The All England Lawn Tennis Club on Tuesday announced the opening of the Wimbledon Public Ballot for The Championships 2024, to be staged 1-14 July. First launched in 1924 and celebrating its centenary next year, the Ballot is intended to be the fairest means of obtaining tickets for The Championships.
Applications for the Wimbledon Public Ballot will be accepted during a 15-day period from Tuesday 26 September, until 23.59 British Summer Time (BST) on Tuesday 10 October. All prospective applicants must register for a free myWIMBLEDON account in order to be eligible to enter the Ballot. Further information and the link to enter are available here.
The Wimbledon Public Ballot attracted record levels of applications to attend The Championships 2023, with renewed interest from fans internationally, led by USA, Ireland, Italy, and Germany. This year’s Championships saw a record attendance declared with 532,651 guests through the gates during the Fortnight.
To mark the centenary milestone, the All England Club has released a set of archive images and video content of the Wimbledon Public Ballot and ticketing operation from the last 100 years, reflecting the Club’s unique approach to ticketing the traditionally popular event. These assets can be downloaded here.
Sally Bolton, Chief Executive of the All England Club, commented: “While so much about The Championships has evolved during the last 100 years, the tradition of holding the Wimbledon Public Ballot for tickets endures and remains a unique element of our approach to ticketing. Following record interest this year, it’s now time to look ahead to The Championships 2024 and we encourage all fans to ensure they enter the Ballot by Tuesday 10 October to be in with a chance of joining us here at SW19 next year.”
