New Courts !!!

After what’s seemed like an eternity we have finally been granted permission for two more courts!!

The plans are posted on the noticeboard in the clubhouse.

Many thanks to all those (especially Ron Kelly) who have managed to steer the club through this tortuous path.

Membership 2014-15

This year (2014-15)  Lisvane Tennis club drives full-on into the 21st century with payment moving entirely online.  All members will receive an invitation to pay/renew their membership via an online invoice from a company called PayZip.

All members need to check the invoice against the current membership rates; if the invoice does not accurately reflect the membership category e.g. members moving from weekday to full membership do not pay the invoice. Contact me with the correct details and an amended invoice will be sent. If you are making any changes e.g. adding or removing family members there’s no need to wait for the invoice, contact me and I’ll make the necessary changes.

This year has also seen a number of changes to the existing rates and categories.  The junior category now covers ages 11-20. School years 6 and below has increased to £20.  Family membership has also been introduced; this applies to 2 full paying adults and 2 or more children (juniors and/or school children) for £260.

We have just taken delivery of shoes tags, these will be issued to all paid members & must be displayed when using the courts.  This is particularly helpful over the summer holidays when previous members may decide to reacquaint themselves with our facilities often inadvertently forgetting to rejoin. Actually, it’s not uncommon for those who have never joined but still like the look of the club to have a knock.  Anyone not displaying their shoes tag can be asked to leave the courts or better still invited to join the club.   Tony Symons-Hicks & myself will hand out the tags.

If you’re thinking of amending your membership from one category to another please download, complete and return the form to me and I’ll send the appropriate invoice. Additionally, if any personal information has changed e.g. email address, phone number, age – I mean those leaving the junior category and/or those entering the Senior category, let me know.
