MEMBERSHIP

Thanks for visiting our website, as you can see we are a small club but very welcoming. We have no flashy clubhouse or bar – just a bunch of people who are dedicated to enjoying tennis. We cater for all standards of play as can be seen from our membership details.

Welcome to our club – we hope you enjoy your time with us and to help you through the process this is a guide to what the club can offer.

Adult memberships:

We are a friendly open club, with four membership options for you to choose from. 

(We offer potential new members the opportunity to play with us on three occasions before you need to join and pay an annual fee, Pro rata if applicable)

We have four Tiers of membership depending on your experience and how often you are able to play. For students and those aged 18-23 please see details before the section on Club Sessions.

The starter tier is Tier Four  which is appropriate for beginners and those who want to have coaching or may not have time to play other than during coaching sessions. 

  • Access to coaching sessions at members' rates
  • Access to club events.
  • Beginners and daytime time coaching sessions available.

  • No eligibility for club matches unless with prior approval of the Committee

Our Tier Two membership is for standard and social club players - not beginners. Tier Two is the one to join if you are new to the club but have played a fair amount of tennis at club level. (This is a springboard for the top level at our club – Tier One)

The final level is Tier One: Good and advanced Club Match standard players. 

There is a playing in standard for Tier One and you can arrange to play with members or a coach who can advise you further on this.  We recommend new players joining as Tier Two initially, to get a feel of the club standards then ask a member of the coaching staff or a committee member if you wish to move on to Tier One.  

  • Club sessions on Saturday afternoons from 1pm, Monday and Thursday evenings from 6pm.
  •  Club Spark system to book courts and play anytime the courts are free and available.

Students and those aged 18-23years. We offer two separate options, dependent on whether you wish to play in club sessions or not.

1. If you are of a standard to play in a club session - relevant sessions appropriate to your playing standard, then there is a monthly fee of £10 per month which enables you to join in club sessions and play for club teams . You can pay just for the number of months you are here.

2. If you just wish to come along and play with another member outside club sessions when courts are available then the monthly fee is £5.00 per month and you just pay for the number of months you are here.

Club Sessions are set on days as stated above for each group and are mostly doubles play (balls are provided and floodlights included in Winter), members in Tiers 1-3 may book courts via Clubspark and play when courts are vacant, however, matches do take precedence. A list of matches  for Adults is on the noticeboard and on the website. Ladder Play guidelines for Club Sessions.click here Ladder Play
