Dear All This year we have been allocated 10 pairs of Wimbledon Tickets (24 June - 7 July). We will be holding a ballot on Friday 24 May using BTCs own "randomiser" (a very sophisticated excel spreadsheet). The first name on the list will get the first choice of the tickets on offer, the second second choice and so on until all tickets have been taken. Before you all respond please note the following rules and regs, including eligibility criteria. Ballot winners will be required to sign a LTA declaration and give me their cast iron word that they have met and will meet the conditions of the ballot. Please let me know by Midnight Thursday 23 May if you would like to take part. Send an email to giving your name and a number I can easily get you on, if you are successful, to discuss your ticket options. Only 1 entry per household please folks. ARE YOU ELIGIBLE? Only 'affiliated' British Tennis Members linked to Butterfly Tennis Club are eligible to enter the ballot so please ensure you are registered and linked to the venue. Hopefully you should all have signed up so you can double check by logging into the members area of the LTA website and clicked on 'Manage Account' and the 'My Tennis Venue(s)' IMPORTANT! If you are one of the lucky few to win a pair of our tickets to this years championships I will need you to give your word that you will not resell them or transfer them to any other person. We are required to return a list of the names of members attending and provide an undertaking that the conditions of sale and distribution of tickets have been met. The LTA take a very very dim view on the resale or transfer of tickets allocated to clubs to distribute (via ballot) amongst their members. If we do not comply with this rule as a club our future requests for tickets can be refused (this has happened before to other clubs). If you are unable to attend for any reason please let me know so that those tickets can be returned to the club and our obligations can be met. GOOD LUCK!!! Alex Prince BTC Treasurer 07775 030775
