Security and Prohibited Items
Information on items that can be brought on site. READ MORE

Our desire to protect the safety and security of all our visitors means that comprehensive security measures will be in place for The Championships, including extensive bag searches (of bags, vehicles and persons) on entry to the Grounds and the Show Courts. 

Please note all the restrictions on bag sizes (opposite) and prohibited items (below) which will be enforced. The speed of entry to the Grounds is decreased dramatically when multi-pocketed bags/backpacks are presented. Any prohibited items inadvertently brought to The Championships can be deposited at left luggage facilities outside the Grounds.

Any items discovered after entry through the gates will be confiscated and cannot be collected on exit.

Left Luggage

Left luggage facilities outside the Grounds are marked on the map of the Queue.

There are no left luggage facilities inside the Grounds.

A charge of £1 will be made for deposited items, apart from overnight equipment, which will cost £5.

Proceeds are donated towards improving facilities in Wimbledon Park.

  • A ticket (full price) is required.
  • Children under the age of 16 must attend with an adult and be supervised appropriately. 
  • Children over 5 and under 12 are allowed into all courts PROVIDED THEY ARE ACCOMPANIED by an adult AT ALL TIMES,  they have their own seat and DO NOT DISTURB OTHER SPECTATORS.
