We wish all our members a very Happy New Year!

Please read the following carefully as the club are bringing about some changes to help streamline our systems.

1. Membership renewal
The club renewal date is 1st April 2020, & there will be no increase in subscription.

Adults £160 or £15 per month.
Students £50
Juniors £65 or £6 per month
Minis £45 or £4 per month
Under 5 free

This year, all members will need to renew their memberships online using their Clubspark login. Clubspark is a user friendly system which will allow you to have full control over your membership. Any existing standing orders currently paying into the clubs account for membership fees only, should be cancelled from 1st April 2020, with payments taken via Clubspark from the start of the new membership year. You will receive a separate email, inviting you to sign up.
It is your responsibility to create a login, & to update any details such as contact & medical information as well as consents to the club communications, & use of photos.

If you are unable to access the club website or have any questions or concerns with Clubspark, please email our club administrator, Jacqui: downendandfrenchay@outlook.com or call 07928 349154.

2. Coaching Programme
Booking for the spring term is available with courses starting from Sunday 5th January.
All the courses are on our website & the club would prefer all bookings to be made online. If you experience difficulties with this please contact
Josh: josh.wraith57@gmail.com
If you would like to join some coaching courses & are not sure which would be most suitable please contact Josh & he will advise you. If there isn’t anything suitable please also let us know as we would welcome any suggestions for future planning.
The club are pleased to introduce a new coach to our team, Paul Brown, level 3.

3. Car Parking
A further reminder to advise that tennis club members must now return to using the main cricket club car park. Please do not use the golf centre car park unless you are supporting their business. If the generosity of the golf centre is abused the green gate will be locked.

4. BTM number & Opting in
Please be aware that you will be asked for your British Tennis Membership (BTM) number, in order to Opt in for the club Wimbledon ticket ballot draw. The more members who opt in will increase the club‘s ticket allocation, so the greater chance of your name being drawn. Even if you are not interested in entering the club draw, the club & fellow members, would still be grateful for a greater allocation! Members must Opt in by mid February please.
Once you have noted your BTM number you can add it to your profile on ClubSpark. If you have any difficulty with this please contact Jacqui who will be able to help you.

5. Future Dates for your diary:
Thursday 16th Jan, decision of our planning application for a club room
Friday 24th April from 6pm AGM & Club Wimbledon Ticket Ballot Draw
Sunday 10th May, from 10.00-4.00pm Joint Frenchay Sports Clubs Open Day ( also Nature Valley Big Tennis Weekend at DFTC)
