Mackintosh LTC – 2019/20 Membership Renewals DUE

2019/20 Membership Renewals DUE


Calling all Members, Players, Parents and Prospective Members,

We hope you have enjoyed your year as a member at Mackintosh LTC. Membership fees for the 2019/20 year are due from 1st April 2019. To take advantage of the Early Bird Membership discount (save up to £30), please make payment by 30th April 2019.

We have great news that in September, major works will be undertaken at the club. Courts 1&2 will be resurfaced and Court 3 will be reconstructed, including the removal of the trees and bank. Internal fencing will also be renewed. The total cost for the project is around £82K. Unfortunately, during this time we will have limited access to courts 4&5 – we are currently investigating other facilities to ensure there are still opportunities for Coaching and Social hitting during this period.

This year we are delighted to be able to process all membership renewals online for the first time, using LTA software ClubSpark.

To renew your membership you will need to follow a few simple steps:
1. Click here (you will be redirected to our ClubSpark membership page)
2. Register / Log in to ClubSpark
3. Select your membership package
4. Make payment (there is an option to pay in full via Direct Debit, Credit/Debit Card, Cheque or Cash)

Following on from last year, we are keen to get more parents playing tennis at the club. We have got an option to join as a parent member for £50 – this entitles you to use the courts with your child on Saturdays after 3pm, all day on Sundays and during school holidays (when the courts are available).

Additionally, we are continuing our membership referral offer this year – if you refer a friend who joins as a FULL Individual Adult, you will receive a FREE 1/2 hour Individual Lesson or a Mackintosh LTC T-shirt.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in contact with Rhys Morgan (Head Coach) or Emma McClory (Club Secretary).
