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

EVENT PREVIEW

Taking place from Monday 24 June to Thursday 27 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.

In 2022 the 32 qualifiers each received a silver plaque to celebrate their achievement, paying tribute to 100 years of Centre Court.  Among the qualifiers was Germany’s Nicola Kuhn who ended his five-year wait to gain entry to a Grand Slam main draw and America’s Catherine Harrison who secured her Grand Slam debut some 10 years after she competed at Wimbledon in the juniors tournament. 

Who will be successful in 2024?  The next four days will reveal all!

Gates open for ticketholders at 10am with matches commencing from 11am each day.

SHOW COURTS 

Play takes place on 18 match courts including a show court (Court 11) which has capacity for 777 + 8 accessible seats.  The Wimbledon Channel will televise matches on Court 11.  This year seated capacity will increase to nearly 1600 in total.  Court 2 has two new stands with a total capacity of 552.

Seating is available on Court 11, Court 2, Court 10 and Courts 13 and 15.  Spectators can bring their own chair to watch matches on any other court with standing areas also available.  There are also 8 practice courts where, for the first time, spectators can watch players warm up throughout the day.

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

GUEST VILLAGE

A Guest Village will be located close to the match courts.  Centred around the big screen, a range of food and drink outlets will be available.

As in 2023 a pop-up Wimbledon Shop will be onsite selling a range of products.  There will also be two mini-tennis courts available for spectators.  LTA accredited coaches will be on hand to provide tips for all aspiring tennis champions.

Spectators are also welcome to bring their own food and drink.  A Public Information Desk will be in operation where you can collect a free map of the Grounds.

The main 2024 championships start on Monday 1 July 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.  Marketa Vondrousova and Carlos Alcaraz 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.
