Wimbledon Ballot Ladies Tennis Match

The Wimbledon Public Ballot is a way for the public to obtain tickets to the Tournament. When is the Ballot held and will there be one for 2022?

What are the Wimbledon Ticket Ballots?

First held in 1924, the Wimbledon Public Ballot is intended to be the fairest way of allocating tickets to the general public.

There is also a separate Overseas Ballot for non-UK residents.

Competition for both Ballots is fierce, so tickets are not guaranteed.

2020 Ballot Cancellation

On the 1st April 2020, the All England Tennis Club (AELTC) announced the cancellation of the 2020 Championships due to COVID health concerns.

The Club also decided that successful applicants for the 2020 Wimbledon Public Ballot would be refunded, if they had already paid for their tickets.

The Club also offered to 2020 Ballot ticket holders the opportunity to purchase tickets for the same day and the same court for the 2021 Championships.

There was therefore no Public Ballot for the 2021 Championships.

2021 Championships Disruption

Ongoing COVID restrictions meant that the 2020 Public Ballot was postponed again in 2021.

2022 Ballot

Any applicant who paid their 2020 ballot tickets has been given the opportunity to purchase tickets for the same day and court for The Championships 2022. There was, therefore, no Public Ballot for the 2022 Championships.

When will the next Wimbledon Public Ballot be held?

The next Public Ballot is likely to be for the 2023 Championships.

When is the application deadline?

Although there will be no public ballot for the 2022 Championships, the deadline for the Wimbledon Ballot online registration is normally the 31st December.

In line with previous years, successful Ballot applicants should be informed from February 2023. Successful applicants are chosen randomly by a computerised selection process and it is not possible to request tickets for specific days or courts.

Tickets are limited to 2 per applicant and Ballot Tickets are not transferable.

Any unwanted tickets or unpaid tickets from successful applicants will be re-balloted until all tickets have been distributed.

At the date of writing, the AELTC have not confirmed the prices of Wimbledon Ballot tickets in 2023. In 2020 Centre Court prices ranged from £70 for the first two days of the tournament to £240 for the Men’s Finals.

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."
