Becoming a Member

Once you are a member of the club, there is nothing extra to pay. The floodlights are included, and there is usually an ample supply of good quality used match balls in the clubhouse for you to use.

Joining the club is simple. Just follow these steps:

  1. Decide what class of membership is appropriate: this determines your annual membership fee. The fee covers the cost of using the courts and includes the use of floodlights for evening play. The available classes of membership and fees for 2017 are:
    • Senior: (£162) Full membership for adults. Senior members may use the courts all year round, from dawn to 10 p.m. (subject to court allocation priorities -- see Activities page).
    • Junior: (£61) The class for full members up to the age of 18 who do not have a parent as a full member.
    • Weekday: (£81) A restricted class of membership giving access to courts during weekdays up to 6.30 p.m., and to all the social tournaments.
    • Junior of Senior: (£41) A reduced fee for full members up to the age of 18 who have a parent as a full member.
    • Senior Citizen: (£108) Full membership for adults aged 65 and over.
    • Young Persons: (£81) The class for full members who are under 23 or are in full-time education.
    • Country: (£81) A special membership class for members who live more than 30 miles from the club.
    • Associate: (£81) Membership for adults who are also members of another tennis club. Associate members are not eligible to play in teams. This is for one year only, after which you must join in a different category
    • Note: Annual renewal date is April 1st each year. The late payment penalty is £10. New members joining late in the year will get a pro-rata reduction of their subscription.
    • Print out a copy of the membership application form. (pdf file) (Word version) (OpenDocument Text version).
    • Fill in your details. Families may use a single form for all members who are joining.
    • New adult members pay a one-off £10 joining fee, and in addition may elect pay a £5 deposit to be issued with a key to the clubhouse.
    • Sign and date your form, make your membership subscription payment (see details on form) and send the form to Sarah Richmond, Membership Secretary, ALTC, c/o 64 Westwater Way, Didcot, OX11 7TY.
