I feel a little bad about not writing about this earlier, but to be honest, I don't want that many people entering because I'M TRYING TO WIN DA TICKETS. But that's not a particularly good reason, so here you go:
It's the 125th anniversary of the Championships at Wimbledon this year, so the fancy fancies are hell-bent on giving away tickets to the tournament left and right.
So basically, if you're thinking about coming to London for Wimby (I'll buy you a Pimm's if you do!) but the only thing stopping you is that whole "I don't have a ticket and I sure as hell ain't queueing like an idiot" thing, here's how you can win them:
- On Wimbledon.com: There are a series of weekly competitions to win tickets including men's finals, ladies finals, etc. Visit Wimbledon.com and solve the clue to find a page on the site. On that page, you'll see an entry panel, click the panel, answer the question, and hey presto, you're in. Each competition is open for just 24 hours so you need to get in quick! #thatswhatshesaid
- Facebook: All you need to do is "Like" the Wimbledon Facebook page by the end of May (which, if you're a tennis fan and you haven't already "Liked" all four Slam pages, I don't even know what to say to you), and you can win one of six pairs of tickets to the men's quarter-finals. Wimbledon, stodgy as they are, actually do get the social media thing so if you already "like" the page you'll be entered automatically.
So there you go. Give it a whirl. And if you win tickets let me know so I can throw things at you from the queue.
