Who has tennis tickets to the 2012 London Olympics?!

Sorry if there already has been a thread on this, but just wondering who else have tickets to next year's Olympics at Wimbledon! I managed to snag some tickets at the last minute for R1, R2, R3 and QFs, and especially excited about the QF ticket!

Lucky you! All we got was tickets for swimming! And that event was bottom of my wish list! Tennis, Diving and Gymnastics were my tops, but it wasn't to be. Soccer was the least subscribed!

I think you'll find your tickets will be very valuable on the black Market - temptation may call!

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.


Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.

Indeed lucky you. I applied for a ton of tennis tickets, but all I got was beach bloody volleyball!


It's later than you think...

Re: Who has tennis tickets to the 2012 London Olympics?!

I live in London, applied for loads of tickets and got....NOTHING (No tennis, no athletics, nothing...)

Also have 9 other friends from the forum (all live in UK/London) and no tickets at all for any of them either....

How did you manage to get so many tennis tickets? What Olympic Federation did you buy through?

Mine were from an authorised reseller (Kingdom Sports Group). At first I couldn't get any tennis tickets too, all I managed to get were volleyball, badminton and synchronised swimming. But they had a lottery for some tickets were cancelled/not paid for, and that's how I got mine. My ticket prices are marked up by 20% though, but I think it's worth the price.

Re: Who has tennis tickets to the 2012 London Olympics?!

I applied for loads of sessions but didn't get any tennis tickets, just one pair for athletics. I should count myself lucky though, I don't know anyone else who got any at all. There is still a chance in the resale next year too.

RIP Bally - You will be sorely missed

That's my last hope. I always fail at the Wimbledon ballot as well, so no doubt I'll be up early to get tickets the first minute they go on resale

Re: Who has tennis tickets to the 2012 London Olympics?!

Thought it was a ridiculous way of doing it - like I want to apply for tickets and then end up watching archery or synchronised swimming - I'll stick to Eastbourne, Wimbly and Montreal next year.

Wow, I thought it would be easier to get tickets if you're in the UK, but apparently not. Looks like I am indeed very lucky.
