AFC Wimbledon Ladies are a women's football team from London. The team currently competes in the FA Women's Premier League, South East Division One.

The club was founded after the ladies team representing Wimbledon F.C. decided to transfer to AFC Wimbledon, after the old club's relocation. The ladies team of Fulham F.C., known as Friends of Fulham, started it's bonds with the name Wimbledon, when they voted yes on the decision to transfer to Wimbledon F.C., as a new entity. The AFC Wimbledon Ladies are now owned by The Dons Trust.

From 2003 to 2006 it was one of the few Women's Premier League sides not to be affiliated with a club from the male Premiership or Football League.
