2016 Membershipposted by david at 1:59 p.m. Mon 11 Jan 2016
Happy New Year to All!! I hope everyone has had a safe & fabulous holiday season.
The 2015 yearly subscription ends on 31 January 2016. Your organising committee has decided to increase the annual subscription fees for the new year to cover ever increasing operating costs, namely affiliation fees and shuttles. This means membership for adults will now be $40 and $25 for juniors. One off sign on fee for new member remains at $25 and family concession discount also remains at $5. Session fees remain at $6 for members and $12 for casuals (Sunday juniors session remains at $5 for members and $10 for non-members).
To renew your membership, simply come to any of our sessions to pick up a new membership form starting from tomorrow Friday 1 January 2016. Memberships must be renewed in person at a session, signed by members or family. Existing members will be given first priority to renew their membership until 31 January 2016. After this date, the membership will be open to all applicants.
It is in your best interest to renew your membership early. Any existing member will be charged the casual rate of $12 if membership is not renewed by 31 January 2016. If you will not be able to attend a session until after this time, please renew at your next session attendance.
Kind regards & looking forward to seeing you all on the courts in 2016,
