How to Watch Wimbledon in Australia This Year

There are plenty of convoluted actions you could take if you’re thirsty for some Wimbledon action. For instance, you could fly to England, cover yourself in astroturf, sneak into the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club at night, lie on the field, and hope that you never get caught. Or, if that’s not your cup of tea, you could use a VPN to try to catch the games on an illegal Lithuanian streaming service.

However, if those two options just don’t work with your schedule, then here’s some extra info:

Seriously, Where Can I Watch the Wimbledon Games?

A select number of games will be available for free on Channel Nine and through the 9Now app. This company has already confirmed that they’d be broadcasting games from the first day, and they’d be fools not to distribute the quarterfinals, semifinals, and the finales.

However, all 14 days over the tournament will be streamed on Stan Sports. This streaming service is a subsidiary of Nine. When Nine acquired the rights to distribute Wimbledon back in 2021, Nine’s CEO Hugh Marks remarked that his company had the “flexibility to develop the right mix of games which will appear on free-to-air television while ensuring all games are available to Stan Sport subscribers live and ad-free on Stan.”

So When Does the Wimbledon Tournament Kick Off?

According to the Wimbledon site, the championships start on June 27 and end on July 10. This tournament will star Ladies’ Wheelchair, Gentlemen’s Wheelchair, and Quad Wheelchair events. These types of games will include both doubles and singles matches. If you’re unsure what Quad Wheelchair games are, then Disability Sports Australia stated that this division is for “players with a permanent physical disability that results in a substantial loss of movement in one or both of their legs along with one or both of their arms.”

Wimbledon will also feature Ladies and Gents Singles, Ladies and Gents Doubles, and Mixed Doubles games. But that’s not all! As per the Wimbledon website, “2022 marks the first year of the 14&U Junior Championships, which will take place in the second week.”
