We renewed our lease with the Castletown Commissioners in 2002 for a 5 year period thus enabling the club to fix the subscriptions. This means that we can continue to have different membership levels. Details of subscriptions are on the membership form. Please note that there will be no charge for club sessions or matches, and tennis balls will be provided free.
We have kept subscription fees static for the last three years. However in preparation for an expensive court-resurfacing project we have planned for later this year, there will be a small increase in subscriptions next year. This increase will also apply this year if fees are not paid by 30 th April 2005 .
Anyone wishing to join the Club may contact any of the club officials. The Committee for the 2005 season consists of the Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary, Men’s Captain – Richard Kerr, Women’s Captain – Daphne Snidal, Club Coach – Neil Ronan, Charlotte Walker and Norman Lewis.
