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.

Resale of Used Tickets
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 5.00pm) 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 AELTC's turnstiles (prior to 5.00pm only) should be returned without delay to: The Ticket 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.
In the event of any curtailment or cancellation of play, due to any cause (other than negligence of the AELTC) other than rain, it is regretted that no refund of money can be made.
