Becoming a member
We recommend you call in and visit us, so we can show you around. You can attend as a visitor to our social tennis, play for up to three visits for a small fee, and then after you have tried us out, join our club.
Once you are ready to join, speak with our membership coordinator or email email@example.com for a Membership Information Pack. Alternatively, you are welcome to drop in at the club during opening hours and pick up a pack.
The Application Process
Corinthian encourages applications for membership. Although there is no waiting list, there is a modest assessment process by which prospective members are considered for their standard of tennis play and their attitude. As outlined in the section regarding visitors, prospective members should be aware that because they will be playing with 3 other people during a set, they need to be able to play to a reasonable level for social tennis. This means they need to be able to serve, rally and keep score.
Corinthian has found that new players tend to develop their skills rapidly, and so we are understanding of this in approving applications. In some instances, new or prospective members may be encouraged to undertake some coaching with the club coach, before playing on club days.
The grass court season at Corinthian generally starts in October and continues each week through to the long weekend in June. From June to October play is available on the synthetic/hard courts during Saturday afternoons and Tuesday mornings.
