Wimbledon to stick with more ‘normal’ ticketing arrangements for 2022

The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) which organises the Wimbledon Championships, has released information on ticketing arrangements for 2022, following the “unusual” system in 2021. 

In a statement the AELTC said: “Following the unusual ticketing provisions for 2021, we are pleased to confirm a return to more normal ticketing arrangements for 2022.” 

The Wimbledon organiser also confirmed that there will not be a public ballot for the tournament in 2022. Instead, guests that were successful in the 2020 Wimbledon Public Ballot and took up their ticket offer will be offered tickets for the same day and court in 2022. 

Those particular ticket holders will hear from the AELTC early next year. 

However, fans will still be able to register to receive access to any ballot returns, with plans for this to be communicated in due course. 

The Queue will also return for 2022 with the opportunity for fans to grab an on-day sale, as well as the return of the ticket resale. 

The statement added: “Ticket integrity will continue to be of the utmost importance, with strictly one pair of tickets available per household.” 

The AELTC also noted that Debenture tickets will continue to be the only official source for secondary market tickets. 

In 2022, Wimbledon will see the fourth round spread across two days with play happening on Middle Sunday for the first time. The tournament will also be celebrating its 135th edition. 

Alongside the ticketing announcement, the AELTC announced that it had submitted the planning application for its Wimbledon Park project.
