Question about Wimbledon

If I have tickets for No.1 Court, does that automatically mean I have access to all of the grounds, or do I need a separate grounds pass? I've never been to Wimbledon before so I don't know the procedure. I entered the ballot and only just got a letter back today saying that I've got a pair of tickets to No.1 Court on the final Friday

Yes, you have access to all of the grounds.

But Court No.1 on final Friday ??? That's only doubles and Legend's matches.

You can go anywhere you like except Centre Court
not that there will be much going on except if you like juniors (probably playing QF if on schedule)

#1 tickets for Final Friday
i wouldnt pay for that

but you could get lucky and get a mens QF (or SF) with lots of rain. otherwise you'd only get OAP's playing doubles with probably 1 other doubles match.

Good luck to my favs

Also on 2nd Friday you can easily get in just queuing up (same cases just walk in), just pay for a ground pass and you'll get a much better deal.

Good luck to my favs

Thanks for the answers

Yeah I know that it's only doubles but I don't care because

1) I like doubles anyway
2) I wasn't expecting to get tickets since its now the middle of April and they said if I haven't heard from them by March, I had been unsuccessful.

So, if I just bought a grounds pass, where would I be able to go? Not the show courts right?

On the second Friday, it's very likely there'll be spare seats on No 1 Court anyway, and most of the stewards are lovely people who'll let you in. I definitely wouldn't pay the money for a No 1 Court ticket.

Courts 3-18 but you can get to see Court 2 from top of Court 3 stand (always a popular attraction as you only pay for ground pass and watch court 2 without paying for that).
Or you can get to stand on right at top of Court 2 stands (too far away IMO) to get a good view)

Not sure if they sell tickets for Court 2 on 2nd friday

Good luck to my favs

tickets dont have names on them

On the last Friday, with a ground pass, you can go anywhere, except Court 1 and Centre court, but by that stage, unless there is a really big match on court 1, it's easy enough to queue up and get a court 1 tickets if you want one. I remember one year when I went to watch Vivi & Paola in their doubles semi on Court 2, the stewards were practically *beggiing* me to buy one of the many Court 1 tickets they had left on sale! lol! The only thing is, with the weather, you can't ever be 100% sure of what will be going on on court 1 that day, and, therefore, how many people will want to queue up for tickets. It depends on whether you want to take a chance, or pay the money to make sure you have a Court 1 ticket.

Vivi & Conchita & Patricia & Paola 2004 Olympic Silver & Bronze medalists, Vivi & Anabel 2008 Olympic Silver medalists - congratulations!
