Keeping track of Wimbledon on your phone

Posted on 23rd June 2014

Wimbledon is underway once again and two weeks of thrills, spills and rain are sure to keep us all entertained. But we can't all be glued to the TV for a fortnight so how do we go about our daily lives while keeping up to date with all the latest action from SW19? Here's our guide to watching live matches, getting instant updates and checking the day's schedule on your phone.

The official Wimbledon app is the place to go for everything Wimbledon related over the next two weeks. From watching live games to buying Wimbledon teapots, the app lets you completely immerse yourself in the tennis.

Live video and radio

The app has Live @ Wimbledon, the All England Tennis Club's official video and radio coverage, so you can stream games live directly through the app.

Live scores

If you want to get the scores in real time but are worried about using all your mobile data on video or audio streaming, use the homepage of the official Wimbledon app. It shows live scores for every game and automatically refreshes so you won't miss a point.

If you do happen to miss a match you can get match summaries in the news section of the app. This section also gives updates on the Wimbledon Queue for those hoping to get tickets on the day and updates on player injuries.
