Wimbledon Tickets


Wimbledon is an annual tennis Championship which takes place at The All England Lawn Tennis Club which is located in southwest London. The history of the game began in 1877 as 'The All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club' which was originally located on Worple Road, Wimbledon.

The game was an all-male affair up until 1884 when the Ladies Singles was introduced to Wimbledon and since then, has evolved and moved with the times, surviving the Second World War and the ever increasing volumes of spectators.

The Championship epitomizes the beginning of British summer time, with Wimbledon tickets being allocated via a ballot system, and avid fans camping onsite to get tickets on the day to watch top players.

The total prize fund is £14,600,000 with the overall champion winning over £1,000,000 each for both female and male games. The 2011 Champion for the Gentlemen's Singles is Rafael Nadal and the Ladies Singles, Maria Sharapova.
