You see i don't see that as a bad thing personally cos you could watch the men's final on Henman Hill then go to court 1 for some live tennis. If it was me i would have accepted.

Re: Wimbledon public Ballot 2012

Apparently there's another round of the ballot early next week. I need to stop getting my hopes up

I find Henman hill a bit of a nightmare, having to climb over a sea of people to find somewhere to sit, and even then your view is blocked by one thing or another.

Re: Wimbledon public Ballot 2012

How does this ballot work?

You can participate in the ballot and if you're lucky you are able to buy tickets for a random day and a random court?

Is this the only way to get tickets for Wimbledon?

I have my fingers crossed for you. Let us know if you have any luck

I like it on there when Andy Murray plays its a great atmosphere same as when Henman used to play. But yeah you need to get your space early or its a nightmare.

Re: Public Ballot

An unusual envelope came in the post today. I was excited for a second...until I realised it was my council tax bill
