Re: Wimbledon 2018

Yes I am lucky. I have a regular source of tickets and have been able to help a few friends out again this year. The tennis is always good and the only variable is the weather which cannot be controlled, unless you are on Centre Court.

Re: Wimbledon 2018

Is Murray not playing? He's been drawn against Benoit Paire in the first round.

Yes, at this moment Murray is playing. In an interview this morning he said he would be playing if he felt like he did today but would make a final decision on Monday.

A day or two ago a message appeared on my TV screen asking me to retune in order to watch the additional coverage of Wimbledon on the BBC Red Button.  I retuned just now and got no more channels than before.

Tickets not strictly required ...

Anybody remember this (on court from about 32:00 ) ?

Re: Wimbledon 2018

Andy Murray has announced this afternoon that he has reluctantly withdrawn from Wimbledon.

 

Good weather promised all week with 28º every day.

Lucky you - enjoy it.

I would actually like to go as well, commuting to Wimbledon and back is doable in a day for me.

I like watching sport live, the first time I did it was in Stratford in 2012 watching the paralympic games.

Re: Wimbledon 2018

It is still possible to get into Wimbledon by joining the daily queue. It's a first come first served basis and tickets can be purchased for all courts on all days (not on Centre for the last 4 days). There is a very good allocation including 500 tickets daily for both Centre and No.1 courts.

 

You will find details at www.wimbledon.com

Re: Wimbledon 2018

Fair enough @artmo

Though I wouldn't travel there unless I know I have a ticket (i.e. I would definitely get in). It is not a 5 minute walk from where I live. I wonder what time you'd need to be there in the morning?

Rather reminds me when Apple released a new iPhone model (can't remember which model now). I walked past the Regent Street store in London and people were sat queuing the day before release the next morning - must admit I don't mind iPhones (as I use one) but as Meatloaf once said "I won't do that".

Crossing a line for me. Proper Crazy2

Re: Wimbledon 2018

If you are not fussed and just want entry to the ground, that will allow you to see play on all courts except the show courts, Wimbledon recommend getting there to queue a few hours before play commences. At this moment today (10.45) queue tickets are still available.

Hope this helps.

Re: Wimbledon 2018

Thanks @artmo

Was being a bit sarcastic about the queues as you can tell (though the Apple one is true).

Hmm - now I am tempted. I know of a friend who I might ask to see if he is prepared for it.

I don't like strawberries, if I got in I don't suppose I could ask for a large donner kebab with chips Tongue

Re: Wimbledon 2018

You'll have no problem with food. Everything from convenience food to high class dining. Some of the top dining rooms are members only. Prices are not cheap as you might expect.

 

A lot of people take their own picnic. Own food is permitted through the gates and you can even take alcohol in.

Doner kebab and Pimm's; is that a kind of culinary shabby chic? Smiley
