• You opted in to the LTA ballot before the 17th February this year

Successful ballot winners will choose their tickets at the ballot on 1st May. If you are not going to be at the ballot you need to send an email to Julia Faherty – with your ticket selection, in order of preference.

Once tickets have been purchased they cannot be transferred. Ballot winners must use the tickets for themselves with a guest. The guest can be of the successful member’s choosing and does not have to be a BTM, or a member of Highgate, although we would prefer that the opportunity is given to club members wherever possible.
