No, you can also buy tickets on the day for centre court and court 1, but are very limited. In fact, to shorten queues on the middle Saturday, this year the organisers have drastically reduced the showcourt tickets available to people queueing. Grounds tickets can ONLY be bought on the day, but queues are very long, especially in the first week.
As well as the general ballot, there's also the LTA advantage ballot, for LTA advantage members, as well as ballots for various other tennis associations, such as the BWTA. Each county association also receives an allocation of tickets, as do sponsors.
