    Since there's not a thread yet for this year's Wimbledon, I figure I'd make one.. Please post everything regarding 'The Championships' here!

    I got tickets for the men's semifinal (July 5th), and planning to get some ground passes before that. Planning to stay at least from Wednesday to Saturday the second week. Can anyone recommend me (relatively) cheap and safe accommodation around the area? First time visiting England.

    I actually live at SW14, 20 minutes away but have never been to Wimby. Will probably get tickets for an evening session this year.. hopefully

    I heard it's really hard to get tickets, so either you get lucky from the lottery, or you just have to line up from the night before.. Is that true?

    I was lucky enough to get allocation from my Australian Open membership..

    Much appreciated! It's great to get some insights from locals, as I have never been to UK before..
