Nerves will be jangling this week with a place in the main Wimbledon draw at stake at the Wimbledon qualifying tournament, taking place just a few miles away from the All England Lawn Tennis Club which has hosted the iconic tournament since 1877.

Held from Monday 20 June to Thursday 23 June at the Wimbledon Qualifying and Community Sports Centre, the Qualifying Competition comprises Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ Singles competitions where players must win through three rounds to earn one of the 32 Championships’ Main Draw places, 16 for men and women respectively. 

Play takes place on 18 match courts including one show court which is televised via the Wimbledon Channel.  Seating is available on Court 11, Court 10 and Courts 13 and 15.  Spectators can bring their own chair to watch matches on any other court.

The vast majority of the Grounds are accessible, albeit there are limited spaces on the main show court (Court 11).  There will be a large screen within the Grounds broadcasting matches from this court for anyone unable to find a place on the seating stand.  There is limited cover, so checking the weather forecast before leaving home to prepare for all eventualities is recommended.

A range of food outlets will be available in the Grounds, including a bar.  Spectators are also welcome to bring their own food and drink supplies.  There is a Public Information Desk where you may have any of your questions answered and collect a free map of the Grounds.

The main 2022 championships start on Monday 27 June on the iconic grass courts in south-west London.  Champions will be crowned and tennis history made as the winners follow in the footsteps of finest players in the history of the game.  Ash Barty and Novak Djokovic defend their women’s and men’s singles titles respectively.

Who will prevail this week and win a golden qualifying pass into the main Wimbledon draw?  All roads lead to the AELTC Community Sports Ground in Roehampton to find out.

🚊 🚗 Travel tips: The only public entry to the Grounds (see map below) is by the entrance gate in Bank Lane, off Priory Lane.  Public transport is highly recommended as there are no public parking facilities at the Grounds, which are in a residential area where traffic patrols will be in operation.  The nearest railway station is Barnes (with connections to Clapham Junction and London Waterloo) which is a short taxi ride or approximately a 15 minute walk to the venue.  Alternatively, you can take a London Underground train to East Putney station (on the District Line) and take the 337 bus alighting at Rosslyn Park RFC which is a 10 minute walk away from the Grounds.  Plan your journey at the Transport for London website.
