Wimbledon Court !
We were lucky enough to get Wimbledon tickets for one day during the 2004 championships.
It was always one of those things that I hoped to do whilst living in London, and I was not disappointed.
The atmosphere was fantastic, and although we did not have tickets to Centre Court, we had front row, base line tickets on Court 1. We saw mens & womens doubles quarter finals, and were excited to see Martina Navratilova win her doubles game.
Equipment: To get the tickets we had to enter a ballot, via the wimbledon website. Entries had to be submitted before the end of 2003.
We were sent a letter with details of the day and seats that had been selected for us, and then we could decide if we wanted to buy the tickets, which of course we did!!
Address: Wimbledon Park Road, Southfields
Directions: Nearest Tube: Southfields - the tournament is 10 minutes walk from here, or a short bus ride
