Getting tickets for Wimbledon

I've just been on the Wimbledon site and I'm hoping to get a ticket for the general grounds. Is it possible to buy in advance at all?

Anyway, I don't know which day I want to go yet (I guess Monday or Tuesday), so it's probably best for me to just turn up and queue. This is where I want advice really. It says on the official site that for ordinary ground tickets you should be there a few hours before the gates open. I could easily get there for 8 o'clock but the train ticket is extortionate at that time of day. I would much rather get there around 11.30am. However, what would be my chances of getting in to Wimbledon at that time?

Please reply if you have experience here. Cheers.

Re: Getting tickets for Wimbledon

You have to queue up, can't buy ground passes in advance.

I would recommend getting there early; by like 9 at the latest. You'll still get in after 11:30, but not after a ridiculous number of hours... You'll probably in by like 3.

Where do you get a train from?

Re: Getting tickets for Wimbledon

its better if you come the day before into London than pay rip off train fares early morning

Cardiff. Getting there by 9 o'clock isn't difficult, it's just going to cost me an extra 30.
