UK Ballot for The Championships 2016

About the Ballot

The Public Ballot, introduced in 1924, has always been substantially oversubscribed. Entry does not automatically entitle applicants to tickets for Wimbledon, but to a place in the draw for tickets. It is not possible to request tickets for specific days or courts, as the day and court offered are chosen randomly by a computerised selection process.

The AELTC Public Ballot for 2016

 UK applicants and Wheelchair users.

- The closing date for receipt of all completed ballot applications was 31 December 2015.

- Overseas applicants: please click here for further details. Successful applicants will be notified from February 2016 onwards. Returned or declined tickets are continually re-balloted so, if you are unsuccessful in the main ballot, your application will be considered in subsequent, smaller ballots.
- Applying for the ballot does not automatically entitle an applicant to tickets which are allocated at random by computer to successful applicants. It is not possible to request tickets for specific days or courts, as the day and court offered are also chosen randomly by the computer selection process.

- There will be ballots taking place from February 2016 until the week before The Championships. If you are successful, you will be informed by post from February 2016 until June 2016.
- Successful applicants will be able to pay for their tickets by credit/debit card through a secure website or by sending us a cheque.
- Ticket despatch begins in the second week of May 2016, continuing into June 2016.
