We provide an online service that allows Buyers to find Sellers who wish to sell Tickets.

We will not allow You to buy or sell Tickets before You have registered with Us. To register, You must provide your full name, address, phone number, and email address and You must meet the following conditions:
- In order to register, a prospective Seller must be a Holder or be able to prove that he/she is an Authorised Representative. We reserve the right to terminate the account of any Seller who is not a Holder or cannot prove they are an Authorised Representative.
- We will only act for a prospective Seller who is at least 18 years old and has the capacity to enter into legally binding contracts.
- Upon request from Us, the Seller must provide a copy of the Wimbledon debenture certificate[s].
- When completing the registration details on the Website, the Seller shall provide, maintain and update true, accurate, current, up-to-date and complete information:
- about the Seller and
- Ticket Details
- Ticket Details must be updated by the Seller forthwith if any errors have been made on the Listing, or the Seller's ability to fulfil the sale of the Tickets through the Website is otherwise affected (e.g. the Tickets have been sold or given away through another channel).
- If any Information provided is untrue, inaccurate, obsolete, incomplete or misleading, We reserve the right to terminate the Seller's account.
- Registration on the Website does not of itself create a binding contract for sale of Tickets but indicates that the Seller is willing and able to sell Tickets.
- Registration constitutes the Buyer’s and Seller's agreement to receive correspondence from Green & Purple by email, telephone, SMS or other means regarding the administration of the account, listing of Tickets and any resultant purchases and agreements for sale thereof.
Username and Password
You will need a username and password to access the Website and use the Services. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your username and password and You are responsible for any action taken under your username or password.
Listing tickets as a Seller
To sell tickets, a Seller lists the Tickets for Sale on the Website.
As part of the Ticket listing process, the Seller may choose a Buy It Now Price and/or a Minimum Acceptable Offer Price for the Tickets. The Seller provides information including but not limited to the Ticket Details, all in accordance with the process outlined in the registration and Ticket listing process.
When listing Tickets in the same Listing, those Tickets must be consecutive seats (by seat number). If the Seller wishes to sell Tickets that are not consecutive, the Seller must create a separate Listing for the non-consecutive seats.
Tickets Listed on the Website are presented to Buyers inclusive of all applicable Taxes.
Potential Buyers may view Ticket Listings on the Website. Once the Buyer finds a Ticket they are interested in purchasing, the Buyer can purchase the Tickets immediately at the Buy it Now Price, if the seller has included a Buy It Now Price option with their Listing.
Buyers can also make an offer to purchase the Tickets in the Listing from the Seller.
The Seller can then:
- accept the Buyer’s offer, or
- reject the Buyer’s offer, or
- make a counteroffer to the Buyer.
Once a Ticket has been purchased at the Buy It Now Price, or an offer has been accepted by the Seller, a contract between the Buyer and Seller exists and the Buyer must then pay for the Tickets. Payment can be made via credit card, debit card, Paypal or direct bank transfer.
The Seller will then forward the Tickets to Our MyWimbledon Account and We will forward the Tickets to the Buyer’s MyWimbledon account.
We will forward the Ticket Sale Proceeds to the Seller within 7 calendar days of notification of receipt of tickets by the Buyer in their MyWimbledon Account.
At no time do We provide the Buyer's payment information to the Seller. The payment made by the Buyer is received and processed by Green & Purple on behalf of the Seller, and the Ticket Sale Proceeds are transferred to the Seller according to the payment policy in the help pages, using their preferred payment method.
Tickets not as described
The Seller is responsible for ensuring that the Ticket Details of the Tickets transferred to Our MyWimbledon Account match the Ticket Details in the Listing that has been purchased by the Buyer.
We will confirm that the Tickets forwarded to Our MyWimbledon Account match the Ticket Details.
In the event that the Ticket Details do not match the Ticket Details in the Listing, We will contact the Seller to confirm that the wrong Tickets have been forwarded to Our MyWimbledon Account.
If the Seller is in possession of the correct Tickets, We will ask the Seller to forward the correct Tickets to Our MyWimbledon Account. We will transfer the incorrect Tickets back to the Seller.
If the Seller is not in possession of the Tickets, and therefore cannot complete the sale, We will notify the Buyer and ask whether the Buyer wants to accept alternative Tickets from the Seller in the place of the advertised Tickets.
If the Buyer does accept the alternative Tickets, We will forward the alternative Tickets to the Buyer.
