WIMBLEDON TICKETS 2018 AND BRITISH TENNIS: If you want tickets through the Club in 2018, it is essential that you are a member of British Tennis on Mayfield Lawn Tennis Club’s list and have also opted in again to the Wimbledon Ballot 2018, (which is done by going to your members’ area on the L.T.A. website). It is emphasised that British Tennis members need to opt in each year to be eligible to enter the Club Ballot. The deadline is 23rd February 2018; after that date only those new to British Tennis can opt in. Any opted in British Tennis member (9 years and over) can enter the Club ballot. British Tennis members may enter individually, and so the more eligible members of a family that enter, the more chance that family has of getting tickets. The number of Wimbledon tickets the Club gets allocated depends on the number of eligible British Tennis members it has, who have also opted in to the Wimbledon ballot by 23rd February 2018. So please join now and opt in before then on www.lta.org.uk/BritishTennisMembership or ring 0208 487 7000.
