Club membership is open to all residents of Compton and Shawford and the club welcomes new members of any age or standard. If you would like to join Compton and Shawford Lawn Tennis Club, please complete the Full Membership Application Form. All membership queres go to our membership secretary Carol Ellison.
Details of the subscription rates and joining fees are set out below. If you are not a resident of the parish of Compton and Shawford, you may still join the club but you will need to have your membership proposed by an existing full playing member.
If you haven’t done so already, also please consider joining LTA British Tennis Membership since it is both FREE to members of the club and also brings significant advantages for the club.
All club members may have access to the courts at any time in addition to the recognised times, provided that there is no coaching, private hire or organised match in progress. If any member wishes to play at other times it is necessary to enter names on the booking sheets provided on the noticeboard. Please note that courts may only be booked privately for one hour unless no one else is booked to play. Also, bookings may only be made two weeks ahead.
Visitors are always welcome but must be accompanied by a member of the club who must enter names into the Visitors Book. Visitors may play on a maximum of three occasions a year, to comply the terms of our insurance.
Access to the tennis courts is available by combination lock. The access code will be provided when your membership is processed or may be obtained from the membership secretary.
The floodlights operate on a timer system. The lights are timed to operate from 3.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m. throughout the year. If you are on court when the lights time out PLEASE still switch them off otherwise they will automatically switch back on the following day. When the floodlights are switched off one stays on to act as a courtesy light, the courtesy light stays on for several minutes and will switch off automatically.
COURT AND CLUBHOUSE RULES
Players are requested to wear correct dress at all times (denim and jeans are not allowed on court). Non-marking rubber soled tennis shoes must be worn on court. We also ask that members keep the clubhouse and the surrounding area as tidy as possible. Please wash up when making use of glasses, crockery etc. and leave the cloakroom as you would wish to find it.
