The Guide to Debentures at Wimbledon

What is a Wimbledon Debenture?

Wimbledon Debenture tickets are simply the best seats on Centre and Number One Court. As such, they are highly sought-after. Debentures are issued every five years and give the debenture holder a ticket to each day of the Wimbledon Championships. On Centre Court there are around 2500 debenture seats for each of the 13 days of play for each Wimbledon tournament. There are 1,000 debenture seats overlooking Number One court across 10 days of tennis each year.

How to buy Wimbledon Debentures

There are two options.

Buying a Wimbledon debenture outright

The 2016-2020 Centre Court Debentures cost £50,000 each and the 2021-2025 price is £80,000 each. The funds raised are generally used to finance improvements to Wimbledon and its facilities. In the past these have included putting a roof on Centre and Number One courts.

Every five years the AELTC offers people the chance to become Debenture Holders via a ballot. However only a limited number are issued, and priority goes to existing Debenture holders, besides people very rarely give up their Debenture seats. Dowgate Capital Stockbrokers have partnered with the AELTC and run a weekly auction for those wishing to become Debenture Holders

Getting Daily Tickets

We can offer debenture tickets from just £499 + VAT per day.

What are the advantages of Debenture seats at Wimbledon?

The main advantage is that you are guaranteed a seat for every day of the tournament whether that be on Centre Court or Number One Court.

The Wimbledon debenture seating plan

Debenture seats are the best seats overlooking the show-courts and tend to be mid-way up.

On Centre Court most Debenture seats are the same level as the Royal box i.e. level two.

There is also a Debenture Holders’ car park.

Can Debenture tickets be bought and sold on individual days during Wimbledon?

Debenture tickets are freely transferable and can be bought and sold. There are no names on Debenture tickets.

However please note that ballot tickets, sponsors tickets, LTA tickets to name but a few cannot be resold. Debenture tickets are the only tickets that can. All tickets purchased through Rocket Hospitality are 100% genuine and guaranteed.

Can you get big groupings of Debenture seats?

Debenture tickets tend to come in pairs but due to our relationships with several Debenture Holders we can get groups of up to 12 seats sat together on Centre and Number One Courts.
