A slew of rewards will be available to check in fans, including specific Tennis Fan Badges and discounts on tickets.

“The tennis fans lucky enough to become ‘Mayor’ of each court at the event will even have the chance to win the ultimate prize – the opportunity to participate in a pre-match coin toss.”

This is a significant victory for Foursquare given the publicity and new users such an event is likely to attract, meaning that Foursquare will continue to dominate the check-in app market.
