British Tennis Membership/Wimbledon tickets ballot

A reminder to you to take out British Tennis Membership, if you have not already done so, through the British Tennis LTA website. British Tennis Membership (BTM) is FREE to Tynedale Tennis Club Members. Crucially, the Club’s allocation of Wimbledon tickets for 2015 will be based on Tynedale Tennis Club Members who are British Tennis Members who have opted in to the Wimbledon ballot on the LTA website. This stage is new this year. You must also be linked to Tynedale Tennis Club.

Signing up, linking to Tynedale Tennis Club and opting in to the Wimbledon ballot will help increase the club’s allocation of Wimbledon tickets. It does not guarantee that you will have the option to buy Wimbledon tickets, but it does entitle you to go apply for tickets from the club’s allocation next year.

There are other benefits to British Tennis Membership, besides being able to opt in for Wimbledon tickets, such as discounted prices on tickets for other events.
