Yes, if you queue early enough in the morning then you can get tickets to the show courts - otherwise just a ground pass with access to outside courts is still absolutely worth it!

500 a day are for each show court. There's about 6000 tickets in total per day, most are ground passes.
For a ground pass you should be ok queuing up around 6am.
And overnight for a show court ticket.

Default Wimbledon Ballot Drawing Notification

I submitted my paperwork for tickets this year for the first time through the public ballot system. Did anyone receive their ticket notifications yet? I'm not sure if I didn't luck out or if I just haven't received it yet here in the US.

Thanks.

I queued a couple of times at 8am and got inside with a ground pass no problem. This was on a weekday though - I'm sure on weekends 6am might be a better choice

Is there any way to buy ground passes online? I would love to see some early round action...

You can't buy ground tickets online, you can only buy them on the day of play. "The Queue" is a tradition at Wimbledon and has been for decades... I've got there at 8am or so before and still managed to get into the grounds before start of play.

This year, I will be going probably on every single day from days 2-11 (i.e. not the first day or the finals days) and queueing up for ground tickets, then hoping for some good resale tickets (£5 show court tickets sold inside the ground after 3pm)

Default Re: Who's Going?

Has anyone had prior experience queuing the first Saturday of the Championships? I'm fine with just getting a grounds pass, but are there more people in the queue because its a weekend or not as many as you'd think since the majority of matches on outer courts are doubles?
