Raincheck Scheme

As the Nature Valley Classic is played outdoors, play is subject to the weather. If, due to unfavourable weather conditions on the day for which this ticket is valid, there is less than one non-consecutive hour’s play on Centre Court, you may claim a refund to the face value of the ticket. If, due to unfavourable weather conditions on the day for which this ticket is valid, there is one hour or more but less than two hours of non-consecutive play on Centre Court, you may claim a refund of 50% of the face value of the ticket. These refund provisions do not apply where all of the play scheduled for that day for the court(s) which that ticket specifically gives access to has taken place (the latest version of the schedule, including revised schedules released on the day of play, shall apply for these purposes). In such cases, no refund will be given. The amount of play is measured using the official record of the court umpires.

In no other circumstances can money be refunded, other than as specified in the Terms and Conditions of Sale. Refunds for ticket holders who purchased their tickets in advance (internet/telephone) or onsite from the Official Tournament Box Office by credit or debit card will be processed automatically to the original cardholder. Any transaction, administration, booking and/or fulfilment fees are non-refundable.

In the event that you purchased your ticket from the onsite Official Tournament Box Office by cash you will need to send this ticket in a stamped envelope, with the name of the payee, address and full postcode in block capitals included to: LTA Raincheck, The Ticket Factory, PO Box 3348, Birmingham B40 1NT.  All refund requests must be received by 31 July 2019. No refund requests will be accepted after this date. Neither the LTA nor The Ticket Factory take responsibility for tickets lost in the post. Tickets will be refunded by cheque and sent to your registered address. All refunds will be processed in GBP, within 28 days of receipt, provided the payee address details included in the stamped envelope are correct. No claim will be made in favour of anyone other than the original purchaser and unless such claim is accompanied by this ticket.
