So you’ve got tickets to the tennis at Wimbledon. Lucky you! But now, where do you park?

St Mary’s Church

St Mary’s Road, Wimbledon Village SW19 7BP.

Park securely all day from 9am to 10pm in a field next to St Mary’s Church, a 10 minute walk from the AELTC. Loos nearby. Cost £25, all proceeds given to charity. Some spaces available to book in advance for Friday July 7 to Saturday July 15; most are available on a first-come-first-served basis throughout the tournament.

Book parking next to St Mary’s Church here.

We say: well worth considering because it’s quite handy, avoids the worst of the traffic jams, and you’re doing good at the same time.

Wimbledon Park

Wimbledon Park Road, SW19 6PE.

Also known as Car Park 10, a temporary facility run jointly by Merton Council and the AA which is located opposite Woodspring Road, 5 minutes from the gates. Open 6am-10pm. Costs £30 per car (minibuses £40), but save £5 by booking online in advance – you can reserve your space any time up to 4pm on the day before you mean to park, or before 4pm on Friday for Saturday, Sunday and Monday. After 4pm, park for £10.

Book your space at Car Park 10 here.

We say: convenient place to park but it’s in the traffic chaos.

Wimbledon Park Golf Club

Home Park Road, SW19 7HT.

Also known as Car Park 6, this AA-run temporary car park is located in the grounds of Wimbledon Park Golf Club, a 5-10 minute walk from Gate 5 of the AELTC. You need to hurry if you want to reserve a spot, as pre-booking closes at midday on Friday, June 30

Book your space at Car Park 6 here.

We say: another handy option.

Residents’ Driveways

Various roads, including Albert Drive, Victoria Drive and Princes Way

Renting out your driveway as a parking spot for tennis goers is a small compensation to long-suffering residents for the bustle and congestion. If you cruise around the streets near the Championships you will see plenty of signboards in front of the bigger houses offering off-street parking. It’s not as secure as one of the official parks, but will probably be cheaper.

We say: could save you some money, and is a fallback if the official sites are full.

Park and Ride

Morden Park, London Road, Morden SM4 5QU.

Temporary, AA-run car park on parkland behind Morden Register Office, just off the A24, with a free bus service to the Championships every 15 minutes. Open 6.30am until one hour after the end of play. Transfer time is 25-30 minutes, depending on the traffic. Public loos in the sports centre 200m away. Costs £15 pre-booked or £15 cash on the day.

Book your space at Morden Park and Ride here.

We say: allow plenty of time for the shuttle bus.

Blue Badge Parking

Car Park 6, Church Rd, SW19 5AB

The AA offers a limited number of spaces for car users with disabilities in Car Park 6, on the flattest part of the grounds. Go in via a separate entry in Church Road, and the disabled parking area is behind the evacuation safe zone. Open from 6.30am until one hour after close of play. Costs £25 pre-booked or £30 on the day, and you must display your blue badge.

Book your Blue Badge parking space at Car Park 6 here.

We say: particularly convenient for ticket holders for Centre Court, No 2 Court and No 3 Court.
