Application for Membership
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.
