Security and left luggage

Comprehensive security measures will be in place for all those visiting The Championships. These will include extensive searches on entry to the Grounds and the Show Courts. Please note the restriction, which will be enforced, on the number and size of bags which may be brought into the Grounds. There will be no general left luggage facilities inside the Grounds. However, debenture holders will be able to leave small items in the debenture holders’ cloakrooms along with coats and umbrellas.

Left luggage facilities are provided outside the Grounds for items exceeding the entry criteria.

If you discover an accident, fire or suspect package contact a member of staff or steward or guard immediately (or telephone direct from a red emergency telephone). Give your name, the nature of the incident and the location. The relevant emergency services will be despatched immediately. If you are asked to evacuate a court or the Grounds, please leave by the nearest exit or as directed by uniformed stewarding staff, taking all your personal belongings with you.

Please note that, in order to ensure the effectiveness of any emergency evacuation, the AELTC regrets that spectators using wheelchairs are only permitted access to designated areas within the stands. For the same reason, large picnic hampers, coolboxes or other large items will not be allowed into the stands and should be deposited in one of the cloakrooms in the debenture areas.

Prohibited items

  • Any bag exceeding 16" x 12" x 12" (40cm x 30cm x 30cm;
  • Hard-sided items of any size;
  • Any item which may be interpreted as a potential weapon including sharp or pointed objects (e.g. knives, large corkscrews) and `personal protection' sprays;
  • Large flags (over 2' x 2'), banners, rattles, klaxons or oversized hats.

Visitors in possession of prohibited items may be refused entry or ejected from the Grounds. Prohibited items may be left in the Left Luggage facilities outside the Grounds or handed to AELTC security staff for disposal.
