Great Ayton Tennis Club is a Charity (CIO) managed by a team of unpaid Trustees, Team Captains, Volunteers and our members; who as a cross-section of society provide expertise in a wide range of fields from business, healthcare, law, childcare to financial auditing.
Our main expenses are maintaining the courts and grounds, repairs, rent, insurance, council tax, website, League and LTA fees. Major renewals such as the recent “Poraflex” resurfacing requires significant annual savings over a long period of time to build a sinking fund for future investment. We endeavor to keep our subscription fees affordable and to encourage new members particularly juniors and their whole families. The more members we have the more the cost can be shared.
The family rate assumes two playing adults and basically as many children as you have nearly for free. Where only one parent plays it may be better to join as an individual adult and junior(s). No problem if you chose to do that. Where neither parents play we encourage Guardian membership, where the Guardian (might be grandparent) looks after a Junior and provides a ball feeding service and lots of encouragement, when not being professionally coached. We accommodate the situation where one partner is a reasonable player by providing both keep fit classes, social facilities and coaching to the other more “reluctant” partner and our half price membership offer in the first year allows that partner to try tennis and the Club out for free. There are worse places to just sit and relax in the sunshine, taking pride in junior’s growing expertise. And we have not forgotten those who thought they were no longer able to play. Our Rusty Racket offer is to encourage you back, to enjoyably use that extra time you have with friends in the morning, afternoon or evening.
We accommodate all types of individual, family group, disability and financial circumstance and provide a Confidential consultation service should you wish to explore options not covered by our basic offer below.
