Wimbledon 2018 date: When is it? How to get Wimbledon tickets
Roger Federer won a record-breaking eighth Wimbledon Championship at the weekend when he beat Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 on Centre Court. It marked the 19th Grand Slam of his career.
After the victory, the Swiss star said: “Wimbledon was always my favourite tournament.
“My heroes walked the grounds here and walked the courts here. Because of them, I think I became a better player too.
“To make history here at Wimbledon really means a lot to me just because of all of that really. It’s that simple.”
Meanwhile, Muguruza said it was “amazing” to beat her “role model” in straight sets.
The Spaniard said: ”I’m happy that once again I see myself winning a Grand Slam, something that is so hard to do. It means a lot of confidence.”
With the dust still setting on an enthralling fortnight of tennis, Wimbledon fans are already clamouring to get tickets for next year’s competition. Here is everything you need to know.
How to get Wimbledon 2018 tickets
Wimbledon 2018 takes place between Monday 2 July and Sunday 15 July, 2018.
Demand for Wimbledon tickets has always outweighed supply so, in 1924, the Public Ballot was introduced to ensure all fans are given a fair crack at getting a seat.
Entry to the ballot does not guarantee an applicant a ticket, rather it enters them into a random computer-generated draw.
It is not possible to request tickets for a specific match or court.
To enter the ballot, applicants must send self-addressed envelope to AELTC, P.O. BOX 98, London, SW19 5AE.
Details have not yet been released but, based on the 2017 requirements, this will probably need to be done by the end of 2017 with the draws expected to start in February 2018.
After the draw, winners will be notified and asked to pay for their tickets.
For more information on how to apply for The Public Ballot, visit the Wimbledon website.
Alternatively, a limited number of premium tickets are available to purchase on the day of play.
Many fans choose to camp out on the Club’s lawns the night before the match they want in hopes of getting a ticket. A guide to purchasing tickets by queuing can be found here
There is also an opportunity to get a place through Ticketmaster. Each day several hundred tickets are sold online, but high demand means chances of getting hold of a ticket this way are slim.
How much will tickets cost?
Prices for Wimbledon 2018 have not been confirmed, but this year’s tickets ranged from £8 for a ground pass to £190 for a seat on Centre Court for the Gentleman’s Singles final.
