Centre Court or No. 1 Court: Which Wimbledon Debenture Ticket Is The Best Value?

Eyeing up a Debenture Ticket for this year’s Wimbledon Championships? Check out our guide that will help you decide Debenture Tickets are best for you.

Perhaps the most sought-after tickets in world sport, Wimbledon Debenture Tickets give patrons unparalleled access to the best seats at the most prestigious tennis championships in the world.

With a Debenture Ticket, you’ll have access to the best views in the house on Wimbledon’s historic Centre Court or the Championship’s newly-renovated No. 1 Court, as well as some of the best bars and restaurants the Championships have to offer.

In short, a Debenture Ticket provides the ultimate Wimbledon experience and gives tennis fans an exclusive experience, watching the world’s greatest tennis players showcase their skills.

They are perhaps the best seats money can buy at the Championships, with spectators gaining access to seats at the same level as the Royal Box on Centre Court.

But which Debenture Ticket is the best value for money?

Firstly, it’s worth noting the difference between a Wimbledon Debenture and a Debenture Ticket, and the two courts you can buy Debenture Tickets for.

We go into more detail on the specifics in our FAQ guides here, but in short, Wimbledon Debentures are issued every five years by the AELTC and are normally sold in pairs. Each Debenture corresponds to a specific court, either Centre Court or No. 1 Court. Debenture holders received one Debenture Ticket for every day of the Wimbledon Championships.

The ticket holder can legally sell or swap Debenture tickets, with tickets for the first round singles on Centre Court typically costing around 50% more than a No. 1 Court ticket.

What are the differences between a Centre Court Debenture Ticket and a No. 1 Court Debenture Ticket?

It’s worth noting that both Centre Court and No. 1 Court Debenture Tickets will guarantee you one of the best and most exclusive experiences at Wimbledon and in world sport.

Centre Court Debenture Tickets are notably more expensive than No. 1 Court Debenture Tickets, especially if you’re looking to attend the Men’s or Women’s Finals on Centre Court.

That aside, you will be able to see the world’s best tennis stars in action on both courts, with No. 1 Court regularly boasting some of the biggest and best duels of the tournament.

Plus, unlike many of the open courts, both Centre Court and No. 1 Court are now protected by retractable roofs, meaning there’s no chance you’ll have to sit in the rain, and there’s also no chance you’ll miss any play.

In fact, there’s a greater chance you’ll see more tennis in one day with a Debenture Ticket, with games from other courts sometimes being rescheduled to be played in the evenings to Centre Court and No. 1 Court.

Access to Debenture facilities

If you want a refreshment break, all Debenture Ticket holders can access the exclusive Debenture Holders’ lounges and restaurants which offer some of the best and most prestigious cuisine the tournament has to offer.

You can even pre-book a reservation in one of the AELTC’s Wimbledon Debenture Holders’ restaurants which include the excellent Champions Room (by ballot only) in Centre Court and No. 1 Court’s signature Renshaw Restaurant..

But perhaps the greatest thing about both types of Debenture Tickets is that you are guaranteed a full day of world-class tennis. This makes Debenture Tickets for either court exceptional value.

When deciding on which court is best for you, it’s best to try and time your visit so you can see your favourite players in action. The draw for the Championships is usually made the week before the tournament. If you’re keen to see a particular player in action, keep your eyes peeled on the draw.
