Join Us & FAQ

The Butterfly Tennis Club welcomes new members. 
Memberships run yearly from 1st April - 31st March.

Rates for 2019-2020: 
Family £125
Individuals £80 
Concessions £30 (unemployed, children, OAPs - you will be asked for details of the concession you have applied for)
Off peak £40 (Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm)

An optional donation can be added which, if you are a UK taxpayer can have Gift Aid reclaimed on it.

Please note this is a yearly membership and there is no pro-rata discounts if you join half way through the year. We are planning to resurface the courts and install floodlights at the end of 2019 (See FAQs below). The courts will be closed at this time for several weeks but there will be no refund available.


FAQs
  • How do I join? If you would like to join the Butterfly Tennis Club, please fill in the form below. We only process new members at the beginning of each month so you may not hear from us until then. Once we process the memberships, we will send you the login details for the booking site. Please note that you will not be able to book courts and use the facilities until you have paid your membership in full.
  • How many courts do you have? We have two courts and a children's mini tennis court.
  • Do I have to pay to book a court? Not at present. Once you have paid your membership fees, courts are free to book. (However, this may change when floodlights are installed)
  • Do you have a tennis coach? Yes we do. Matt Bennett teaches private one to one classes, the kids classes and adult drills sessions.  If you would like private lessons, we can provide details once you have signed up. 
  • Do you have children's classes? Yes we do. Please see the Children's Tennis Class page for more details.
  • Do you have social tennis evenings? We are currently trialling these so that they are roughly every 2-3 weeks. If successful, we will hold them every 2 weeks, once at the weekend and once during the week. We also have drills sessions once a week roughly.
  • What are drills sessions? Drills are group classes of between 8-10 people, where Matt works on practising specific shots and strategies for playing tennis. There are two levels, advanced and beginner-intermediate. Once you are a member, you will be put on the Whatsapp group that advertises these events (if you are on Whatsapp and have ticked the box allowing us to contact you this way).
  • When will the floodlights and new surface be installed? We currently have a planning application to install floodlights. At the same time we will resurface the courts. This will potentially happen later in 2019.  When this happens there will be a small fee for using the lights.
  • How many bookings can I make at any time? We have recently changed the booking rules. Please see the booking rules page for more information.

Apply to join  
If you would like to join please complete the form below in full. We only process new membership enquiries in the first week of every month and you will receive an email with payment details and log in detail for the court booking site. Once we have your payment, we will email you all other necessary information and details of how to access the courts.

You will need to evidence concessionary entitlement and if you are applying for a family membership, you will need to give email addresses and names for anyone else in your family who you want to be able to make a booking.

If you have any questions, please email Tom Leighton the membership secretary at butterflytennisclub@gmail.com

Joining the Club means you agree to the Rules.

You will not be able to book courts until you have paid this year's membership in full. Payment is made through Stripe which allows us to process payments and renewals directly into our MyCourts membership & booking system.  
For donations, please include if you are a UK taxpayer and the donation is eligible for Gift Aid.  Thank you.

Please also note that all of the club officers are volunteers and have other responsibilities, so do not expect an instant response from us. We will do our best but please bear with us!  

Thank you.
