When is Wimbledon 2018?
This year’s Championships are held from Monday 2nd July – Sunday 15th July, with the women’s final taking place on 14th July followed by the men’s final on 15th July. Qualifying was held at the Bank of England Club from Monday 25th June – Thursday 28th June with Brit Dan Evans, who recently served a year-long drugs ban, missing out on a place in the main draw. (More details on the players who did make it through below).
The men’s and women’s (or gentlemen’s and ladies’, in Wimbledon speak) tournaments begin on 2nd July, with the doubles starting on 4th July and mixed doubles from 5th July. The juniors, wheelchair and invitational matches commence on Saturday 7th July.
Here is a full list of which matches take place when.
How can I watch Wimbledon 2018 on TV and online?
Wimbledon 2018 will as usual be screened by the BBC who are showing the tournament in Ultra HD for the first time. Sue Barker is back, fronting a team presenting live matches during the day on BBC1 and BBC2 from 11:30am (11am on day one) with commentators including Andrew Castle and John Inverdale. There will also be insight from tennis legends including John McEnroe, Martina Navratilova, Boris Becker, Billie Jean King, Tracy Austin, Pat Cash, Kim Clijsters and Tim Henman (read more about Tim’s top male players to watch).
The BBC will also broadcast an evening round-up – Today at Wimbledon – hosted by Clare Balding on BBC2, reflecting on the day’s best action.
As for online, all Centre Court matches will be available in Ultra HD on BBC iPlayer, with up to 16 live HD streams also available on BBC Sport online, BBC iPlayer and via the Red Button.
But there will be one crucial difference this year. The cameras that capture all the action have been taken in-house, as of 2018, with the All England Club, rather than the BBC, choosing the footage to be shown on our TV screens for the first time.
If you have Eurosport, you can also watch a highlights package, airing daily from 10-11:30pm, with the broadcaster owning exclusive rights to countries like Belgium, Russia, the Netherlands and Sweden.
If you don’t have Eurosport, Amazon Prime subscribers can watch via Amazon Channels.
And finally, Wimbledon nuts can tune into YouTube where they will find a live stream throughout the fortnight on the Wimbledon YouTube channel, featuring interviews, live snippets of play, match analysis and behind-the-scenes action.
How do I get tickets to Wimbledon?
This is a tricky one. The vast majority of tickets for Centre Court, No.1 Court, No.2 Court and No.3 Court are distributed via a public ballot which is open from 1st September to 31st December. Prices range from £25 to £210. If you were successful in the ballot, you would have heard back before the end of February 2018. Click here for more information and details of how to apply for tickets next year.
There are two alternative to ballot tickets: firstly, each day Ticketmaster sells several hundred tickets online for the following day’s play – you’ll need to register at MyWimbledon to be the first to get details. And secondly, there’s the Queue. Here you can line up for a limited allocation of tickets for Centre Court, No.1 Court, No.2 Court and grounds passes. Access to Wimbledon via the Queue often involves an early start – and sometimes an overnight camp.
