LTA - Wimbledon 2018 Ballot "Opt In" request



Each year, the LTA allocate a number of pairs of wimbledon tickets to each affiliated tennis club.

The annual procedure now is that each BTM (LTA member) must 'Opt In' to the Wimbledon Ballot.

The number of tickets that the LTA allocate to Banchory will depend on how many members have 'Opted In'.

So, we really need all our members (every individual Adult and Junior member) to be signed up with the LTA (Lite membership is free to BLTC club members), and click the button saying they want to 'Opt In' to the Wimbledon Ballot.

Doing this will not actually enter you into the Ballot, but it will only register you under "Banchory Tennis Club" as an active member 'interested' in Wimbledon tickets. 

Banchory Tennis club will arrange its own Ballot, depending on how many tickets the LTA assign to us. The number of tickets is proportional to have many people have 'Opted In'.

So, it's that time again...

We need as many as possible Banchory tenns members (all individual Adults and Juniors), to 'Opt In' to the Ballot on the LTA website.

If you are not already a British Tennis member, joining is easy and free. PLEASE become a British Tennis Member via the lins below.


To Join the LTA (British Tennis): use the 'Sign up today' option, and specify Banchory LTC as the 'Place to play'.

Choose the free "Lite Membership".


If you are already a BTM member, just log in, and you will see the blurb for "Opt In to Wimbledon Ballot":

Click the large Green "Opt In" Button.  

I know it's a faff to do, but please take time to register and opt in. It is a great benefit for the whole Banchory Tennis Club Membership, and many members look forward to the chance to attend Wimbledon.


Deadline for 'Opting in' is February 23rd.

Banchory's ticket allocation will be driven by how many have regsterred and with the LTA and "Opted In" by February 23rd.

If you don't "Opt In" (by Feb 23rd), you will not be eligible to participate in our Ballot for the tickets that are eventually allocated to Banchory Tennis Club.
Last year we were allocated 20 pairs of tickets included one pair of tickets to the men's final!
