Best tennis Grand Slam Jul 02, 2011
The best way to get tickets is to queue - go early the day of or even camp out the night before. Once in the grounds, you can queue again for resell tickets - people who leave the grounds early can leave their tickets for others. The resale price is only 10 pounds and goes to charity.

Definately worth gonig to see May 29, 2011
The atmosphere here is great. Make sure you get there early as the queue can be really long. You can get into court 19 which is the 4th biggest court if you queue. You will need seperate tickets for the big courts but you might get lucky if you queue very very early. (some people camp the night before) But outside the courts is where the great atmosphere is at. Definately worth experiencing - especially if the sun is shining! It's best to go the first few days of the tournaments as you will see more players you may know on the smaller courts

If you're around London in late June/early July, you have to go to Wimbledon. This is one of the few UK sporting events where you can simply walk up in line the day of the event and get tickets to see some amazing tennis. I went on the 5th day which was mostly 3rd round action and saw greats like David Nalbandian, Amelie Mauresmo, Kim Clijsters, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Tommy Haas, Tomas Berdych, James Blake, Roger Federer, and Lleyton Hewitt. I bought a grounds pass for 17 pounds, and it was totally worth it. The All England Lawn and Tennis Club is situated in a nice part of southwest London, with a moderate tube ride from Central London. The 'stewards' of Wimbledon were sooo friendly and helpful. One generally felt appreciated for being there. With 20 courts to choose from, you can see great tennis anywhere all day. The crowded sections were, of course, the good matches/players, but you could easily go somewhere and sit down and watch some tennis being played right next to you. This was my first professional tennis experience and I strongly recommend it to anyone!

Yeah very lucky, my parents arrived about 11am on Friday 30th looking to get general admission passes, but after asking some of the staff decided a minimum 5 hour wait for tickets wasn't their scene. On their way back to the tube they overheard a number of "regulars" commenting most people won't get in till the night session. Also, people were already setting up camp waiting for the next day tickets (about 500 people). Well done on getting in!

OK, you were lucky! I think it was because you went on the world cup time. I was there last year, and there was a quoue of hundreds of people (if not more). It was the longest quoue I've ever seen in my life, going all the way from the ticket booth, across the bridge, and into the car park. It was crazy. So people beware it next year ;)
