After how long does it take to sell a house? and how much does it cost to sell a house? one of the most common questions received by Robert Holmes & Co is how do I get tickets for the Wimbledon Championships?
The Championships at the All England Club in Wimbledon start on 27 June and culminate with the ladies’ singles final on 9 July and the men’s final a day later.
The bad news for anybody wanting to follow the fortunes of Andy Murray and Johanna Konta is that the public ballot for Wimbledon 2016 closed on 31 December last year.
Successful applicants will be notified by post until June, where you will be given a unique pin to login to the official Wimbledon website to pay for the tickets.
Advance tickets for the Championships can be bought through Ticketmaster.
The website puts several hundred tickets for Centre Court and Court 3 on sale the day before each match.
It’s advisable to sign up with Ticketmaster for its Wimbledon newsletter, which will have details of when and where tickets are available in advance.
Secondary ticketing sites such as Viagogo, Getmein and StubHub also have resale tickets on offer.
Form an orderly queue
Wimbledon is one of the few large sporting events where tickets can be bought on the day.
But beware. There is one queue for the on-day sale of tickets at the Gate 3 turnstiles.
Tickets are sold strictly on the basis of one per person queuing and payment is by cash only.
A limited number of tickets are available daily for Centre, Number One and Number Two courts except for the last four days on Centre Court, when all are sold in advance.
If you’re not bothered about getting show court seats, there are thousands of ground passes available each day, which entitles holders to use the unreserved seating and standing room in courts 3 to 19.
Buy a hospitality package
The final option is to purchase a hospitality package from Keith Prowse or Sportsworld.
