I'll be attending the Championships this year for the first time, and wonder if people who've been there could answer some questions for me... Are backpacks allowed into the grounds and courts? What do the spectators usually wear, e.g. shorts vs. pants? How's the weather in London in June? This will also be my first trip to London. And any other tips or suggestions would be welcome and appreciated. I've researched the Wimbledon.org site pretty thoroughly, so am looking for information that isn't contained there. I'm getting tickets thru the lottery system, so won't have to queue. I've also belatedly realized that I probably should have posted this in the Tournaments Forum, so I apologize for any confusion. Thanks.

How lucky are you ! getting tickets via the Lottery System ! I have only done that 3 times since the Lottery system started.

I went this year too. We bought our tickets on line the night before. they do it every year. the seats are right at the back but we get to watch center court play. Only the day I went Rafa was playing on court one.............drat and double drat. So close yet so far!!!
for next year we have gone for the ballot as well. so I could go twice!!! :-)
