Tour highlights
  • "Right from the beginning the atmosphere was awesome. It was not at all like your typical Wimbledon crowd full of rich people drinking Pimms and eating strawberries and cream - it was more like a football match. Everyone cheered as Jack Nicholson arrived..." - Jo, Sydney 2001

Sleep-out details will be listed here once the first round draw is announced on Friday 30 June!

Each year during Wimbledon we organise a series of sleep-outs to line up for tickets to see the Aussies in action. Check out the photos opposite for some highlights from past years, contact us to register your interest then come and join us!

What's Required

Aside from plenty of Aussie spirit, part of the deal of coming to Wimbledon with Fanatics is you must wear a Fanatics shirt at the tennis. If you've got a yellow Fanatics tour t-shirt you can wear that, otherwise let us know and we'll bring one down for you to buy (Fanatics t-shirts £15, caps £5, sweatband pairs £5). We also hire tents for £5 per person on shared basis (please advise if you require a tent). There is a left luggage service in the overnight queuing area available to store bags for the whole day while watching the tennis. Note that no flags are allowed - they'll be confiscated!

How to Register

Email to register your name and we will email you as soon as the draw & our subsequent Round 1 sleep-out date is determined. As the tournament progresses you'll need to contact us to register for our Round 2 sleep-outs and beyond.

What to Bring: Sleeping bag, sleeping mat, some snacks & drinks (or you can buy from the vendors in the park), camera, sun screen, cash to buy Fanatics merchandise and the all-important tennis ticket.

Ticket Prices

The tickets we purchase each day at Wimbledon depends upon which court the Aussie boys get drawn to play on. Usually they will likely play on a show court even in the early rounds, although the court allocation doesn't happen until the evening before each round. Everyone on our sleep-out needs to bring enough cash to cover up to the most expensive ticket.

We will try to buy everyone's ticket together for the same court after everyone has assembled at our sleep-out. Your ticket will also allow access to all general admission areas including all the outside courts:

(Centre Court, Court 1, Court 2, Court 3)

Monday 3 July (£56, £45, £41, £41)
Tuesday 4 July (£56, £45, £41, £41)
Wednesday 5 July (£73, £57, £49, £49)
Thursday 6 July (£73, £57, £49, £49)
Friday 7 July (£95, £74, £62, £62)
Saturday 8 July (£95, £74, £62, £62)
Monday 10 July (£112, £82, £68, £68)
Tuesday 11 July (£112, £82, £42, n/a)

Other General Wimbledon Info

Traditionally this fortnight's tennis is one of the hardest tickets to get to any sporting event in the world.

Because of the high cost of tickets, Fanatics do not run tours. If you are interested in travel packages they aren't listed on this website; the good thing is that with a package your tickets are guaranteed but the prices are high.

No tour companies sell tickets before the event unless they are with a package, so if you find someone on the web who does, be careful as it is impossible to get these tickets in that way unless you are breaking the by-laws of Wimbledon & every year scalped tickets get cancelled. Trust us, we have heard many stories first hand about it happening.

Traditionally the Fanatics have always been there in large numbers and the reality of Wimbledon is that tickets are almost impossible to get before it starts. Every year tickets are the subject of a ballot that closes in December the previous year and your chances are pretty slim.
