British Tennis Team Member savours Big Apple trip of a lifetime

Andrew Walker was served the trip of a lifetime after entering a prize draw available for all British Tennis Team Members.

Bathgate-based Andrew upgraded to Team Membership in May, when the new British Tennis Membership was launched. Little did he know, just three months later he’d be jetting off to New York with his wife Elaine to witness World No.1 and eventual champion Rafael Nadal at the US Open.

Sign up to British Tennis Team Membership and you could be in with a shot at winning your own once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Andrew and his wife Elaine travelled from Scotland to New York for three nights, staying at the five-star JW Marriott Essex House – which to their delight, hosted many of the world’s best players...

“Having seen Pliskova playing on the Tuesday morning we were a bit surprised to see her walk past us in the lobby of the hotel that night!"

Their prize included tickets to Arthur Ashe Stadium for two days, where they were treated to performances from Garbine Muguruza, Karolina Pliskova, Marin Cilic, Angelique Kerber and Rafa Nadal.

We had never seen Nadal before, so that was a special one to tick off the list... and quite a venue to see him in.

On top of their time at Flushing Meadows, Andrew and Elaine also managed to take in the city’s spectacular sights: “We had a walk around Central Park, walked along 5th Avenue, Times Square, Rockefeller Centre and also caught a ride in a yellow cab!”

Reflecting on their trip, Andrew said: “The US Open always looked like a special one to visit and thanks to a bit of luck from the competition we got there this year and it never disappointed!”

Andrew and Elaine’s trip was supported by Grand Slam Tennis Tours (GSTT) – a British Tennis Membership benefit supplier. GSTT provides tailor-made trips for fans to travel across the globe while taking in world-class tennis. British Tennis Team Members are able to take advantage of exclusive discounted packages to select events, saving up to £700. Next on the horizon are the Australian Open and Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters.

British Tennis Team Membership brings fans closer to the game and all profits generated from membership fees are re-invested to grow grassroots tennis. In return, Team Members start receiving benefits straight away, all from as little as £10 a year for juniors and £20 for adults.

From subscription to exclusive members’ digital magazine #ACE and monthly tennis.net flash sales to discounts with GSTT and access to money-can’t-buy prizes like Andrew’s, there’s no better time to join the Team!
