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 had never been in the position of having too many members. 
Since the re-opening of the club from lock-down in early May-2020 we have been inundated with new membership interest and applications - which continue to this day.

We have 6 courts, and 3 coaches and an active coaching program for adults & juniors - but with a strong emphasis on juniors.

We introduced a court booking system – which we didn’t have before and was essential to open after lock-down - and it has proved popular  so we have kept it, but you can play on unbooked courts.
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 at peak times.

Since late-May 2020 we have had a waiting list for new members .
We now have a record number of members (doubling in size since 2020) and over 350 people on a Waiting List.
We offer membership to people on the waiting list when existing members do not renew.
We have closed membership now until 1-April-2024.

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