How to get
Wimbledon tickets 2015?
By Hugo Allen
I am happy to post an
article written by Guest Contributor Hugo Allen, British tennis
coach and Managing Director of Connected Clubs Limited, the "one stop solution for
sporting people" in Hemel Hempstead, England. Since the
Wimbledon Championships are just around the corner I thought
a post about how to get hold of tickets may come handy and Connected
Clubs is just the source for this kind of information.
At this time
of year most Tennis clubs have held their Wimbledon ticket ballots
and the lucky few hold those golden tickets for a great summer
of tennis. Inevitably some will have missed out and if that is
you what should you do if you are still determined to be inside
SW19 for those magic moments?
You could always
go and queue on the day. Be prepared to be up early (and to camp
overnight for centre court tickets) and to wait in line to buy
your way in. This system has to be one of the best things about
Wimbledon and allows the die hard fans to get in. However, if
you are not prepared to queue there are other ways.
Of course, you
may still get lucky in the LTA ballot if you are a British Tennis
member as this ballot includes returns but it is far from guaranteed.
So what are your
other options? Well you are probably left with three:
1) Forget Wimbledon
and go to the other great events of the grass court tennis season
such as Queen's, Eastbourne or Birmingham. All are great events
and have lower ticket prices.
2) Go as a guest.
Connected Clubs are lucky enough to have some tickets and will
be taking some clients and those passionate about tennis. Please
get in touch to see if we have a space for you.
3) Book a hospitality
option - probably the best way to enjoy Wimbledon and with a
range of packages it is less expensive than you think. We can
organise bespoke packages through the official hospitality providers
and add something extra. Connected Clubs specialize in club trips,
meeting players on the day and adding those little extra like
transport. If this sounds good to you please give us a call!
