The primary goal of Hackney Tennis Membership is to allow access to competitive tennis, for local junior and adult tennis players. Your Hackney Tennis club membership also makes you eligible for free (Child or Lite) British Tennis Membership (BTM) and the benefits it offers.
We have a set membership year running from 1st October – 30th September. Hackney Tennis is introducing FREE membership from October 2019 with a one off administration fee of £5. This will be applicable to ‘all’ members whether junior or adult.
You do not need to become a member of Hackney Tennis in order to access courts or courses, however we encourage all those participating in tennis whether a casual player, competitive player, junior or parent of junior, to join us, benefit from the membership and get involved.
In addition to the new free membership a number of player packages are being developed. The following Membership packages are being developed.
- Free Junior Membership – (there is a one-off £5 administration fee for the first year) this is for Juniors of all ages who are NOT currently involved in Hackney Tennis squads but who would like a British Tennis Membership in order to compete and/or be more involved in Hackney Tennis
- Free Adult Membership – (there is a one-off £5 administration fee for the first year) this is for adult players who wish to compete, participate in teams on an ad hoc basis, have an interest in Hackney Tennis due to other connections such as their children and/or are interested in the other benefits of a membership (see below). This is NOT suitable for regular team players or Box League players who should look to the Registration packages below which include your club membership.
Membership and Registration Packages*
- Junior & Mini Squad Registration – this is by invitation only and is a requirement of squad participation and includes membership
- Box League Registration – this is an annual £30 fee for participation in the Hackney Tennis Box League, including up to four Box League seasons. This registration fee applies throughout the membership year, regardless of how many seasons a player competes in within a year. Your annual club membership is included in this fee.
- Adult Team Registration includes 3 options:
- Annual Adult Team registration for £75 includes your annual club membership and absorbs the set-up fee, eligibility for team selection, eligibility for team training, and all match fees for the year.
- Seasonal Adult Team registration for £40 includes your annual club membership and absorbs the set-up fee, eligibility for team selection, eligibility for team training and all match fees for that season (Winter or Summer).
- For players who cannot commit to a season but who might be called up to play a team match on the odd occasion, you may simply pay the £10 one-off match fee payable via the adult competition page. You will need to sign up to the free Adult membership (see above) to be eligible to play for the club and for team training.
