Wimbledon tickets 2022: can I get tickets on the day, do you queue, how to buy last minute, how much are they?

The Championships begin on Monday 27 June 2022 at the iconic Wimbledon All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

The historic Wimbledon Tennis Championships get underway today, as world’s best tennis players battle it out for the grass-court Grand Slam.

Novak Djokovic will return to defend his Men’s singles title while the Ladies’ Singles title will be up for grabs after 2021 Champion Ashleigh Barty retired earlier this year.

Iga Swiatek will be the bookies’ favourite to emerge victorious after her phenomenal success in 2021, but fellow WTA youngsters Emma Raducanu and Coco Gauff, as well as 23-Grand Slam winner Serena Williams, will all be desperate to lift the iconic plate.

Williams is just one Grand Slam away from matching Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slams, but as she has not played a professional match in a year, it would be a phenomenal feat for her to bounce back and win her record-equalling Grand Slam.

In the Men’s Singles, Djokovic will face equally fierce competition for the iconic trophy from 22 Grand Slam winner Rafael Nadal as well as recent Queen’s Club Champions winner Matteo Berrettini, who also reached the finals of Wimbledon in 2021.

Nadal is on course to complete the Calendar Slam, last achieved in 1969 by Rod Laver, after he won both the Australian Open in January and his 14th French Open title earlier in June.

Matteo Berrettini reached the 2021 Wimbledon final and will be hopeful of winning this year

Nadal and Djokovic’s joint rival Roger Federer will not be in attendance to attempt a ninth Wimbledon title after undergoing surgery on his knee.

However with such talent in the WTA and ATP tournaments, fans will be desperate to follow as much of the action as possible...

When is Wimbledon 2022?
