Membership Subscriptions 2020 – 2021
WELCOME TO THE NEW SEASON
2020 – 2021 MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTION INFORMATION
In view of the extraordinary circumstances this year and the fact that subscription payments for April and May were deferred, the Committee has decided that this year’s subscriptions should run from 1 June 2020 to 31 March 2021 and accordingly current direct debits will be reinstated from 1 June 2020. This will mean that those who pay their subscriptions in full will pay a pro rata amount as indicated on the enclosed form but monthly direct debits will obviously stay the same. However, it has been agreed that the subscription for older playing members should increase by £1 per month to £180 p.a. and these direct debits will be automatically amended accordingly.
Whether or not you pay by direct debit, would you please complete and return the enclosed renewal membership form, either by e-mail to avenuetennisclub@gmail or by printing off a hard copy and returning it to the club, no later than 1 June. Your early attention to this would be helpful and much appreciated. If you choose not to pay by direct debit, please enclose payment with your form or transfer the relevant amount by BACS to A/c: Avenue Lawn Tennis Club, Account No: 80135720, Sort Code 20-94-74. All sections of the membership renewal form should be completed including email addresses and mobile numbers, which are very useful to help us keep you informed of what is going on at the club. The club is registered under the Data Protection Act so all your details are kept secure and confidential.
DIRECT DEBITS (please read the following carefully)
The club continues to offer playing members a direct debit facility option where the annual membership payment can be spread over the 10 months (collected on or about the 7th monthly – June 2020 to March 2021). The direct debit facility is offered as a benefit and to be able to offer this the club is governed by very strict banking procedures. It is therefore important that if for any reason you wish to cancel your direct debit, you contact the Membership Secretary immediately.
The direct debit facility is available for all membership categories except social and single stand-alone junior membership. However, junior members in the same family membership, or one playing adult and one or more juniors, may use it when one monthly payment will cover the combined subscriptions. Two or more stand-alone juniors may also be covered by one direct debit payment covering the total subscription.
When you return the bottom section of the membership form, please note on the form the amount you are expecting to pay monthly. If you already pay by direct debit, you do not need to complete another mandate form unless your banking details have changed. It would be helpful if you could write, “Already paying by direct debit” on the slip that you return, if that is the case.
If paying by direct debit for the first time, please complete the enclosed direct debit mandate, carefully including the information required (together with signature!) and return it to the Membership Secretary no later than 27th May. Please do not send this to your bank, as they will reject it. The first payment will be collected from your account on or about the 7th June but, if the mandate arrives after 27th May, a double payment will be taken out in July.
ALTERNATIVE METHOD OF PAYING
If you choose not to pay by direct debit, the only other methods are to make the full payment of the annual subscription by cash, cheque made out to Avenue Tennis Club or BACS payment as above no later than 31 May 2020.
If you have any queries regarding the above, please contact
Jane Sanders, Membership Secretary, on 01278-785547.
