  • WIMBLEDONAs many of you will be aware Wimbledon 2021 will be going ahead. There will be no ballot for tickets – these will be released ‘mid-June’ for on-line purchase. There will be no queuing for or re-sale of tickets in the evening. It is hoped that there will be tickets available for a minimum of 25% of normal capacity. Anyone who ‘won’ and paid for a ticket in the 2020 ballot will be offered the same ticket in 2022. It is not yet clear what happens to those that ‘won’ tickets in ballots, including our own club ballot, but tickets were not actually paid for. We will keep you up to date but in the meantime please check out the official Wimbledon website for the latest information:  Home - The Championships, Wimbledon 2021 - Official Site by IBM
