2016 Wimbledon tickets
There are 4 ways to get tickets
- The Ballot
Date for postal ballet applications for 2016 championships is over now. However, if you wish to keep an eye on the ballot tickets for 2017 championship, then you may want to keep a reminder for yourself sometime in October 2016.
2. The Queue
Wimbledon is one of those special tournaments where people can still buy tickets for the day by queueing up on the day. e.g. if you want to see on a Monday, typically you should be in the queue really early, say 5 am to be able to get a ticket at sometime during the day. Note that there are fans who queue up overnight, so its your call. I went twice and was in the queue since 6 am and got inside the courts sometime around 1 pm.
3. Buy tickets on Ticketmaster who is the official agent for the tournament.

Wimbledon tickets from abroad
Since you are late for the postal ballot this year, best way to buy tickets will be to go and stand in the queue really early around 4 am in the morning. That should be good enough to get you a ticket. Another tip is to go there on a weekday instead of the first Saturday as many people do. There is generally more crowd on a Saturday.
