Tennis Car Parking

Since the 1950s, St Mary's has offered car parking (for about 140 cars daily) in the field adjacent to its churchyard, for people attending the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. We always look forward to welcoming previous users, and others whom we have not met before.

Funds raised from the parking will be used in two ways. Firstly, a minimum of 10% of the receipts will be directly donated to the local, national and international charities supported by St Mary's as defined in our Mission Action Plan.

The balance will be added to the resources of St Mary's Church and will help to sustain the very significant contribution it makes to the Diocese of Southwark.

For the Championships from 27 June to 10 July, the price for one day is £30 (payable by cash or card). The gate opens at 9:00am. Up to 50 spaces are made available every day for prebooking/prepayment online for £32, but even so there is usually space until 11:15am in the first week. During the second week, we usually have space until noon. The Church's postcode is SW19 7BP, and the entrance to the field is on St Mary's Road. Toilets are available in the church hall. The gate is locked at 10:00pm unless there is late play, when it will remain open until 45 minutes after the official close of play. Later release can be arranged by calling the number on the ticket issued on arrival, however there may be a charge for this. The ticket should be displayed in the car. Minibuses and motorbikes can be accommodated, but different charges apply. It is possible to leave a car overnight, provided this is arranged on arrival, paying for both days and the night (£15) at the time of arrival. Sleeping in cars overnight is not permitted.

All parking is at drivers' and owners' own risk. The volunteer parking team will be on hand to ensure space is used to best effect, maintaining sufficient access. To the extent permitted by law, neither the Rector, the Churchwardens, the Parochial Church Council of St Mary's nor any of their servants or agents shall be liable for any loss or damage to, or theft from any vehicle parked on their land, or for the safety or injury to drivers or pedestrians.
