Can I look round the club before I join?   Of course.  The best time is saturday afternoons 130-3 for our coach-led open doubles session for all levels, no need to book.  Or for intermediates our tuesday evening session 7-830.   Otherwise email membership@dulwichtennis.com with a sense of your playing experience and we will find someone to show you around.

How do I join or renew?  You can join directly online from our website, paying by gocardless.  Or you can fill in the paper form and join by cheque or by credit card at the club bar. 

What does my membership include?    Membership includes free use of the courts, access to member-only sessions, coaching and competitions, and the free coach-led mix-in sessions on saturday for all levels, and tuesday for intermediates.  The only extras are balls, floodlights and coaching (and drinks).  

How do I enter the Wimbledon ballot?   The LTA rules are here, adults and junior members aged 9-17 may join British Tennis as an affiliate members of Dulwich Tennis, must opt in to the ballot by 19 Feb 2016, and must remain an eligible member at the time of the Club ballot which is 4 May in 2016.  If you become a new member after 19 Feb you are eligible provided you affiliate and opt-in at least 24 hours before the ballot. The way the ballot is organised by the LTA means the Club has no discretion in applying these rules. 

Can I bring guests?   Yes on payment of a £3 guest fee per person per visit. A non-member may visit as a guest up to 4 times each year (no matter who invites them) after which we ask them to join
