Wimbledon Ballot - Final Reminder

The opportunity to opt in to the 2020 Wimbledon Ticket Ballot closes in a week. Last year about 300 of us had opted in. Last week it was 160 and it is now at 212. Hence, some of you are likely to be disappointed unless you act quickly. To participate you need British Tennis membership (free if you affiliate to Brondesbury, in the LTA's Middlesex region) and opt in each year. It can all be done online via the LTA's website but just as easily by phone (020 8487 7000).

Wimbledon Ballot 2020 - Opt In Now

If you have yet to opt into 2020 Wimbledon Ticket Ballot, please do so now as the window for doing so will close in a couple of weeks time. Moreover, the number of members opted in affects the number of pairs of tickets the club is allocated, so even if you have no wish to win a pair of tickets please can you still opt in. To do so you need to be a member of the LTA's British Tennis programme.  You can join here, for free, providing you affiliate to Brondesbury, which is in the LTA's Middlesex region. You can then opt in. However, it's probably easier to do it all on the phone (020 8487 7000) which will also enable you to opt in for other family members. 

Last year about 300 of us had opted in by the cut-off date. Currently only 160 of us have done so. 

Wimbledon Ballot 2020

If you haven't yet registered with the LTA to enable you to participate in this year's Wimbledon Ticket ballot, now's the time to do so before it's too late. You have to be a member of British Tennis (it's free, once you are affiliated to Brondesbury, the LTA's Middlesex region) and can be effected online or by calling the LTA on 020 8487 7000. You need to opt in annually so that has to be done also.  

Fabulous Quiz Evening

Matt Bamford created, in his inimatble style, another fabulous quiz evening. Questions were asked such as 'Name four-letter African countries' and 'How many halluxes do we have?' The pictures below show how much fun people had.
