Tennis for everyone




Macclesfield Tennis Club members get free British Tennis Membership (BTM) with the LTA (Lawn Tennis Association).  This includes entry into our Club’s BTM Wimbledon Ballot draw.  If you want to enter this draw, you must have opted in by the date below.  The number of Wimbledon tickets we get is directly related to the number of Opted In members.

The British Tennis Member ballot for The Championships, Wimbledon 2018 is now open and runs for 5 months to allow as many Team and Lite Members as possible to let the LTA know you are interested in being at SW19 in 2018!  So if you want to be in with a chance of experiencing all the excitement and action at the third Grand Slam of the year, now’s the time to let them know. Opt In closes on 23 February 2018.

You should have received an email from the LTA.  Hopefully you will have already selected that you wish to Opt In for Wimbledon 2018.  If you haven’t had their email, or haven’t responded so far, may we ask that you log into your BTM and select the "Opt In" option.

Opting in is simple, you just log into your account on the LTA website at and click on Opt In button on the right hand side of the screen!  Please ensure you are linked to Macclesfield Tennis Club.  The Opt In is open until 28 February 2018 for existing BTMs, but please opt in as soon as possible.  The opt in option only applies to "affiliated" adult / junior BTM members (not Child BTM members).  Many thanks in advance for doing this and also to those members who have already opted in.

The club ballot will be held in April and you will need to sign up on the sheet as usual at that time.  If you have a problem with opting in please contact either Ruth Simms, Membership Secretary and Ballot Administrator on [email protected] or Gwen Newman, Club Secretary and Ballot Administrator on [email protected]

Many thanks.
