I was here yesterday,
which was the first time I've been to the first day of Wimbledon. The
atmosphere was great, the weather was perfect and the matches were fantastic.
The time goes surprisingly quickly as you're captivated by thrilling matches.
The food is of ok quality and will cost you about £8-9 pounds without a drink. Alcohol is pricey with a glass of Pimm’s costing about £8. The classic Wimbledon strawberries and cream are currently just under £3.00 which is very pricey for 10 strawberries; though this year HSBC customers can get a portion for free, just show your card at the booth to get a voucher for the stalls.
You can, most people do, bring your own food to Wimbledon. Whilst you’re not supposed to eat or drink during the match they unofficially allow you to, just don’t make a mess.
If you're looking for a good place to lie down between matches (have an ice-cream) I recommend going to Aorangi Terrace, colloquially known as Henman Hill/Murray mound. It's situated behind court 1 and there is a large screen for you to view the centre court match on. If you don't have a ticket to the main courts you can pay £20 to enter Wimbledon, with this you can you go to the unreserved seats of courts 4-19.
If you want tickets for Wimbledon 2013 you can apply via the public ballot from August - December 2012. You have to request an application form, which is then posted to you, I wish you could simply complete the form online but it doesn't look like that will be an option any time soon. Tickets start from around £35 for the early rounds and £120 for the finals. You simply apply for tickets to Wimbledon, you can not specify which date or indeed which round you want, you may get the early rounds or you may get final tickets, though tickets to the finals and semis are very rare as most tickets are allocated to businesses. You also can only apply for two tickets per person and will know if you have been allocated tickets in February, though you don’t actually receive your tickets and see your seat number until June.
One of the best events held in the UK. Not too mention the oldest tennis tournament in the world but still world class..
The atmosphere is amazing.. Queues are a little long upon entering but definitely worth the wait. Great day out!
I have been twice to the championships and will be going this year. It is one of the best organised events in the country.
Tickets on the day are very reasonable in price. The queue is long but is controlled in an organised fashion with plenty of facilities whilst you wait. Once the gates open the security is efficient and fast. The ticket booths likewise are quick.
The outside courts are great for spectating and movement is fairly easy between them. The ticket resale on the show courts is the best offer in sport and potentially allow you to see the best players of all time for £5 charity donation (plus gen admission entry).
Food options could be better, but generally one of the best days out for any sport/tennis fan.
Apart from the long queues early in the morning, the Wimbeldon Champsionship really does embed Britishness and sport very well. On a nice summers day it can be a great plesure watching one of the games
For all the people that are not from the UK. I went on a tour of the stadium last year which I really enjoyed and would recommend. As you get to go inside the stadiums and get interesting history about the games and facilites. I was really impressed that I wanted to get a ticket to Wimbeldon the following year, however I was unaware at for most seats you have to go into a ballet that closes in Jan/Feb at the beginning of the year. And whilst they do realease seats on the day of the tournamet you have to get to the stadium super early to get in. I did go down and the que had already had too many people in it that all the seats for the next day had already been calculated as gone! So I was a bit disappointed about that. Fingers crossed though that I can see it next year :)
Experienced my first tennis at Wimbledon yesterday and watched the first English lady, Katie O'Brien, go out, beaten by the Japanese, Date-Krumm, in the cosy, new Show Court 3. The atmosphere in the grounds is fabulous, the surroundings are so undeniably English. The whole place just buzzes with excitement. It's rather addictive since I can't wait to go again but this time I'll have to pay as I'd managed to win tickets on the Wimbledon website itself. I don't think my husband would ever agree to queuing so I can't just drag him along, nor any sane member of my family! I will have to rely on the ballot next year.... We watched queues forming of fans outside the clubhouse, hoping to catch a glimpse of Nadal, but my impatient husband pulled me from the scrum! It's brilliant fun with the unpredictable Engllish weather adding to the mix - it just happened that the forecasters were right for once as the rain came down bang on cue at 5 pm. Also, as an avid gardener, I just love the co-ordinated flowers - the displays are truly beautiful.
Ive been to Wimbledon a couple of times and enjoyed it, if the weather is kind to you that makes everything. That was before the roof. Partook in the obligatory strawberries and cream which were delicious. The Pimms is very good too ! It is expensive but well worth experiencing if you havent been before. Thats if you can get a ticket !
I've only ever been to the club when the championships are running, but it's very well organised, clean and the catering isn't bad either. A few years ago the food there was terrible but lately it's quite good, and if you can take the time off work it makes a fabulous day out, even if you have to queue to get in (that's part of the fun) :)
Wimbledon Tennis is the best watching it on tv is no good after you have been there and watched it all live. The atmosphere, the games, the players the staff all make this a fantatsic thing to witness. amazing
Wimbledon is totally amazing and I had the best day of my life so far..and that’s no exaggeration!! Myself and my mom got debenture tickets for opening day on centre court. It was without a doubt an incredible experience. We went to the Roof Top bar to get drinks and have a sandwich before play began. Get your orders in early as there were many people stressing and nearly missing the start of play due to a delay in the kitchen. They only offer 3 types of sandwich but they are really good and a nice snack. There are many other seated atble served restaurants if you prefer a bigger meal. Every member of staff we met were so friendly and helpful. They were extremely accommodating when all we wanted were strawberries and champagne in the afternoon tea lounge, which has great views over some of the outer courts.
Centre court itself is simply great. The atmosphere is wonderful.
I recommend catching the buses they put on to and from the grounds as it is only £4 return and the traffic routes give priority to the buses, so it’s much quicker than trying to get a taxi.
I love watching Wimbledon on the tv every year so when i got the chance to go Centre Court at the Federer v Nadal final a few years ago I was ecstatic and couldn’t wait.It was honestly one of the best experiences of my life and I would go back any day if I got the chance.Tickets are expensive but totally worth it when you get there,there is a bit of queueing to get in but everyone is in good spirits so it’s not too bad.There are lots of courts that you can watch for free and you can sit on Henman Hill and watch the main match.You can also queue after 5 and try to get re-sale tickets for some of the bigger courts for a much cheaper price.A great place to visit.
I have been to Wimbledon twice and both times have been great. Even though I haven’t seen any of the top seeded matches, there are plenty of great players to watch. If you go after 5pm you can queue to get in and get centre court and court 1 resale tickets for a fiver.
You can also wander in and out of the smaller matches going on and get to see plenty of people (that comes with the entrance ticket).
Wimbledon is one of the best of the tennis gram slams, and the only one on grass. If you can get a ticket during the tournament is a great special, the cheapest all an all day ground pass. But then you do not see and show courts, they have large screens so you can still with games on number 1 and centre court. If you want to see big games they you will need to apply for tickets soon after the event has finished, for next year as the tickets are done by a ballot. On the day you can also but return for matches that people have handed a ticket back for and gone home early
For other time of the year they have great museum if you visit out side if the Wimbledon fortnight
The All England Lawn Tennis Club & Croquet Club is a not-for-profit organisation. The taxed funds generated by The Championships, are used by the LTA to develop tennis in Great Britain. Great and competitive sports club.
