2018 Wimbledon Tickets
Looking to purchase Wimbledon tickets for the 2018 edition of the tournament? We have all the information on how you can do that below.
Given the number of people who visit Wimbledon every year, the tournament has a unique system through which one must buy tickets.
The Wimbledon Ballot
The ballot system is one of the most popular options, which works like a lottery system. Essentially, you need to register for the draw, wherein, a computerised system selects the people randomly, for random courts and random days.
This means that you cannot select the day or the court for which you want the tickets. However, once you are eligible for the ticket, it’s up to you to buy them. The ballot details for the Wimbledon tickets will be out in October, and you can sign up here to receive more details.
Queue Up to Get Wimbledon Tickets?
The second way to buy tickets is The Queue, which involves buying tickets on the day of play, at the ticket counters in Wimbledon.
However, a huge queue is usually formed, so make sure you get there early to get your place in the queue. The tickets are available for Centre Court, No. 1 Court, No. 2 Court and Grounds Admission.
The prices vary from £56 on day one for Centre Court to £200 for the final day. However, it is unlikely that you will find the tickets for last four days through the queue system since they are generally sold out in advance. You can find more information on the queue here.
The third way to buy tickets is through hospitality partners, namely Keith Prowse and Sportsworld.
Keith Prowse is for the visitors from UK, Europe and the Americas and Sportsworld is for fans from Asia and Australasia.
The packages include access to Show Courts or Centre Courts (depending on your selection of day of play), along with a stay in an elegant hotel with meals, pick up from the airport and other perks included. In addition to this, you also get access to lounges and receive exclusive Wimbledon gift vouchers.
The prices for these hospitality packages range from £300 for No. 1 Court on Day 1, to £6000 for Gentlemen and Ladies’ Finals.
Other way to obtain tickets is through Ticketmaster, at ticketmaster.co.uk. They release the tickets for Centre Court, and Show Courts usually a few days in advance. This is by far the most convenient ways to buy tickets.
If you are looking for more exclusive seats, then you can opt for Debentures. This is the way through which, the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club generates fund to meet its capital expenditures at Wimbledon.
Tickets for Centre Court and No. 1 Court are sold every five years, and are absolutely transferable. These tickets come with an exclusive access to lounges which can be accessed only by Debenture ticket holders.
Debentures Tickets can be bought at Wimbledondebentureholders.com, starting from £3120 for day one to £8250 for the finals day. Keep in mind that the prices mentioned are for two people.
