Refunds/Returned Tickets

In the event that an organisation has purchased tickets and are then unable to use any tickets issued to them, they must request a refund from the LTA. If through a Schools Wimbledon ticket offer, the tickets have been assigned as a pack of tickets, we will only be able to process a refund on all tickets purchased as part of the offer. The LTA cannot issue a refund on individual pairs. Whilst the LTA will  accept and refund the price (face value) of such tickets, ALL tickets must be returned to the LTA at least 24 hours before the date for which such tickets are valid, in order to receive the refund.
