Nope. (Unless, in the very extreme scenario that there is so much rain the days before that qualies are a total wash-out.) You can try to catch some training matches at Aorangi Park, but that place is not very accessible. I once got into the main venue the weekend before but that was really by chance (and stealth).

Default Re: Who's Going?

Hypothetical question...hoping to get to Wimbledon sometime in the next couple of years--probably 2015 or 2016.

I put together a couple of possible itineraries/budgets. These are all within a few hundred dollars of one another.

1) Fly in from Chicago on the Tuesday of Qualies, catch the full Wednesday at Roehampton. Get Thursday and Friday to explore London (I studied in the UK a few years ago so I've seen some but there's always more to see), on Saturday take a cheap weekend train to Eastbourne for that final...then Monday/Tuesday, queue for Wimbledon...grounds pass one day, maybe show court the other (overnight). Fly back to Chicago Thursday.

2) fly in from Chicago on Saturday. Queue Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, hopefully getting show court one of those days, and trying to get resale show courts on one of the grounds pass days too. Fly back to Chicago Thursday. This is the cheapest option, but gives me zero free time in London aside from Sunday before getting in the queue.

3) fly in from Chicago on Saturday and going four days of the first week...with one free day in London on the day I don't go to Wimby. This is the most expensive option since show court tickets get pricier by Friday. Fly back to Chicago Saturday.

Right now I think it's probably between option 1 and option 3...though I'll also apply on the ballot as well to see if I can get any tickets that way.

Option 1 is most advisable, I think. Not just because I love Roehampton, but also because I think it's physically well-nigh impossible to queue for three or four days without being forced to leave early.

Oo, good point. I'm under the impression that so long as you show up at 6-7 you'll get a grounds pass no problem and get in quickly?

And I've heard mixed things about getting into court 1...Would 1-3am do it for Court 1?

Yes, 6-7 is early enough, but don't forget that it might take you quite some time to get to the queue (depending on where you are staying in London, obviously). You would probably get in around 10.30 or so, so the queue is still long. I find it extremely exhausting, especially if you include overnight queuing for one or more days of show court tickets. I am not sure what the right time is for Court 1, but I am sure it varies per OOP (Brits, Federer are popular; women's matches less so) and weather.

Ground passes are available throughout the tournament. Earlier in the tournament the matches will mainly be singles on the outside courts but as the tournament progresses you will get doubles, juniors, seniors, etc. on these courts.

You can view the schedule of play for each day from last year here:
