Membership

Membership runs annually from April 1st.
If you have any queries, please contact the Membership Secretary.

 

We have always been a busy club but have never been in the position of having too many members. 
Since the re-opening of the club from lock-down in early May we have been inundated with new membership interest and applications.

We have 6 courts, and 3 coaches and an active coaching program for adults & juniors - but with a strong emphasis on juniors.
Class sizes have been limited to 5-pupils under the LTA guidelines active from 31-May-20.

We have introduced a court booking system – which we didn’t have before and was essential to open after lock-down.
We have a very good understanding of court usage and we restrict bookings for members to ration the use of court time.

This has put us in a very difficult situation where we need to ensure that we do not have so many members that getting on court becomes difficult for everyone.

Since late-May we have had a waiting list for new members and have now closed the opportunity for old members to re-join.

We will not draw any new members from the waiting list until we have reviewed the court availability once all members are active and used to the new regime of booking courts.
This will be in early August.
It is quite possible that even then we must decide that we just can’t take any more members without causing undue pressure for everyone to get enough playing time.
It could be April-21 before new members will be able to join – as some people do not renew.

If you would still like to put your name forward for the waiting list in these circumstances, then please contact the Membership Secretary.
