The Championships Qualifying Competition 2017 - Conditions of Sale

Tickets will be issued at the discretion of The All England Lawn Tennis Club (Championships) Limited (“AELTC") and its authorised agent for The Championships Qualifying Competition 2017 (“Qualifying Competition”) for The Championships 2017 (“The Championships”) on the following conditions (“Conditions”). Any person who purchases, possesses or attempts to use a ticket issued under these Conditions (“Ticket(s)”) shall be deemed to have accepted and agreed to comply with these Conditions:

1. Tickets shall not be resold or transferred (save as mentioned in condition 3 below) and shall not be purchased or obtained from or through any person, commercial agent, company or otherwise other than directly by an individual (“Applicant”) from the AELTC’s authorised agent Ticketmaster.

2. Save where offered by the Applicant for transfer in accordance with condition 3 below, any Ticket advertised or offered for sale or transfer whether by an Applicant or any third party will be void.

3. If more than one Ticket is issued to an Applicant, those Tickets may be used only by the Applicant and the person intending to accompany the Applicant to and at the Qualifying Competition. The offer and provision of such Ticket by an Applicant to such person without payment shall not contravene conditions 1 and 2 above.

4. Ticket(s) shall not be:

a) used for any promotion, advertising, fundraising, auction, raffle or any other similar commercial or non-commercial purposes;
b) used as a prize (or part of a prize) in any contest, competition, promotional game of chance, lottery or sweepstake;
c) combined with and sold or transferred as part of any package of goods or services; or
d) combined with and sold or transferred as part of any travel, accommodation or hospitality package.

5. Tickets are issued subject to Conditions of Entry established by the AELTC from time to time and the AELTC shall be entitled to refuse admission or eject from the Bank of England Sports Centre (“Grounds”), which stages the Qualifying Competition, (without refund or compensation) any Ticket holder in reasonable circumstances or any Ticket holder who is in breach of the Conditions of Entry. The AELTC shall give written reasons if requested. A copy of the full Conditions of Entry currently in force for the Qualifying Competition is available on the official website of The Championships at and is also available on application.

6. Any Ticket which is obtained, offered or advertised for sale or transfer, and/or sold or transferred in breach of these Conditions shall be void and all rights conferred or evidenced by such Ticket shall be nullified. Any person seeking to use a Ticket obtained in breach of these Conditions in order to gain or provide entry to or remain at the Qualifying Competition will be a trespasser and will be ejected without refund or compensation and may be liable to legal action.

7. Tickets remain the property of the AELTC at all times.

8. For purchases made through Ticketmaster prior to and during the Qualifying Competition, Applicants may apply for a maximum of 2 Tickets for any single day of the Qualifying Competition. Only one purchase per household per day will be accepted. All
purchases made through Ticketmaster must be made from an Applicant’s permanent address; applications from student or temporary accommodation or applications from business addresses or holiday home addresses will not be accepted. Any purchase resulting in more than the maximum permitted number of Tickets being purchased or purchases made using the same credit card or email details will be cancelled.

9. Tickets purchased through Ticketmaster can only be collected on the day of play and upon presentation of photographic proof of identity and the credit card used to make the payment.

10. Tickets issued are for the sole use of the Applicant and any person intending to accompany the Applicant in accordance with condition 3 above.

11. Tickets allocated through purchases via Ticketmaster are for unreserved seating and unreserved standing room at the Qualifying Competition. Therefore, no seating is guaranteed and seating will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

12. The entire proceeds from the sale of the Tickets (net of VAT) shall be donated by the AELTC to the AELTC’s charity, the Wimbledon Foundation. Consequently, subject to condition 13 below, it is not the AELTC’s intention to refund any Tickets after purchase.

13. In the event that rain severely disrupts play on any day of the Qualifying Competition, any affected Ticket purchaser who wishes to obtain a refund rather than donate this money to the chosen charity should return their Ticket(s) to the AELTC at PO Box 98, QR, London, SW19 5AE within 7 days of the date specified on the Ticket, quoting their full name and address. Should the AELTC agree that rain has severely affected play on the date(s) specified on the returned Ticket(s) (the AELTC acting reasonably when determining this) the AELTC shall refund the face value of the returned Ticket(s) by cheque. The AELTC shall use its reasonable endeavours to complete all such valid refund requests by 31 July 2017.

14. Subject to condition 13 above, the AELTC shall not be liable for any refund, loss (including indirect or consequential loss), damage or expense caused by cancellation, curtailment or change of schedule of The Qualifying Competition because of government action, strike, civil commotion, national disaster or other force majeure or cause beyond the reasonable control of the AELTC.

15. The AELTC reserves the right to change the programme without notice where it is reasonably necessary to do so. Tickets are for the date shown and entitle the holder to entrance on that date and not to view any particular match or round of matches or any particular player. Matches may be moved from one court to another at the sole discretion of the AELTC.

16. The Applicant assumes full and absolute responsibility for all Tickets allocated to them, including for any advertisement, offer for sale or transfer and/or sale or transfer of Tickets (or for any other breach of these Conditions), whether or not such advertisement, offer for sale or transfer and/or sale or transfer (or other breach of these Conditions) takes place with the knowledge of the Applicant.

17. By applying for and/or purchasing Tickets, Applicants warrant that they have never been refused entry to The Championships (or any other ATP, WTA or ITF sanctioned event) or the Qualifying Competition or been ejected from the premises of The Championships (or any other ATP, WTA or ITF sanctioned event) or the Qualifying Competition, and further warrant that they have never offered or advertised for sale or transfer, and/or sold or transferred tickets in breach of the AELTC’s terms and conditions. The AELTC reserves the right to cancel Tickets for any Applicant found to be in breach of these warranties.

18. Admission to the Qualifying Competition will only be authorised upon presentation of a valid Ticket and (if required by the AELTC) photographic proof of identity. Ticket holders must retain their Ticket at all times. Failure to do so may result in the Ticket holder being
evicted from the Qualifying Competition without refund or compensation. The AELTC reserves the right to refuse readmission to the Grounds once you have left the Grounds.

19. The AELTC will not replace or accept any Ticket that has been lost, stolen, forgotten, damaged, defaced or forged, or any Ticket which is unreadable or incomplete.

20. Any Applicant who advertises, offers for sale or sells Tickets (or who transfers Tickets not in accordance with these Conditions) may not be permitted to apply for or receive Tickets from the AELTC or its authorised agents (including Ticketmaster) (for a period of 5 full Qualifying Competitions and 5 full Championships from the date of such breach). Full details of the AELTC’s policy in this regard, including the Applicant’s right to appeal any prohibition in place regarding the purchase of Tickets, are available on request from the AELTC’s Ticket Manager.

21. The AELTC reserves the right to change these Conditions from time to time. Where such change materially affects the rights of the Applicant, the Applicant will have the right to a full refund.

22. Applicants have entered into these Conditions for themselves and, where more than one Ticket is issued to the Applicant, on behalf of the person accompanying them. Applicants must inform the person accompanying them of these Conditions and obtain their agreement to abide by them.

27. The AELTC grants attendees a licence to use photographs or images taken by that attendee at the Qualifying Competition for non-commercial use.
