Joining or Renewing

Our Membership year runs from May 1st 2018 to April 30th 2019.  Our web site and notice boards are now the main source of club information but please feel free to contact any member of the committee (see contact page) if you need more information or have any questions at any time.

Existing members will be invited to renew their memberships from mid April each year. On 30th April all new year membership packages will be available on the website for new members to apply for. 

Joining and payment instructions are fully explained within our new automated renewal and payment system but if you encounter any problems at any stage then contact our membership secretary who will be happy to help. Joining should prove to be very quick and involves 4 steps

  1. Click on the website membership link (or the one provided in your renewal invite) to access the Club Spark membership system.  Create your own secure user name and password if you are logging in for the first time.  
  2. Choose which of the 7 membership options suits you best. Pricing for each of these is summarised below but you will find full descriptions of each when you click onto an individual package.

Singles Membership Options - Adult or Senior (£40),  Junior (12 to 18) or full time student (£20)

Group Membership Options - Family (£85), Couple (£75),  Couple with one or more young child (£75), Participating adult with one or more young child (£40), Supervisory adult with one or more young child (£10)

3. Enter details for one or more people

4. Pay

Please note that even though younger (primary school age) juniors can be added at no additional charge, it is important that all those using the courts during club times are registered members of the club. The exception is that Membership is not required for an initial introductory course of coaching, however it must be completed before any subsequent lessons are undertaken. All junior memberships should have an adult contact associated with their membership (this is mandatory with primary school age children). 

Historically memberships and other payments were paid through a mix of cash, cheques and bank transfer. This was complicated, prone to error and wasted a lot of time for both members and voluteers helping run the clubs administration. Our member management system introduced last year with the help of the LTA, includes its own automated direct debit payment option called GOCARDLESS.  This service is widely used by other clubs for transactions of this type and is quick, easy and highly secure. 

Last year two thirds of our members used the GOCARDLESS option and found it quick and problem free to use. It would be a big help if all members could move to this payment method however for those who prefer the option of paying by cheque is again available. Please avoid trying to use cash or our old direct debit arrangements.
