Notes:

* Interclub fees - a membership entitles you to enter the Interclub competition, however there will be an additional per-night charge. This is billed at the start of the Interclub season, and must be paid within 3 weeks of the season starting. The cost for 2016 has not yet been confirmed, but we expect this to be around $90 - $110 per player.

* Visitor fee refund - if you have visited us, paid the visitor fee and then wish to join, we will refund the cost of up to 3 visits. You must present the receipts as proof that the fees were paid when you pay your membership fee. Note that this does not apply to half year or competition only members.

* Half year rate - note that the half year rate also entitles you to play on the club play days at the beginning of the following year. We cannot accept new members until the fees have been set for the new season, which normally happens around 1 month after the season has begun.

* ABA Gillies Ave lighting cards - Club members are entitled to discount rates on court hire at the Gillies Ave courts. The ABA has different discount rates depending on your memebership level, the rates are on the ABA website here. As we only submit membership updates to ABA periodically, if when requesting the discount rate you are told that you aren't on their club list, please contact the club to get your information updated.

Should you have any other queries please contact us.

Club Season runs approximately February to October each calendar year. Summer competitions are available through the ABA.
