When do I need to get to Wimbledon Queue to see my favorite player?

Queue numbers roughly 1-500: Best place to be. Guaranteed Centre Court or you can pick Court 1 if you want.

500-1,000 range: The top section may get Centre Court considering some of the earlier fans could be picking Court 1. But, you will mostly have 2nd choice.

1,000-1,500 range: Again, the top section may get lucky with some Court 1 tickets but most will only have the option of Court 2.

1,500+ Possibly a few tickets left for Court 2 but zero chance at Centre Court or Court 1.

Every year the time gets earlier and earlier to be in the top 500 and be assured of getting Centre Court tickets (or Court 1 if you want). Some other factors are who is playing on which day and the weather conditions. Here are last year's queue timings as a guide for 2018 but I expect the crowds to be even larger especially on days Federer is playing. If you are planning to see Federer, as defending champion, walk out on Centre Court on day 1 you are going to have to arrive at the queue before it officially opens. Finally, keep in mind these times are for people camping overnight so the time to arrive is given for the day before you want to go to the tennis.

Sun July 1 8am: Queue officially opens. Last year there were already over 400 people in line for Day 1 play. Better to arrive several hours before, at 6am there were 200.
