If you’ve not been lucky enough to bag yourself a ticket for this year’s Wimbledon, then not to worry – we’ve got you covered!
Wimbledon is one of the biggest annual events in South West London, so it is important that you get a front row seat, whether that is a first-hand view or on screen at one of Wimbledon’s many pubs and bars. Here are some of the best places in Wimbledon to watch the matches.

Located in the heart of Wimbledon Village, the Dog & Fox pub is the self-proclaimed place to be during Wimbledon 2017. Get together with friends and relish in the buzzing atmosphere of this boutique style venue or soak up the sunshine in their beer garden as they broadcast the tennis on screen. There’ll also be hosting live music, so you can keep the party going well after the matches finish. Info here.
Love Wimbledon’s Big Screen is back this summer to show the Wimbledon Championships. No costs and no queues; pull up a deckchair, grab a bite to eat and soak up the sun whilst watching the world’s tennis giants battle it out on Centre Court. More info can be found here.
If you simply can’t accept that you’re without a ticket, there is always the opportunity to queue up and grab one on the day. This method, however, is not without its downside – you may need to queue up the night before if you want a good chance of succeeding to get a ticket for one of the show courts.You can only grab one ticket each, and only cash payments are accepted, but this certainly gives those without a ticket a glimmer of hope to live the full Wimbledon 2017 experience. More info here.
Henman Hill (AKA Murray Mound)
Head to Henman Hill to catch all of the action from Wimbledon 2017as it happens. With strawberries and cream in tow, you’re guaranteed to get as close to the full viewing experience as possible via the giant television screen provided. Whether you’re supporting Williams, Murray or Nadal, you’re sure to be high on community spirit. Join the queue for ground tickets and get their early – but it sure is worth it!
Wimbledon 2017 commences on Monday 3 July before wrapping up on Sunday 16 July. It looks set to be an exciting Tennis season!
