The first thing I thought of was for him to sell them on ebay if he doesn't want them.
btw, how does getting tickets for wimbledon actually work - do you get given tickets
for random days based on what's available?
Yep, first thing I thought of too. Until you read all the terms on the letter they send you which is very explicit in forbidding selling on tickets.
The process is quite a long one. You basically send an application form to Wimbledon to enter into a ballot for tickets. By February, the people who got chosen in the ballot get sent a letter stating that two tickets have been allocated for you. The rubbish thing is they specify the date and court. So, I ended up being given Tuesday of the 2nd week which is WTA Quarter Finals. If I want the tickets, I just send the letter back with the cheque for payment. I think it's a poor process.
