Your Wimbledon Ticket

All Wimbledon Tennis Debenture Tickets are issued via the official 'My Wimbledon' app and will need to be presented on your mobile phone at the entrance of the All England Lawn Tennis Club.  Therefore it is important that you bring you phone with you and that it is well charged up to last the day.  You will also need to bring photo ID with you noting that the name on the ID must exactly match the name on your tickets.

Ticket holders are permitted to exit and re-enter the grounds at any time during the day.

Getting to & Accessing the All England Lawn Tennis Club

If you are arriving by London Underground the best station to alight is Southfields Station which is on the District Line (the green one).   All debenture ticket holders are encouraged to use Gate 3 which is located on Church Road and is around a 15 minute walk away from the station.

If it is easier for you to arrive into Wimbledon Station, it is worth noting that there is a dedicated Wimbledon Championships Bus service.  The bus picks up from the station and drops off near to Gate 11. 


If you are arriving in a London Taxi (black cab) the driver will be able to drive through the road closure on Church Road in order to drop you off much nearer to Gate 3.  If you are arriving with a minicab / ride sharing app such as Uber the driver will not be able to enter the closed road and will instead have to drop off in the designated zones on Maryatt Road and Victoria Drive. 

Please note that if you are in possession of a Blue Badge, you will be able to get dropped off opposite Gate 4 on Church Road or by Gate 13 on Somerset Road. 


If you are planning to drive to Wimbledon we will provide you with an official Wimbledon Debenture Holder Parking Pass.  Parking is provided for Debenture Holders in Car Park 8.  At Car Park 8, there is also an 'Arrivals Hub'.  In this area you will be able to sit and wait for friends and refreshments such as water and tea and coffee will also be available. 

Opening Times

Although the gates of the All England Lawn Tennis Club open at 10am, the Debenture Holders areas on both No.1 Court and Centre Court don't open until 10.30.   Everything closes down 30 minutes after the end of play or at 10pm - whichever is earliest. 

Matches start on the 'outside courts' at 11am and as a Debenture Ticket holder you are free to watch any match that is taking place on the Outside Courts.  Play starts at 1pm on No.1 Court and at 1.30pm on Centre Court.  However, both the Ladies and the Men's Final matches begin at 2pm.

Wimbledon Tennis Dress Code

There isn't an official dress code for Wimbledon although if someone had to describe it 'Smart Casual' would be a good summation.  There is not need for men to wear a jacket and tie and smart shorts are acceptable.  Ladies often dress for the occasion and the organisers to prefer that ripped jeans, dirty shoes and sports shorts are not worn.


No.1 Court and the Centre Court have their own cloakroom areas, however space within them is limited.  It is therefore advised that people bring as few items as possible and that everything is packed into a bag that measures no more than 40cm x 30cm x 30cm

Wifi & Phone Charging

Wifi is available to Debenture Holders within the grounds of the All England Lawn Tennis Club.  To access the network you will be required to have downloaded the MyWimbledon app to your phone and to use the same email address as you do to login to the app too access the WiFi.

Mobile phone charging units are also provided and these are located just inside the main entrances to the debenture seating areas on both courts. 


Both smoking and vaping are not allowed in any of the Wimbledon Debenture areas, including on any of the outdoor balconies. 

The Wimbledon Shop

A trip to Wimbledon isn't complete without popping into the official Wimbledon Shop!  The largest Wimbledon Shop is located adjacent to the No.1 Court, however there is another excellent shop in the Centre Court Complex. Both shops sell a range of high quality items including clothing by Ralf Lauren, homewares, gifts and accessories.
