Monday 29 June to Sunday 12 July
Two weeks of tennis, strawberries and cream, grunting and glorious weather…..we hope!
It’s the biggest event in the tennis calendar and it happens right here in London! CLINK gives you the low down on everything you need below, from getting to the event to where to watch every game on a BIG SCREEN.
VISITING THE CHAMPIONSHIPS:
Wimbledon remains one of the very few major UK sporting events where you can turn up on the day and get to watch a game. Grounds admission passes allow access to unreserved seating and standing on Courts 3-19. Or find a spot on the hill and watch the day’s big matches on a giant screen.
Ground Admission Prices start at around £20, becoming cheaper after 5PM
> Please consider carefully what you need to bring with you – BIG bags are NOT allowed.
> The grounds are open from 10.30am daily. Queuing starts at 8am, although many camp overnight to be sure to get in!
> Play is scheduled to begin on the outside courts at 11.30am.
How to get there from CLINK:
Take the Victoria Line from King’s Cross to Vauxhall (towards Brixton).
Take any Overground South West Train from Platform 8 to Wimbledon.
Take any District Line underground train to Southfields Station.
Walk up Wimbledon Park Road (following signs and the crowds!).
Journey Time: 1.5 Hours
WATCHING THE CHAMPIONSHIPS
If you haven’t got your hands on a ticket for Centre Court and you don’t fancy camping overnight to try, you needn’t be a frustrated tennis fan- we’ve found you two FREE outdoor screens to view the action, so pull up a deckchair and grab yourself a Pimms in a Tin.
Watch all the live tennis action without leaving King’s Cross. KERB street food collective will also be there Monday – Friday for your lunchtime fix.
