Wimbledon 2023 tickets: How to book your seat on Centre Court for next year’s tournament

Nearly 15,000 tennis fans will be lucky enough to enjoy a seat on Centre Court on Sunday when Novak Djokovic takes on Nick Kyrgios in the men’s final on Centre Court.

Many of them will have waited nearly three years for their chance, having purchased tickets for the finale of the 2020 tournament. That event of course, was famously scuppered by Covid-19, whilst the following year the maximum capacity was reduced.

This summer has welcomed the return of fans to SW19 though. And whilst numbers were slightly down in comparison to other years, perhaps due to the continuing effect of Covid, 114,573 people visited the Championships over the first three days alone.

But for many tennis lovers now, no sooner will Djokovic or Kyrgios have touched the coveted trophy than plans will be made to attend in 2023. And supporters will welcome the return of the Wimbledon Public Ballot for the next edition, with one what needed this year due to 2020 tickets still being valid.

Next time around the tournament will run from June 26 until July 9, 2023. And those interested can find out when the ballot opens by joining myWIMBLEDON, visiting the Consent and Preferences area of the website, and selecting they are interested in ‘Tickets and Ballots’.

It won’t guarantee entry of course, with requests always exceeding the amount of tickets available. The ballot is also only open for a limited time and must be entered by December 30, 2022.

From February 2023, successful entrants will be offered two tickets per person, but there won’t be any time to weigh up any decisions. The tickets need to be published pretty much immediately to ensure they’re secured.

But that does mean that those not successful in the ballot first time around might get another chance. Many are able to purchase a ticket through returns.

And for those who don’t mind royally treating themselves, tickets will be available via Keith Prowse, which is the exclusive official hospitality partner of The Championships. To put it mildly though, the option doesn’t come cheap, with prices starting at £1,495 per person.

But for latecomers, or those who make a last minute decision to head to the famous grass-court event, there will still be hope. Fans will still be able to get tickets the old fashioned way – via the infamous Wimbledon queue.

There won’t be any chance of a lie-in for those taking that route though. To be in with a chance of getting a in, even if only to see outside courts, means being at the gates before breakfast, with it not uncommon for fanatics to camp outside the night before.

Last but not least, is the option of simply chancing an arm. Many spectators will hover outside towards the end of the day, hoping that early goers will hand over tickets as they leave and allow them to catch the tail-end of the day’s action.