If the Buyer does not accept the alternative Tickets, We will cancel the transaction and return the Buyers’ payment in full and return the Tickets to the Seller.
In the event that We send the wrong Tickets to the Buyer’s myWimbledon Account in error, the Buyer must return the Tickets to Our myWimbledon account as soon as they are aware of the error, whether notified by Us or through other means. If We are unable to fulfil the sale (e.g. because the Seller is unable to supply the correct Listed Tickets), We will fully refund the Buyer. In the event that the Buyer uses Tickets that have been sent in error, or does not promptly return these Tickets, a refund will not be made to the Buyer.
Tax on Seller Proceeds
The Seller is responsible for determining whether the Seller is required to account for any Tax on the sale of the ticket. We take no responsibility for such issues. If the Seller is required to account for Tax on the sale of the ticket, the Seller should include the Tax (i.e., total) when setting ticket prices on the website. Note that this is separate from any Tax We are required to charge with respect to our fees relating to the transaction.
Cancellations or Variations by the Buyer
Once payment has been received by Us, Tickets may not be exchanged or refunded other than in Our absolute discretion.
Any request for cancellation or a variation must be put in writing and sent by email to email@example.com. We will review each case on its individual merits but cancellations/variations will only be made in exceptional situations.
Cancellations or Variations by the Seller
If the Seller fails to forward the Tickets to Our myWimbledon Account a full refund will be issued to the Buyer.
Cancellation of the Event and Force Majeure
In the event that the day or days for which Ticket[s] have been purchased and/or the tournament as a whole is cancelled for any reason whatsoever including but not limited to any act of Force Majeure the Buyer shall be entitled to a refund from the Seller which shall be dealt with in accordance with the provisions set out below.
For the purpose of these Sellers' Terms 'Force Majeure' shall include but not be limited to natural disaster (including but not limited to earthquakes, flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes or other extreme weather event); national emergency; war; sabotage; act(s) of terrorism; military operation; emergency or other government regulations; strikes; revolution, riot or other civil disorder or other civil disobedience; political or social protests; labour disputes or strikes; collapse or other failure of government - national or, regional or local; international, national, regional or local medical emergency to include but not limited to any epidemic or pandemic or any other outbreak of any virus, disease, plague or other infection; interruption to transport and/or delivery services or systems; interruption to or cancellation of the provision of any services to the venue or area in which the venue is situated to include electricity, gas and water; destruction of, damage to the venue or the vicinity in which it is situated; failure of the internet; any other cause beyond the reasonable control of the Seller.
In the event of cancellation, We will refund the full amount paid by the Buyer, less Deductions, within 7 days of official notification of the event cancellation by the AELTC.
In the event that Green & Purple has retained all or some of the purchase price paid by the Buyer, that sum less Deductions shall be repaid to the Buyer.
We will contact the Seller and require that the Seller refunds to Green & Purple the full sum paid by Green & Purple to the Seller. The Seller shall forthwith remit this sum to Green & Purple.
In the event that the Seller cannot be contacted, or otherwise refuses to refund the Sale Proceeds, Green & Purple will take further action as appropriate and reasonable to recover the sum.
In the event of a Force Majeure event, Green & Purple shall have no liability to the Seller or to the Buyer for any claim or loss alleged by the Seller or Buyer to have arisen therefrom.
Refusal of Entry
Green & Purple accepts no liability for any costs or losses incurred by the Buyer as a result of being refused entry to, or ejected from, the Event as a result of:
- failing to adhere to or meet the Conditions of Entry.
- a decision taken by the AELTC, law enforcement or any other party authorised by the AELTC to refuse entry or eject Event attendees.
- being unable to access the Buyer’s Tickets, via their myWimbledon account.
- attending on a date other than the date set out in the Ticket Details.
We will forward the Ticket Sale Proceeds to the Seller within 7 calendar days of notification of receipt of tickets by the Buyer in their myWimbledon Account. We have the right to withhold payment or collect repayment if the event was re-scheduled or cancelled or if We have a good faith basis to believe such sales were unlawful or otherwise made in material violation of this agreement.
A payment to Green & Purple will appear on the Buyer’s payment method statement as “WIMBLEDON TICKETS”.

We had a great time on Saturday
"Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time on Saturday and that it all went smoothly. I didn't realise it was better than making a booking in a restaurant, but even then we were very lucky to get a beautiful table for 6 at the Wingfield restaurant. It was the only one available! Thanks for helping me organise this nice day with the family and let's stay in touch for future years."
