Advice from someone who's been there regarding getting Wimbledon tickts...

Best way to get any old Centre or Court 1 seats (esp for later in the second week) is to either buy some from overpriced ticket agencies like the ones you've already looked at or look on ****.co.uk nearer the time of the tournament. Like the US Open, the men's semis tickets are typically the most expensive. Procuring tickets this way does not typically guarantee good seats...

The best way to get good seats is to queue overnight. Unfortunately Centre Court tickets are only offered to queuers up to the second Wednesday (men's wuarterfinals). Up to the day 500 seats are reserved fro queuers for both Centre and Court 1. These are good seats - the two times I've done it I've sat in the first few rows. As for queueing overnight, it's fine if the weather's good - a street party atmosphere, lots of junk food available - lots of nice houses to wander and have a look at and wonder if you could ever afford...

Other than that you can just queue on the day and get gorund passes and tickets for the lesser show courts...

The only way to get onto Centre for the last four days is to either win the tickets in teh ballot, or buy them at huge expense - nothing left for the queuers unfortunately...
