Wimbledon tickets: 2023 ballot opens

The new tennis season is on the horizon which means that the countdown to grabbing Wimbledon 2023 tickets is on, especially with the return of the historic ballot for the first time since before the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The LTA Wimbledon ballot first launched in 1924, and is intended to be the fairest means of obtaining tickets for the championships. If your ballot entry is successful you will receive two tickets, one for yourself and a person of your choice.

If you want to see Novak Djokovic and Elena Rybakina attempt to defend their titles while tucking into some strawberries and cream, enter the Wimbledon 2023 ballot before Thursday 19th January 2023.

If your application in the Wimbledon ballot is unsuccessful, there are other avenues to go down to get hold of Wimbledon 2023 tickets.

The Queue

Last year saw the return of the iconic Wimbledon ticket queue. SW19 is rare among major sporting events as a venue where you can obtain tickets on the day of play.

A limited number of tickets are available daily for Centre Court, No. 1 Court and No. 2 Court, apart from on the last four days on Centre Court, when all tickets are sold in advance.

However, many thousands of grounds passes are available each day at the turnstiles, entitling the holder to use of unreserved seating and standing room on Courts 3 – 18.

Ticket Resale

There is also the possibility of picking up returned tickets from those who have exited the grounds early, leaving their tickets for resale.

On each day of play some ticket holders from the Wimbledon show courts, being Centre Court, No. 1 Court and No. 2 Court, will leave before play is completed.

Those that are already on the grounds of the All England Club can then buy these tickets for much less than face value and watch show court competition for the rest of the day in the seat designated to said tickets.

The 2023 Wimbledon Championships begin on the 3rd July, coming to a close on Sunday 16th July.
