Details of the ballot to follow…………..
The Wimbledon tickets ballot was carried out at 7pm yesterday evening under the scrutiny of our esteemed club secretary. (That’s me). All eligible members names were printed, folded 3 times, and placed into the nominated ballot receptacle (my hat). Names were then drawn out of the hat, one at a time, and the order was recorded. The choice of remaining available tickets was then offered to members in the order in which they were drawn from the hat.
This year the three pairs of tickets have been claimed by:
- Jonathan Shapland
- Eddie Green
- John Grimley
Special thanks to my nominated drawmaster: Lydia Meek (aged 9), and the ballot witnesses: James Wheatley (aged 15) and Annette Meek (aged XXX).
