“A tennis lover's dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

If you can't make the tournament the tour and museum is the next best thing. I did the tour the week before the tournament and saw Martina Navratilova drive by and Leyton Hewitt walked right by me with his family as we were about to view centre talk. I was quite speechless! Seeing the real trophies in the museum is a real treat in this day & age of replicas on display in museums throughout the world. If you're not into tennis then there is nothing here for you but if you're a tennis freak like me this is a life highlight.

“Queuing at Wimbledon for the tennis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Sorry, but no where else to write this review. Queuing for wimbledon tickets, rules are quite strict, stewards will direct you to que. You are given a que card, depending who is playing that day is dependant on how long the que is. Andy Murray was playing on the day we went, que was at its longest! Got there at 7am and we were number 5000+. Gates don't officially open until 9.30am, so be prepared to wait. There are toilet facilities and food vans in the park, you are allowed to leave the que for those reasons only. There are strict guidelines on bag numbers (1) and sizes, security check involves scanner and psychical bag search. Only got ground passes £20, but were offered Court one tickets, which we declined. They only accept cash.
Maybe take a picnic blanket to sit on if sitting on the hill, there are some steps otherwise it's the grass. Umbrella essential if it rains as centre court match continues to be show on large screen even if no live play else where.
It's a brilliant day out, see lots of famous faces as you walk round the grounds.
If you have tickets, get there early as there's always so much to see before going on to see the matches.
No suitable for children under 5.

“Murray, Djokovic, Tsonga Centre Court Wimbledon-----fabulous experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Myself and my daughter were at Wimbledon on monday 30th June 2014 with tickets for Centre Court. It was a dream come true for us both. If you are living in Ireland then there is a ballot that people can apply for from August check the website. This is what I done and was lucky enough to get 2 tickets for Centre Court. It was a fabulous experience as we got to see all around the grounds. The food was a bit on the pricey side but that was to be expected. The matches on the day were brilliant too with top names playing and the atmosphere was electric. I would highly recommend this day out to anyone who can get tickets. Well done and thank you Wimbledon for the memories.

“Wow !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

First time balloting for mw & my friend and she got Womens Semi final tickets - Centre Court 5 rows from the front .
We had such a good day at Wimbledon - the atmosphere is great !

The temp was in the high 20's but the heat didn't stop us from spotting Celebs in the Royal box (We was so close !) .

The matches were brilliant too !
Thanks Wimbledon :)
