Definition of membership
- A member is anyone who has paid the relevant membership fee for the current year. All members will be sent a membership tag each year and are asked to attach this to their tennis shoe or tennis bag.
- Parents with children for whom they have paid junior membership are
not themselves members unless they have also paid membership fees for
themselves. The most economical solution is to take out family membership or to join as a Parent Hitter (please get in touch with our Membership Secretary).
- Guests are not members and a guest fee should be paid each time a guest plays.
- Only members, paid-for guests and those taking part in organised club coaching sessions, or have hired the facilities, are permitted on court.
- Junior members aged under 12 must be supervised by an adult unless they are taking part in a coaching session or organised club activity.
