How to enter the Wimbledon Public Ballot for tickets to the 2024 championship?

The Wimbledon Public Ballot was first launched in 1924 and "gives everyone an equal opportunity to secure tickets for The Championships". 

According to the Wimbledon website, all applications are entered into a draw and successful applicants are chosen at random.

The Wimbledon Public Ballot will open in mid-September. 

You can only enter the public ballot by signing up to myWimbledon, which will also send you a notification when the ballot is open.

The Wimbledon website adds: "Entering the ballot does not mean you are guaranteed tickets and it is also not possible to request tickets for specific days or courts.

"Those who are successful will be notified via email, so please ensure your preferences are set accordingly."

If you already have a myWimbledon account, it is recommended you check your settings to ensure you have opted in to receive email communications regarding Tickets and Ballots.

Describing "The Queue", the Wimbledon website says: "Wimbledon remains one of the very few major sporting events where you can buy premium tickets on the day of play.

"For many, The Queue at The Championships is as much a part of the Wimbledon experience as the tennis itself.

"Each day a large Queue forms to buy either one of the limited Show Court tickets available, or a Grounds ticket. 

"Tickets are sold on a best available, one per person queuing basis and are non-transferable."

For this year's event, each day 500 tickets for Centre Court (excluding last four days), No.1 Court, and No.2 Court were sold to people in the Queue. 

While there were also ground passes available which enables you access to all courts including No.3 Court, Court 12 and Court 18, as well as The Hill.
