FAQ: Parking Restrictions During Wimbledon Tennis Tournament

For two weeks every July, a large portion of the London populace heads to Wimbledon for one of the world’s most celebrated Tennis Tournaments. It is an amazing, vibrant time throughout the area. Spirits are high and it is a perfect example of how beautiful this city can be during the summer months.

Of course, the tournament does bring with it some logistical difficulties. One being major parking restrictions that come into play in Wimbledon and it’s surrounding areas. These restrictions do have an effect on our venue in Wimbledon/Southfields (SW19 6HW).

The roads close to this venue will not be available for parking during the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament. Note that restrictions are enforced during the tournament dates only, but signs will be posted before the tournament starts.

Our lessons will continue as normal for the two weeks during the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament.

We are unable to offer any make-ups/refunds/credits for any missed lessons.  Only Wimbledon residents with assigned parking permits are able to park in the area during the tournament. For more information about the parking restrictions in Wimbledon, and to see if you qualify, please click here.

Many of our clients are unaffected as they live in the area and walk to the venue anyway. Those who drive usually choose to take public transport. Bus 39 will drop you off at Smithwood Close – a stone’s throw from the location. Another option would be JustPark – a handy service for local residents who rent out their parking spaces.
