Before you leave

• Come prepared for all weather conditions, whether hot or cold, wet or dry

• Wear appropriate footwear (flip flops and high heels are not recommended)

• If you need to bring a bag select one that measures no more than 16” x 12” x 12” (40cm x 30cm x 30cm) and has as few compartments as possible. Wheeled bags are strongly discouraged. One bag per person. 

• Please avoid packing any of the ‘Prohibited Items’ illustrated below – they will not be allowed into the Grounds

• Allow good time to reach the All England Club – local roads and transport networks will be congested and security measures are in place prior to entering the Grounds.

• If you face challenges/difficulties in negotiating distances or hilly ground, it may be easier for you to bring a wheelchair (please note that neither the AELTC nor St John Ambulance provides these for visitors).

• If you intend to bring alcohol, do not bring bottles of spirits
