2021/22 Special Compensated Annual Membership Fees
14th March 2021
Finally. We are now able to put behind us last year’s very disruptive season and look forward to the new 2021/22 Tennis season.
Unfortunately, this does mean that Membership fees will become payable as from 1st April 2021.
The Committee met two weeks ago to discuss ways in which could help our Members for this coming season in consideration of last year’s disruptions and lost play due to the late shut down.
As you may recall, the season started two months later than normal due to the 1st lockdown and your reduced Membership fees reflected this, however, we could not foresee what was ahead and we subsequently went into a further lockdown at the end of the season. After careful consideration to running costs and overheads which last year totalled approximately £21,000, plus the cost of £6000 in lost revenue due to the early reduced fees, The Committee have agreed to compensate Members further for lost play by reducing the 2021/22 annual membership fees by approximately 25%. This applies to all Fully paid-up Members who joined last year prior to the 1st of October 2020.
This offer is of course given under exceptional circumstances and fees will return to normal next season.
This will of course have a dramatic effect on this year’s fees into the Club which we calculate at a further cost to the Club of £16,500. The Club has fortunately been helped by grants obtained from the Government which will go some way in lessening the overall loss of income.
I hope that you will be pleased with the support given and thank you for your continued support.
I will be contacting those Members who joined after 1st October shortly.
I would ask that all Members renew via Clubspark and you will shortly be receiving a Link to enable you to renew and make this payment.
Please see below revised 2021 Membership Fees.
I look forward to seeing you back at Tennis shortly.
Very Best Wishes
Margate Lawn Tennis Club
