TERMS & CONDITIONS
1. TICKET PRICING
Championship Tennis Tours is NOT the Official Box Office for any of the events that we sell Individual Tickets for. Our selling price and the original price on the ticket can vary due to premium costs associated with obtaining tickets in the high-demand marketplace. Prices can often be SEVERAL times the original face value as listed on the ticket. Championship Tennis Tours acts only as a broker guaranteeing delivery for Individual Tickets. All transactions are done in U.S. Dollars. We are a marketplace, we are not the official box office.
All ticket sales are final. There are NO refunds or exchanges.
3. SERVICE FEE
The service fee covers costs that allow Championship Tennis Tours to provide the widest range of available tickets and packages while giving you maximum service. This charge includes services like taking and maintaining your order on our ticketing systems, merchant card transaction fees, arranging for shipping, and/or coordinating with the box office will call. It is applied to an entire order. The CTT Service fee is non-refundable on all orders.
4. ORDER PROCESS
You will receive an e-mail immediately after placing your order confirming that we have received it. You will receive an additional email once your payment has been approved, that your order has been confirmed. Just because you have not yet received an Order Confirmation does not mean that we have not begun performing our service or already purchased the tickets you requested on your behalf. If you do not receive an order confirmation or updated status within 2 business days, please call our office to check on your order. NEVER assume your order is not being processed or has been canceled simply because you have not yet been contacted by us. Online orders placed over the weekend or after 5 PM our local time on weekdays are still processed immediately, but your confirmation may not be received until the next business day.
5. TENNIS TICKETS
Should any tennis matches be canceled or rescheduled by tournament organizers for any reason, seat privileges are lost for that day. No rainchecks will be issued. Championship Tennis Tours is not responsible for any schedule changes made by the tournament organizers. Championship Tennis Tours is not responsible for any loss or damages resulting from individual tournaments enforcing their policy regarding the transferability of tickets purchased in the secondary market, including the possibility of removal of tickets and/or denial of access to the grounds. Championship Tennis Tours guarantees only the delivery of authentic, officially issued tournament tickets. Should any tournament be canceled by organizers, or take place with limited or no fans in attendance, then you will be offered an in-store CTT Dollars credit for the full amount paid less any CTT service fees. No Cash Refunds Will Be Made. Should any tournament be postponed to new dates, your tickets are normally valid for the same sessions on the new date(s).
In addition, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, certain venues and events may have additional restrictions on entry including, without limitation, screening for symptoms of COVID-19, proof of COVID-19 vaccination, or recent negative test for COVID-19, etc. These are elements you need to check with the respective tournament you're attending as this is outside the scope of our service. If you are denied entry to a venue or event due to factors unrelated to whether your ticket is valid for entry, our buyer guarantee does NOT apply.
Unless specifically noted, all seats are together, side-by-side in the same row. For groups of more than two, we do our best to have all your tickets together, however, this is not guaranteed as seats are generally issued in pairs. If your chosen category/level which you've purchased is not available upon allocation, the next best seating category will be provided and you will be refunded for the difference in price if they are of an inferior level. Championship Tennis Tours is not responsible for any loss or damages resulting from individual tournaments enforcing policies regarding transferability of tickets including the possibility of removal of tickets and/or denial of access to the grounds.

CTT offers Ticket Weather Insurance for an additional 15% on top of your total purchase price. If a single ball is not played during the session for which you have purchased the ticket weather insurance you would be given a credit for your purchase minus service charges which you could use towards a future service with CTT. weather insurance must be purchased at the time of your order.
8. TICKET DELIVERY
Ticket delivery depending on the event can be through mobile (digital) ticketing transfer, e-tickets in pdf format sent via email, and traditional paper ticket format. Tickets are generally delivered a week before your first day of attendance at the tournament. If for reasons outside our power this is not feasible due to delays in ticket allocation by authorities and/or suppliers, your tickets will be delivered to you at least one day before your first day of attendance. For many events such as the US Open, you will be sent an email coming from our supplier which requires you to accept the transfer of the tickets being sent to you. Once this ticket transfer request has been accepted the tickets will then flow into your account on Ticketmaster, AXS Ticketing or other, depending on the event. You agree to accept the tickets being sent to you via email or digital transfer. If you refuse to “accept the transfer” of tickets sent to you via digital transfer, for whatever reason, our services are still considered delivered once you’ve been sent the ticket transfer email by our supplier.

Shipping and delivery times are subject to change and vary by destination.
