4. How to Enter:
To enter the Contest, during the Promotion Period the Entrant Facility must register and host a Wilson World Demo Tour Event in the Territories at which: (a) a Wilson sales representative or ambassador must be in attendance, and (b) the Wilson Ultra® Around the World Challenge (as described below) is performed.
An Entrant Facility can register to host a World Demo Tour Event online at: wdt.wilson.com while supplies last. Event dates and times are limited.
The Wilson Ultra® Around the World Challenge:
HOW IT WORKS:
The goal is to have as many ball exchanges on a single tennis court as possible, using the singles lines on the court. The challenge is that on each side of the court only two Wilson Ultra rackets are in use and after each exchange the racket needs to be handed over to the next but one player in line. Upon hand off of the racket, the player runs to the other end of the court and gets in the back of the line. This process continues until a player hits a ball in the net or out of the singles lines on the court. A miss concludes that attempt. There are no more than 5 attempts permitted at a single World Demo Tour event. A minimum of 4 players are required to perform the Wilson Ultra® Around the World Challenge.
HOW IT IS SCORED:
The score for purposes of the Contest is a combination of numbers of players and the number of valid exchanges.
>> (# of players x 4) + (# of consecutive hits) = The score
>> Example: 20 players with 40 consecutive hits = (20 x 4) + 40 = 120
The score will be calculated and reported onsite at the event by the Wilson sales representative or ambassador. The Wilson sales representative or ambassador will send the number of players and consecutive hits via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The score will be published on the World Demo Tour website. Entrant Facility fully and unconditionally agrees to and accepts these Official Rules and the decisions of such representative or ambassador.
The Wilson sales representative or ambassador must get a photo of the player group together and send the photo, name of event and location, number of participants and number of consecutive hits by email to email@example.com. In addition, to be eligible for entry, all players must be registered online for the World Demo Tour event they have attended.
NOTE – THIS CONTEST IS OFFERED ON A BUSINESS-TO-BUSINESS BASIS. NO CONSUMERS (INCLUDING, PLAYERS WHO PARTICIPATE IN A WILSON ULTRA® AROUND THE WORLD CHALLENGE FOR OR ON BEHALF OF AN
ENTRANT FACILITY) WILL BE ELIGIBLE TO WIN A PRIZE IN THE CONTEST.
Limit: There is a limit of one (1) entry per Entrant Facility. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected scores, which will be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the Entrant Facility. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. The “authorized account holder” is the facility associated with the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address.
5. Winner Determination:
Winners will be determined via the following process:
At the end of the Promotion Period, the Entrant Facility with the highest score in each of the Americas Territory, the European Territory and the Asia-Pacific Territory (as submitted to Wilson by the Wilson sales representative or ambassador) will be determined a potential Prize Winner (up to a total of 3 Prize Winners, one per Territory).
In the event of a tie, the Entrant Facility with more players that participated in The Wilson Ultra® Around the World Challenge shall be the potential Prize Winner. In the event of a tie in the amount of players, then Sponsor will break the tie based upon the earlier date and time of the applicable World Demo Tour Event. IF NO ENTRIES ARE SUBMITTED IN COMPLIANCE WITH THESE OFFICIAL RULES FOR A GIVEN TERRITORY, NO PRIZE WILL BE AWARDED FOR SUCH TERRITORY. Odds of winning depend on the number and caliber of eligible entries received in accordance with these Official Rules.

If a potential Prize Winner cannot be contacted, fails to execute and return the Affidavit within the required time period (if applicable), or Prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential Prize Winner forfeits the Prize. In the event that a potential Prize Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right to award any given prize to an alternate Entrant Facility based on the next highest score received, even if the disqualified Potential Winner’s name may have been publicly announced. If after three (3) attempts a Prize Winner is not confirmed, the Prize will remain un-awarded.
