Hi,

I have this urge to go to Wimbledon to see what the atmosphere is like on the day of the Ladies Final day (assuming weather is good). I was just wondering if any of you die hard queuers would know what time I would need to queue up on Ladies final day in order to get a ground pass?

My first option is to try and buy a ticket from ticket master, but if that fails (which it might) I wouldn't want to think I've wasted the price of a train ticket only to stay home and watch it.

I know it seems early in the week to be asking about this, but I have to plan ahead if I want the cheapest train tickets!

So, what time is the latest time that I could get there for? (It takes two hours for me to get to London...so, the later the better really.)

Thanks in advance for the help.

we got there at 10.30 last year and got in handy enough. If you're there between 9-10 you should be fine, the ground capacity is 33,000 so I can't imagine it being packed by then.

I have to say if you are a big fan it is well worth it.

viva la ticketmaster :woohoo:
Depending on who makes the final, I may be doing that too.

Thanks for this info. I was going to catch a train after 9am cos it's cheaper....but I can probably get there for about 10.30am. The thing is, I have to return home at a set time for a cheaper train ticket - I'm just a bit worried I might not end up getting in and have no way of watching the final or getting back home until late. LOL. But I really wanna go - decisions, decisions. Perhaps I should just buy the train ticket, attempt to do the ticket master thing...if all else fails, try a ground pass and take a little hand held TV with me! :lol:
