The biggest grass court tennis tournament in the world begins on Monday 28 June 2021 and runs until Sunday 11 July 2021. Wimbledon 2021 matches will be played on grass courts, and the live broadcast will be available worldwide. In spite of the delay to easing the Covid lockdown, Wimbledon will be able to host full capacity crowds during the men’s and women’s finals.
When is Wimbledon 2021?
Wimbledon will take place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club between 28 June and 11 July 2021.
Wimbledon is one of four Grand Slam tournaments on the tennis calendar, along with the Australian Open, French Open, and US Open.
This tournament is held specifically after the French Open and before the US Open – and is the only Grand Slam to take place on grass.
How Many spectators can attend Wimbledon?
It was welcomed by the organizers that more spectators would be allowed inside Wimbledon as part of the government’s pilot program. The start of the tournament allowed 50% ground capacity and the finals allowed full crowds.
An All England Club statement read: “We welcome the announcements from the Prime Minister and Culture Secretary that a number of events, including The Championships 2021, will be able to take place with higher spectator capacities than the current Step 3 guidance as part of the next phase of the Government’s Event Research Programme.
“We are pleased to have worked closely with the government, public health bodies, and our local authority in Merton, to confirm that, as part of this next phase of pilot events, The Championships 2021 will begin on Monday 28 June with 50 per cent capacity across the Grounds, building to full capacity crowds of 15,000 on Centre Court for the Finals weekend.
“This will enable us to fulfil our aspiration of staging the best Wimbledon possible within the current circumstances, with the health and safety of all those who make Wimbledon happen – our guests, competitors, Members, staff, media, officials, local residents, and partners – remaining our highest priority.”
Where To buy Wimbledon 2021 Tickets?
Wimbledon tickets in 2021 will be available online for the first time, with the famous queue replaced by Ticketmaster’s far more secure website.
Wimbledon tickets will be issued as of the midnight of Wednesday 16 June via the Wimbledon portal to those who have registered for the myWIMBLEDON platform before then. Last year’s championships were canceled, so this will be the first championship in two years.
The sale of tickets will then begin at 1pm on Thursday, with a limit of two tickets per person per day. It will not sell all tickets at once, but in phases to ensure that more people have the chance to purchase them. If you missed the initial deadline, you can still register and be eligible to purchase additional tickets in subsequent tranches.
