How Do I Buy Tickets for Wimbledon 2016?

Visitors are often asking us how they can buy tickets for Wimbledon. Every year tickets for the world famous tennis tournament are highly sought after.

There are a number of ways to purchase tickets to get into the Wimbledon Tennis courts, starting in August 11 months before the tournament, right up until on the day tickets.

We have detailed the options available to you below so that you can decide the best way for you to see this year's Wimbledon Tennis Tournament, whether it is just one or two days you wish to attend or if you want to try to catch the whole weeks play.

Public Ballot
Daily Debenture seats
Buy a 5 year Debenture holding
Queue early on the day
Re-sale tickets later in the day

  The Public Ballot
Public ballot applications for Wimbledon 2016, you can apply for Wimbledon Tickets for 2017 after the 1st August 2016.

Everyone can enter the Wimbledon public ballot. Due to demand your chances of obtaining tickets are quite low. From our experience you have about a 1 in 4 chance, so you may get lucky once every 4-5 years.

How to enter the ballot :-

You first need to write a letter to the AELTC requesting an official application form after the 1st August. Your letter must include a self-addressed and stamped envelope (DL size: 110mm x 220mm or 4 1/4 " x 8 5/8") so they can send you the application form. This is the address to write to:

Ticket Office
P.O. Box 98
London SW19 5AE

Once you have received your application for you then need to ensure the AELTC receive the completed form no later than 31st December (postmark no later than 15th December). Successful applicants are notified from February onwards.

The Wimbledon Public Ballot draw is held in January, and successful applicants are informed from February, but if you have not heard anything by March of the year of the tournament then you should assume your application has not been successful. As declined and returned tickets are re-balloted up to the day of play, it is possible that you may be offered tickets at a later stage.

  Buy Daily Debenture seats
Debentures seats are privately owned seats that are purchased by tennis fans or investors. They take ownership of a seat in Centre Court or No1 Court for 5 years.

Debenture holders can use the seat (or seats) themselves, offer them to friends or clients or offer them for sale day by day to the general public.

How much will a debenture seat for 1 day cost?

Debenture seats are purchased for £27,500 (2012 price) for the entire 5 year period but the price for a particular day will vary greatly depending which day you wish to attend, the court you are on and how far ahead you buy them. Prices can start from as little as £200 per seat and anywhere up to £3,000+ per seat for the final days. You can check the current daily prices here

There are added bonuses with purchasing Debenture seats, firstly they provide one of the best views in both Centre Court and No1 Court. Debenture holders get private access to the Debenture lounges which is passed on to you for the day.

The Debenture lounges are a more luxurious bar and dining area where you can relax and be served some of the finest food and drinks in a far more leisurely atmosphere. There is also free parking for Debenture holders which you can make use of if you are driving to Wimbledon.

If you decide to buy Debenture seats we recommend booking as early as possible. Like airline prices they can go up and down, but if you leave it until a few days before usually demand is very high and the prices can sky rocket!

  Buy Ownership of a five year Debenture holding
Wimbledon Debentures can be purchased for a 5 year period, unfortunately these have all been purchased and there is a long waiting list to be offered a Debenture holding if someone gives their up.

Debenture seats are offered only on Centre Court and No1 Court, where the top player matches are held.

  Queue on the day (very early)
The reality is that if you join the queue early in the morning you will still be queuing for hours upon hours to get in so your best option is to queue overnight. For example, 2009 was a particularly busy year and we know people who joined the queue during the first week at 8am and they didn't get in until 5pm. However, queuing overnight means you will almost certainly enter the grounds when the gates open at 9.30-10.00am

The one and only queue starts inside the entrance to Wimbledon Park (off Wimbledon Park Road) and then zigzags up and down the park.

There are very limited numbers of tickets available for Centre Court, No.1, and No.2 so you need to queue early to secure one of these. Ground Passes are of course available to those unable to obtain a show court ticket, but once the allocation for the day has been sold access to the grounds is strictly on a one-in one-out basis.

  Re-sale Tickets (later in the day)
Once you are already inside the grounds of Wimbledon, whether on a Ground Pass or any showcourt ticket, you will have the opportunity to purchase re-sold showcourt tickets. These are tickets which the original owner no longer requires (perhaps he/she has gone home early or just has a spare ticket) and wishes to give someone else the opportunity of sitting on a showcourt.

Re-sold tickets are always in demand and you will have to queue up for them. The ticket re-selling booth located at the top of Wimbledon Hill at the north end of the grounds, and opens at 3pm. Be prepared for very long queues.
