The All England Lawn Tennis Club has announced the decision to cancel The Championships Wimbledon, 2020, due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
We would therefore like to advise that all LTA 2020 Ballots have now been cancelled and access to run a ballot has now been removed due to the cancellation of The Championships.
New Ballots will be held in 2021, with all those who had been allocated tickets to date in LTA Ballots during 2020 receiving a refund and their tickets being made void.
Thank you for your continued support, particularly during this unprecedented time. We wish everyone the best of luck for next year’s ballot, but in the meantime, please visit our Help & FAQ pages for more information.
It is also with deep regret that our summer grass court tournaments and the British Open Wheelchair Tennis Championships have been cancelled for 2020.
