The number of Wimbledon tickets that will be allocated to our club will depend on the number of Thameside Tennis members who have opted-in to the ballot. As a plea to enable as many Thameside members as possible to have an opportunity to visit Wimbledon, we urge all members who haven’t yet done so to opt-in to the ballot via the LTA / British Tennis link below. This is quick, easy, and takes less than one minute to do (left-hand column if you are already a British Tennis Member, right-hand column to join first). Please make sure that you are registered as a playing member of Thameside. Even if you are not intending to visit Wimbledon yourself this summer, please opt-in for the good of the club and to give others a better chance of being able to visit.
