Wimbledon Ballot 2019
The process for the Wimbledon Ballot is the same as previous years with payment for the tickets completed on-line with the LTA, details outlined later in this section.
We elected for the draw to be conducted by the LTA and as this proved successful for both the Club and members it has been decided to continue this process. To be eligible to participate in the draw you must be a Senior, Patron, Student or Junior member (juniors under the age of 8 years cannot apply [LTA rules]) and:
- Must have paid your membership subscription by no later than 5pm on 5 April 2020.
- Must be a British Tennis Member and ‘opted-in’ with the LTA. To become a BTM (its free) and to access more information simply login to the LTA website at www.lta.org.uk/BritishtennisMembership.
Once tickets are assigned to a member they will receive an e-mail or letter from the LTA confirming they have won and directing them to purchase their tickets via the LTA website or by phone. They will then have 14 days from the date of assignment and notification, to make payment. This communication will also give them the opportunity to decline the offer. If the payment is not received within the deadline or the member chooses to decline, then the tickets will be re-assigned with the same stipulation on payment, i.e. payment within 14 days. Tickets will then be sent out to members by the LTA, sometime towards the end of May.
You will see that the Club has no control over collection of monies or distribution of tickets and that this lies exclusively with the individuals. The Club’s role is purely as an administrator and facilitator although guidance can and will be offered where necessary.
