Walthamstow Cricket Tennis and Squash Club

Membership Rebates and Rejoining the Club

The Management and Sectional Committees have continued to monitor both government and our sporting governing bodies guidance as lockdown has gradually been eased.
In accordance with the guidance our tennis facilities reopened in May followed by cricket and then squash in July. The club bar reopened on 04 July.
The sectional committees deserve our heartfelt thanks for their hard work in enabling this to happen.

On 22 May we advised as follows regarding subscriptions: -
“We will keep the position under review, particularly, the final total subscription payable by you, acknowledging that activities in the Club have been restricted. We do not want to commit ourselves now to the outcome of the review. We believe it is in the best interest of the Club for us to be patient as events beyond our control unfold and to consider what subscription adjustments can be made when the full facts are known. The objective remains protecting the future of the Club, treating all members responsibly and fairly, and providing a high standard of facilities for all.”
We have kept the position under constant review and now have a much clearer picture of the club’s position. We have had a difficult balancing act in striving to improve facilities and protect the future of the Club whilst treating members responsibly and fairly.

During lockdown we have striven to maintain and improve our facilities and have in particular: -

  • Installed an automatic vehicle barrier controlled by membership cards.
  • Refurbished squash court 1.
  • Redecorated the main hall.
  • Built an outside smoking area.

The Tennis and Squash Committees have now agreed that members affiliated to the tennis and squash sections who have paid the original full 2020-2021 subscription will receive a rebate as follows: -

Members Affiliated to Tennis

The tennis facilities were closed for some two months. The rebate is for three months to take account of reduced facilities as follows: -

  Young adult membership          £27.50
