UK Ballot for The Championships 2017

About the Ballot

The Public Ballot, introduced in 1924, has always been substantially oversubscribed.

To obtain an application form:

• UK applicants: please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope from 1 September 2016 to 15 December 2016 to:
AELTC, PO Box 98, London, SW19 5AE

• Wheelchair users: please specify that you require a Wheelchair Ballot application form. If you have entered the main ballot, but subsequently become a wheelchair user, please contact the Ticket Office.

• Please note: we will not issue forms to personal callers after 15 December 2016.

• Requests for forms postmarked after 15 December 2016 and applications which are not accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope will not be processed.

• Overseas applicants: please check from September 2016 for details.

Only one application per household is permitted.

Please apply early to avoid postal delays in December.

Applying for the ballot does not automatically entitle an applicant to tickets which are allocated at random by a computer to successful applicants. It is not possible to request tickets for specific days or courts, as the day and court offered are also chosen randomly by the computer selection process.

Tickets should not be purchased as gifts as they are non-transferable. Tickets are only valid for use by the original applicant (and their guest, where applicable)

Tickets must NOT be transferred or sold.

Entry does not automatically entitle applicants to tickets for Wimbledon, but to a place in the draw for tickets. It is not possible to request tickets for specific days or courts, as the day and court offered are chosen randomly by a computerised selection process.

Applying for other Ballots

The LTA (Lawn Tennis Association) operate a series of ballots for Wimbledon tickets. To find out more, please visit the LTA website ballot pages.
