2015 Tickets - Essential Information


There are FOUR ways to obtain tickets for The Championships 2015:

--> The Ballot

--> The Queue

--> Ticketmaster (see below for details). 

--> Official hospitality packages available from Keith Prowse and Sportsworld.  

PLEASE NOTE: Other than Ticketmaster, The AELTC does not have any authorised ticket-only agents who sell tickets on the internet.

If you are in any doubt as to whether the tickets or packages which you are proposing to purchase are valid for entry to The Championships please contact the AELTC Ticket Office.

The AELTC cannot guarantee that tickets purchased other than from itself or authorised agents will be valid or will gain entry.  Customers who buy tickets from other sources do so at their own risk.


  • In September 1990 measures were introduced to minimise the black market sale of tickets:
    - To prevent tickets destined for tennis fans from being redirected to the highest bidder. 
    - To curb the black market in Wimbledon tickets, particularly with regard to unofficial corporate hospitality companies who acquire tickets from this source.
  • Under these conditions, all Wimbledon tickets, apart from Debentures which are clearly marked, will only be valid if sold either by The All England Lawn Tennis Club or by one of its licensed and authorised agents. Unauthorised sale or transfer of tickets immediately invalidates them.
  • The AELTC takes active steps to monitor and control sales including those made via shops and internet sites.

     Sellers of non-Debenture tickets will be contacted and sellers found to be in breach of AELTC ticket policy may be banned from receiving tickets in the future as well as being subject to legal action.

  • Where the details of tickets being advertised for sale are known, the tickets are cancelled meaning that the purchasers will not gain entry to The Championships.
Please watch the BUY SMART, BE HAPPY video below for guidance on avoiding touting.

2015 ticket availability and prices


Owing to huge demand for Wimbledon tickets, the Public Ballot (since 1924) is still regarded as the fairest way to distribute Show Court tickets. It is open to everyone and remains substantially oversubscribed. See Ballot for more information.

A limited number of tickets for Centre, No.1, No.2 Courts and Grounds Admission can be purchased on the day at the turnstiles. These tickets cannot be booked in advance of the days which they are used and can be purchased only via The Queue.

Play is scheduled to begin at 1pm on Centre Court on days 1-11, and at 2pm on the final Saturday and Sunday. On No.1 Court, play is scheduled to begin at 1pm on all 13 days.

Tickets are available for corporate hospitality and overseas package tours through the AELTC and its official licensed agents, Keith Prowse and Sportsworld.

See Hospitality Information Sheet for further information.


Resale of Used Tickets

  • Every effort is made to ensure seat tickets that are no longer needed are made available for resale from the Ticket Resale Kiosk to people already within the Grounds. Original ticket holders are asked to put unwanted tickets in special red boxes for collection by the Honorary Stewards or, if wishing to retain them as souvenirs, to have the barcodes scanned on leaving the Grounds so that a new ticket may be generated.
  • Since 1954, over £2 million has been raised. In 2015, the entire proceeds will be donated via the Wimbledon Foundation’s grant programmes to charities and community organisations. Recipients include charities in the London Boroughs of Merton and Wandsworth, and Services’ benevolent funds.
  •  HSBC, the Official Bank of The Championships, has agreed to donate in 2015 a sum equal to the total amount raised by the Ticket Resale scheme.

Cancellation of Play Due to Rain

Details of the Raincheck policy introduced in 2001 are as follows and apply to all 13 scheduled days of The Championships, including the final Sunday.

i.        If there is less than one hour's play because of rain on the court for which tickets have been bought, the original purchasers of the tickets for that court on that day will be refunded with the amount which they paid for those tickets - the maximum refund payable will be the face value of the tickets for the day concerned.

ii.        Purchasers of Grounds passes at the turnstiles (except those purchased after 5pm) will be eligible for a full refund if, due to rain, the average amount of play on those courts accessible with a Grounds pass and for which play was originally scheduled is less than one hour.

iii.        If there is more than one hour's play, but less than two hours' play, refunds will be limited to half the amount paid.

iv.        The Referee's decision on how much play has taken place will be final.

v.        Only the original purchasers are eligible for refunds under this policy.  Refunds will be paid out automatically for tickets bought in advance, but tickets bought at the turnstiles (prior to 5 p.m. only) should be returned without delay to: TheTicket Office, AELTC, "Raincheck", PO Box 98, London SW19 5AE.

vi.        In view of the numbers that could be involved, please do not call at the AELTC's Ticket Office or telephone the AELTC.

vii.        Tickets purchased at the Ticket Resale kiosk are not covered by this policy as the monies are passed to charity.

viii.        Separate terms and conditions apply a) to Debenture Holders as notified by The All England Lawn Tennis Ground plc and b) to any extra days of play.

Important note:

Refunds are calculated as defined above and using the Referee’s record of how much play has taken place on any given day. It is this official figure which determines whether or not customers are entitled to refunds,  rather than the amount of play which an individual spectator may have seen.

Ticket Distribution

  • Demand for Wimbledon tickets has exceeded supply for much of The Championships' history.
  • Wimbledon's policy has always been to ensure that tickets are allocated fairly. The current policy is based on the following principles:
    • Even though all tickets could be sold in advance, a number of prime tickets from the public allocation should be reserved and made available for sale on the day.
    • Debentures offered so as to fund the continual upgrading of the facilities.
    • Less than 10% of Centre/No.1 Court seats reserved for the official hospitality market.
    • Money raised from all ticket sales contributes to the surplus that is passed annually to The Lawn Tennis Association for investment in the British game.
    • The existing allocations represent a fair balance of all interests. In 2012, these were:






Includes the annual Public Ballot, tennis players/members in LTA-affiliated tennis clubs across Great Britain Schools, and on-day sales.




Introduced in 1922 to finance the purchase of the new ground in Church Road. Money raised from Debentures has enabled facilities at The Championships to be improved without reducing the annual surplus passed to the LTA.




Hospitality, both private and corporate, is provided by the AELTC and its official licensed agents.




Schools, players, press, LTA Council photographers and television, Royal Box, officials, AELTC members, overseas tennis associations, etc.
