There are 4 basic ways to get tickets to Wimbledon
Option 1. You can get lucky and buy them from a scalper riding the tube or hanging out around the tube stop. This is not a recommended approach and chances are pretty good you'll get scammed.
Option 2. You queue up in line starting at around 4 am on the day you'd like to attend. Most people get grounds passes but lucky few will score Court 1 tickets and an even rarer few will score a few center court tickets.
Option 3. Enter the official Wimbledon ballot. To enter the ballot go onto the official Wimbledon website and enter. If you are successful you'll be notified by post in February and provided with a pin number to log onto the site and pay for your tickets. You have a better chance of winning a visit into the Willie Wonka Chocolate factory.
Option 4. Buy your Wimbledon tickets from an NATB member company. NATB Member companies are the most trusted ticket resellers who accept payment via credit card. Furthermore, NATB member companies are highly regulated so you never have to worry about receiving bad tickets, they're always legit. Yes, eSeats.com is a registered member in good standing with the NATB.
Wimbledon Debenture Market Tickets
When you buy Wimbledon tickets from eSeats.com you are purchasing 100% guaranteed Debenture seating, the only Wimbledon tickets that can be legally transferred. All other tickets are issued to the original applicant and must be used by them, as per all England lawn and tennis association rulings.
The Debenture seats are the finest on Centre and No1 courts and offer an unrivalled view of play. Your ticket is valid for the entire day and allows access to all outside courts, on a first come first serve basis with the exception of the show courts, which require separate tickets.
All Debenture tickets come with a swing badge allowing access to the Debenture lounge.
Wimbledon Ticket Prices
Wimbledon tickets are among the most expensive tickets in sport because the demand far exceeds the available supply of these tickets. Wimbledon Tickets are sold to you at "Market Price" which is set by the owners of the debenture tickets and are generally much higher than the original price printed on the tickets. All tickets are guaranteed to be delivered to you in pairs side by side. Tickets are printed about 2-3 weeks before the matches so you can expect to receive your tickets shortly thereafter or delivered to your hotel.
Getting to the All England Lawn and Tennis Club
From central London, take a westbound District line train to Southfields, located 15 minutes away from the grounds, or Wimbledon, located 20 minutes from The Championship grounds. The other decent option would be to take a Tram. Trams run from East Croydon station to Wimbledon every 10-15 minutes from Monday to Saturday, and every 20 minutes on Sundays.
The Southfields and Wimbledon stations offer the nearest tube lines to the All England Lawn Tennis Club grounds - both stops are on the District Line. Wimbledon is based in South-West London and is in zone 3.
Your day at Wimbledon
Wimbledon debenture tickets are for the whole day's play on Centre Court, and provide full access to the unreserved seating on the outside courts of the All England Lawn Tennis Ground. Rain delays and cancelled matches are a thing of the past.
No More Rain Outs at Wimbledon Centre Court
In 2010 the All England Lawn and Tennis Association introduced the much talked about closing roof. Spectators at center court can finally be assured that they will see a full day of tennis without weather delays. Center Court debenture Market ticket holders have access to the exclusive debenture ticket holders lounge. If that isn't enough, you also have access to a slew of dinning and bar options located around the grounds.
Don't miss the strawberries and cream
Wimbledon Strawberries and Cream. A visit to Wimbledon is never complete without indulging oneself with a cup of strawberries and cream. I've splurged myself during my trip to Wimbledon and highly recommend you do as well. So where does this tradition of Strawberries and cream come from anyways?
The strawberry has been growing wild in Great Britain for centuries and it was in the early part of the 17th Century that it began to be properly cultivated. Mrs Beeton in her Victorian Book of Household Management suggests it got its name from the fact that people used to put straw under the growing berries to keep them moist and clean. The link between the Wimbledon Tennis Championships and strawberries probably came about because June is not far off the beginning of the English strawberry season. Some early and canny Wimbledon caterer grasped the opportunity to make a quick profit by serving a handful of them with a dollop of cream to the tennis eager spectators. It has now become a traditional part of this quintessentially English end of June event and is held the week after Royal Ascot.
