Friday 26th of June 2015
Pack your whites, stock up on your strawberries and head to this year’s Wimbledon Championships 2015. The tournament takes place from 29th June to 12th July and promises to be an action-packed event.
The Wimbledon Championships are a true British institution; the oldest tennis tournament in the world, Wimbledon is played across 19 grass courts and is considered by many as the most prestigious of all competitions. Summer is for relaxing in front of the giant screen atop Henman Hill, watching the biggest names in tennis battle it out for the top prize.
Tickets for the tournament have already been distributed via ballot; but if you’re lucky, you can queue on the day and gain access to the outer courts. Around 500 tickets are put aside each day for the Centre Court and Courts 1 and 2, and can be bought on a one ticket per person basis.
If you’re not an early bird, then not to worry, you can still turn up later in the day and get access to the courts; tickets are sold each day for seats that have already been vacated by spectators.
All tickets must be purchased at the event itself, no telephone bookings will be taken and tickets can be bought with cash only. Spectators are advised against purchasing tickets from touts outside the grounds, as this could lead to you being denied access to the tournament.
Don’t fancy queuing for a ticket? Then that’s not a problem as big screens will be mounted across London City Centre, for all spectators to enjoy.
