Wimbledon Tickets Explained
When it comes to choosing the right ticket to suit your Wimbledon needs, it can be quite confusing. So to help you decide what’s best for you, we have put together a guide to the different types of tickets available and the fantastic hospitality packages offered at The Championships, Wimbledon 2019.
Each year, Wimbledon attracts a worldwide audience of hundreds of millions but only a tiny percentage are privileged enough to sample the magic and excitement of one of the most prestigious Grand Slam tennis championships first-hand. This is because tickets for the event are extremely popular and sell out quickly.
We have a set allocation of tickets specifically for hospitality packages, including top facilities inside and outside the Wimbledon grounds.
The Public Ballot
The majority of Centre, No.1 and No.2 Court tickets are sold in advance via a public ballot. To find out dates and to sign up for the public ballot, please visit wimbledon.com
How do you buy Wimbledon tickets?
There are a number of ways to buy Wimbledon tickets; these include purchasing long term debenture seats, the UK and overseas public ballots, queuing on the day or trying to purchase tickets the day before online.
Apart from the debenture tickets, the only way to guarantee a ticket for The Championships, Wimbledon on a specific day and court is to purchase through an authorised hospitality provider.
Keith Prowse has been the official provider of hospitality to The Championships, Wimbledon since 1982. Our Wimbledon programmes are available both in advance and throughout the tournament (depending on availability). We have packages to suit every budget and our 30 years of experience makes us confident you will have a truly magical day.
Where can I buy Wimbledon tickets?
There are four places where you can buy Wimbledon tickets.
We have a number of packages to suit all different budgets, and as well as a guaranteed ticket on a court and day of your choosing, they also include all sorts of essential and exciting extras.
You can also buy Wimbledon tickets through the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, via Wimbledon's UK and overseas Public Ballots, which is how most Centre Court, No.1 Court and No.2 Court tickets are sold. Introduced in 1924, the ballots have always been substantially oversubscribed and so entry does not guarantee a ticket.
Additionally, you can queue on the day to buy one of around 500 tickets reserved per day for Centre Court (except for the last 4 days), No.1 Court and No.2 Court, on sale at the turnstiles outside the Grounds. The Wimbledon site advises that you should begin to queue at least a few hours before the Grounds open at 9.30, with wristbands being allocated at 7.30.
Finally, if you are coming from slightly further away and would like to know in advance that you have a ticket, a small number are made available for sale the day before online.
How much for Centre Court tickets at Wimbledon?

If you would prefer to guarantee a ticket for a specific court and day now, Keith Prowse has Centre Court, and No.1 Court tickets included within it's packages.
