How do I Join?

Apr 17, 2015

It is most important for both the Association as well as a prospective member to identify the players tennis requirement.

Does the player wish to play:

  • Social tennis
  • Competition tennis
  • Receive coaching lessons

All of the above and when is the player available?

Thus we recommend that any prospective member discuss with the Membership Sceretary their needs prior to filling out any forms. It is also important that prospective members look at the Court Allocation Schedule such that they can assess whether their planned playing times and the availabilty of courts allows this to occur.

To actually join a propective member will need to fill out a Membership Application Form (attached below) and pay the appropriate fees as detailed. Approval by the Committee of Management is also required.
