Its Wimbledon time and if you were not lucky enough to get tickets in the ballot but still want to head down and enjoy the tennis here is the Elf’s tips for having a memorable day.

Weekday fun

If you can go on a weekday rather than the weekend this is the best idea! The queue will be less and the competition for tickets not quite so high.

Get there early

Aim to arrive at 5.30am at the latest!  Its sounds like the worst start to the day, but it is not so bad.  Take some sandwiches and take away coffee and don’t forget the picnic blanket.  It really isn’t so bad, promise.

Once you’re in

Enjoy!  Remember that if you do go into a court and get a seat, once you vacate this seat (even to pop to the loo) that the seat is no longer yours!  Behave, it is Wimbledon after all.  Don’t forget to head to the Hill with the afore mentioned picnic blanket, enjoy the atmosphere and fingers cross the sunshine.

Other things

More information on the website, have a look at the bag restrictions!  I got caught out with this but there is the left luggage option.

Remember your sunscreen and your umbrella!
