A seating map of Centre Court at Wimbledon. Where will my seats be located?

Our Debenture seats on Centre Court are located in 200-level seating, on the same level as the Royal Box. Our No. 1 Court seats are within 15 rows of the court. (Some are directly behind the player’s boxes, so get ready to be on TV!) You’ll also have access to numerous outer courts and the Debenture Holders’ Lounge, which offers a view of select outer courts from the rooftop balcony.

What are Debenture tickets?

A seating map of No. 1 Court at Wimbledon. Wimbledon issues official Debenture seats that can only be purchased in pairs once every five years. Debentures are some of the very best seats on both Centre Court and No. 1 Court. They are also the only seats that are legal to resell. So if you’re buying tickets for the July event, make sure they’re Debentures.

What’s the Debenture Holders’ Lounge like?

There is a Debenture Holders’ Lounge in both Centre Court and No. 1 Court. Each is a multi-story, air-conditioned lounge space with cloakrooms, several restaurant and bar facilities, phone charging stations, and restrooms. Free wifi and order of play sheets are also available. Don’t miss the beautiful views of the grounds from the rooftop balconies! Proper attire is required. For more information, see “Is there a dress code at Wimbledon?”

I keep hearing about your Wimbledon hospitality house; what is it?

Our hospitality house at Wimbledon is a private home, only steps from the All-England Club gates. It's where we entertain guests throughout the fortnight by hosting a daily brunch cooked by a private chef, evening cocktails, special events, and parties.

Is there a dress code at Wimbledon?

There is no official Wimbledon dress code for spectators beyond a few forbidden items: no torn jeans, running vests, dirty sneakers, or sport shorts. Though this is all that will be formally enforced, visitors to Centre Court are still expected to dress up for the more important games of the tournament in a way that is more formal than other sporting events. For tips on how to prepare, see our blog post.

Why don’t we stay in Wimbledon?

The town of Wimbledon, a suburb about eight miles from London, offers few diversions outside of tennis. It’s fun for a few drinks after a day at the All England Club, but it’s not an ideal neighborhood to stay in. We’ve chosen great hotels in a part of London only 30 minutes from Wimbledon, and much closer to Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, the V&A, the British Museum, and numerous other attractions. Plus, not to worry—we’ll escort you to our Hospitality House for your first session of tennis. It’s an easy route by London Underground.

When does play start?

Click here for a complete schedule of play. Matches will continue until the day’s schedule is completed or until dark. Our staff will let you know if any changes are made to this schedule.

What if it rains?

Luckily, all four major tournaments have roofs as of 2020. So if you have a ticket to Centre Court or No. 1 Court, you’ll only have to wait a few minutes while they close the roof. Outer courts will still be at the mercy of the weather, so some matches may be moved to the main show courts or delayed.

What time/court is Roger playing next year?

Great question and one we receive often. The draw is only released a few days before the tournament, and the order of play is only published the evening before the match. So, if there’s a specific player you’d like to see, we can usually predict which tickets you’ll need to see him or her. However, we can't know the exact time and court until the day before the match. Plus, sometimes Wimbledon will decide to schedule Roger on No. 1 rather than Centre on a whim. At Wimbledon, we do know more than for other tournaments: reigning champions traditionally start play on the first Monday.

Is airfare included?

Airfare is not included in the package pricing. We wrote a blog post on how to book your own flights, since it’s the easiest and cheapest way to get your airfare. But if you’d like us to help you with your flights, we’d be glad to do so.

Who will I meet at the Welcome Dinner?

You’ll meet lots of people. The welcome dinner is a great opportunity to get to know your fellow travelers; we’ve had many friendships (and even a few marriages) sparked on our tours. You may also meet a special tennis guest. Some of our past guests include top players Caroline Garcia, Reilly Opelka, and the Bryan Brothers, as well as Hall of Famers Tracy Austin, Fred Stolle, and many others. This is also a great time to connect with your tour hosts.
