Wimbledon Championships


Wimbledon Championships ~ Monday 1 to Sunday 14 July 2024

🎾 The hallowed turf of the All England Lawn Tennis Club is the place to be for the 2024 Wimbledon Championships, a jewel in the crown of the sporting summer.  See below for the latest ticket information.

14 days of world-class tennis await at this famous tournament that has taken place since the 1880s.  The Wimbledon Championships is the oldest of the four Grand Slams, the others being the Australian Open, the French Open and the US Open. 

The 2024 championships take place from Monday 1 July to Sunday 14 July on the iconic grass courts in south-west London.  Champions will be crowned on the weekend of 13/14 July, making tennis history and following in the footsteps of finest players in the history of the game. 

Read on for our ‘Ones to Watch’ and how to get 🎟️ on the day tickets to see the action.  


In the women’s draw all eyes will be on Marketa Vondrousova who made history in 2023 as the first unseeded women to become the Wimbledon Ladies’ single champion.  Vondrousova beat Ons Jabeur in the final.  Jabeur is a two-time runner-up having also lost to Elena Rybakina in the 2022 final.  On that occasion Rybakina set a record as the youngest Ladies’ singles champion.

Voundrousova, Jabeur and Rybakina will face stiff competition from Poland’s Iga Swiatek – the world No.1 and four-time major winner.  Likewise Coco Gauff from the USA, who lost to Swiatek in the 2022 French Open final, cannot be ruled out.  The world No.4 reached the fourth round in 2019 as a 15-year-old qualifier.  

In the men’s draw defending champion Carlos Alcaraz will look to defend the title he won in against seven-time Wimbledon champion and world No.1 Novak Djokovic in a stunning five-set thriller of a 2023 final.  Likely to be seeded 1 and 2 in the draw, an eagerly anticipated rematch in the 2024 final is on the cards.

World No.4 Jannik Sinner is the third favourite with the bookies.  And what price a return of two-time winner Rafael Nadal to the Centre Court surroundings.  Nadal won in 2008 beating Roger Federer in the final in one of the greatest tennis matches ever played.  Can the Spanish legend recover from injury and roll back the years?

All these questions and more will be answered over the next fortnight.


🗝️ Gates open daily at 10am.

🎾 Matches start no earlier than 1pm on Centre Court/No.1 Court and from 11am on all other courts.

The Queue

🎟️ Tickets on the day via the Queue.  Wimbledon remains one of the very few major sporting events where you can buy premium tickets on the day of play.  For many, *‘the Queue’ (link to official guide below) at The Championships is as much a part of the Wimbledon experience as the tennis itself.

It operates daily with an opportunity to purchase either one of the limited Show Court tickets available.  These are for Centre Court and No.2 Court the first ten days only, and for No.1 Court each day of the event.  There is limited availability.  Alternatively you can purchase a Grounds ticket.  This gives access to unreserved seating and standing areas for Courts 3-18, as well as entry to the Wimbledon Museum which is well worth a visit.  Tickets are sold on a best available, one per person queuing basis and are non-transferable.

The Queue often starts the evening before (for those seeking Show Court tickets) and increases very early in the morning.  Queue space is limited.  Especially overnight, so please check the status of the Queue on Twitter @Wimbledon or wimbledon.com before you travel.

The Queue starts in Wimbledon Park.  All early or late evening entries to the Park need to use Wimbledon Park Road gates only (signage is Car Park 10), which is a 5-minute walk from Southfields Station.  On arrival, proceed to the end of the Queue where you will be issued with a Queue Card.

Wimbledon has a Grounds capacity limit and once this is reached entry may only be possible as people leave the Grounds for the day.  

If you’re planning to join the Queue we recommend reading this official 2023 Wimbledon Guide To Queuing – which includes a map of the Queue and the Grounds – before heading to Wimbledon.

Ticket Resale in the Grounds

In the Grounds itself a Ticket Resale Kiosk will be in operation north of Court 18.  This is near the top of the St Mary’s Walk, next to The Hill.  You can purchase returned Show Court tickets for £15 for Centre Court and £10 for No.1 Court and No.2 Court tickets.  Note: these are subject to availability and not on sale before 3pm.
