FAQ

1. How much does it cost to join ?

For a breakdown of our membership rates, please see the dedicated page here. Our membership year begins on 1st April and runs through until 31st March.

2. Are there additional costs ?

The only additional fees are when there are specific club tournaments organised to cover the costs of running the tournament. e.g. new balls and refreshments. We also have several charity tournaments which have a small cost to enter (normally £5pp). Another small cost is to play in the team during the summer again to cover cost of new balls and refreshments for players and opposition players also.

2. Can I pay in instalments ?

We require payment for the membership up front for the whole year but if you wish to join part way through the year there will be a reduced cost on a pro rata basis.

3. Can I book a court ?

There is no current system of booking courts as there is no requirement at present.

4 When are the mix in sessions ?

In relation to availability of courts we have club mix in sessions on a Saturday and Sunday morning and Tuesday morning in the week. These sessions are for all members and all abilities. If one of the 3 courts are free you are able to play separately at that time. However if there are such numbers at the mix in session that require all 3 courts you will be requested to join in with the mix in session. On Friday afternoons from 3.30pm-5.30pm the courts are used by the juniors. At all other times the courts are free to use for whoever arrives first. We very rarely have an issue with availability of courts.

5. Is equipment provided ?

To begin with if required there will be balls and a couple of rackets in the club house for your use to get you started and back into the swing of it! However if you wish to join you would need to purchase your own rackets/balls at some point in the near future as this equipment must stay in the club house and may not be available each time you wish to play.

6. Is there a dress code ?

There is no dress code, but i would advise some sort of sports wear and suitable non-marking sports trainers.
