Wimbledon Ballot 2020 - Basildon Tennis Club

posted 13 Jan 2020, 10:22 by Lauren Bettaney

Dear Basildon Tennis Club Members

Hopefully by now you will have received an email from the LTA about 
OPTING IN for this year's Wimbledon Ballot. The deadline is Friday 14th  February 2020.

Our allocation of tickets is dependent on the number of members who opt in. Last year our response was fantastic and we were allocated 11 pairs of tickets, 2 more pairs than 2019 and our most successful number yet!


Please OPT IN even if you do not want to be entered into the Ballot as it will be supporting Basildon Club and the other members. All paid up members from 11 years upwards are eligible to enter. Apologies to any parent who has been sent this email and whose child is under 11.

Failure to register means that the LTA will not allow you to take part in the Basildon ticket ballot in 2020. It is also a requirement to have paid your Basildon Club subscription by 1st April 2020 in order to have entry into the ballot.

Below are easy directions to register. Make sure that you have put Basildon Tennis Club RG8 8NU as your club and not Basildon in Essex.


Please let me know if you have not received the OPT IN email from the LTA and I will try to resolve any problems.

Best wishes

Subscription Renewal 2020

It is that time again to renew your membership of the tennis club. We hope that you have 
enjoyed your tennis over the last year, and benefited from the playing and coaching 
opportunities on offer. 

In particular I note that the member fee will be more than covered by the savings you make 
on coaching sessions when you access the discounted member rates. And that is before 
the access to the Wimbledon tickets draw – provided of course you pay by the end of March. 

The membership rates for 2020 are as below. If you have previously been a member, 
please email the treasurer with your subscription details and he will 
update the records. If you are a new member, please complete the membership form 

Family @ £110 
Adult @ £45 
Joint (2 adults at same address) @ £80
Senior @ £40 
Student (in full time study) @ £20 
Intermediate (aged 19 – 24) @ £30 
Junior (age 11 – 18) @ £20 
Mini- junior (age under 10) @ £15 

Please remit the fee to the club by bank transfer by 1 April to Basildon Tennis Club - Sort 
Code 30-96- 96 Account No. 56885960, and please add your surname and
