How to Join


Please note that new full memberships are currently on hold due to COVID-19. Coaching memberships are still available. Please keep an eye on the website for further updates.


Full Memberships

Full membership of the club provides use of the courts and access to the coin-operated floodlights up until 10pm at night. If interested in joining, club-night is a good time to come along and introduce yourself. Note that members must be able to play tennis to a minimum standard in order for everyone to enjoy the games. 

Players wishing to join are invited to make themselves known to a committee member who will have a hit with you and then recommend the membership type that is right for you, either full or coaching membership. If you play at the minimum standard you will be invited to join in a doubles game on the evening and you will be welcome to join the club.

Our full memberships run from 1st April through to 31st March. If you join during the 12 months, you will be charged a pro-rata price for the remaining months.

New members joining after May
If you are joining from May onwards, please contact Anne, SHTC Membership Secretary first and we will adjust your membership fee pro-rata based on the number of months remaining to the following March. We will then send you an email invitation and request for the pro-rata amount.

Coaching Memberships

For adults and juniors alike who simply wish to have access the club for coaching or who wish to join as a full member but have yet to achieve the required standard, a coaching membership is offered throughout the year. In the first instance you will need to secure a place on the coaching programme directly with the coaching team. Thereafter taking out a coaching membership will be a requisite for continued access to the clubs coaching team, courts and changing facilites throughout the membership year.

We began managing club memberships using a system called "ClubSpark" which has been developed for the LTA, who in turn are making it available to clubs like ours. Please follow the link as we would like our members to start using ClubSpark. It allows members to create their own ClubSpark account and to manage their own details. At the membership year end, existing members will all receive an e-mail inviting them to renew their membership. 

Please read our Welcome Letter in order to familirize yourself with the club rules before joining.
