What is Murray Mound at Wimbledon, how much is entry, and what other names is it known by?

MURRAY MOUND is arguably the most iconic picnic venue in global sport.

Every year thousands of tennis fans turn up to back the Brits as they go for glory on the grass lawns of Wimbledon.

Spectators gather on Henman Hill, or is it Murray Mound?

When did spectators first start watching Wimbledon on the hill?

The All England Club purchased 11 acres of land to the north of Centre Court in 1967 and leased it to the New Zealand Sport and Social Club, who named it Aorangi Terrace.

‘Aorangi’ means ‘Cloud in the Sky’, which is the Maori name for Mount Cook in New Zealand.

The Kiwis moved out in 1981 and spectators have flocked to the hill ever since, but Aorangi Terrace remains its formal name.

But in the 1990s, as fans got used to enjoying/enduring Tim Henman’s valiant attempts to win the grand slam, it soon earned the name Henman Hill.

With the rise of Andy Murray and his two Wimbledon titles, the picturesque spot has reverted between that and Murray Mound.

How much does it cost to enter Murray Mound?

Access to Murray Mound is only available to those with Grounds tickets.

Spectators must pay £25 to enter the grounds, up until the Tuesday of the second week, when Grounds admission costs £20.

Grounds tickets for Men’s final day cost just £8, with reduced price admission also available from 5pm every day.

What has Murray Mound also been called?

Despite Murray’s success at Wimbledon in the past decade, many still refer to it as Henman Hill.

Yet, it has taken on many different names, mostly depending on which British star is being shown at the time.

Among those include ‘Robson Ridge’, named after Laura Robson, Heather Watson’s version ‘Heather Hill’ and former Wimbledon semi-finalist Johanna Konta helping to give it the name ‘Konta Contour’.
