Wimbledon Ballot 2019 - please opt in

14 Feb 2019

Dear Member

I believe you have not yet opted into the 2019 Wimbledon Ballot.   There is just one week left before the deadline of Friday 22nd February.

You may be aware that the ticket allocation assigned to tennis clubs for the Wimbledon ballot relies on members opting in to the LTA draw.  Opting in determines how many tickets Hale Gardens receives from the LTA for the Wimbledon draw at the Club. 

Opting is a very simple process but can only be done online via members' BTM login - and it has to be done by members each year.  We urge all members to opt in as the more of us that do, the more tickets we will received for the draw.  Please opt in, even if you do not wish to go to Wimbledon! If you’re a member of more than one venue, you only need to “Opt In” once but you need to ensure Hale Gardens is listed as one of your registered venues. 

Before you can opt in, you need to ensure you have registered for “LITE” British Tennis Membership.  This is free and another simple process.

Four simple steps to opt in:        

1.     go to LTA website:  www.lta.org.uk

2.     login using your user name and password

3.     Search for Wimbledon Ballot (it may be on the home age)

4.     click on the “opt in” tab.

Finally, it is possible that you are the contact point for other members of your family, who have also not yet opted in.  If that is the case, please can I ask you to ensure they also opt in.  

If you have any queries about this email or the process you need to follow, please contact me, Catherine Goodyer, Club Secretary on 01425 617132 or 07802 432975 and I will be pleased to help you.

My email address is catherine@goodyer.org

With kind regards and many thanks in advance for making some time to opt in.
