1. How do I join the club?

    First, you need to apply for club membership. Probably, the easiest way to do so is to submit an on-line form. Use the  individual application form or family application form. Otherwise, grab a paper copy and post the completed form to the club.

    Then if the application is approved (and it almost certainly will be) you will be sent an invoice for fees due, including information about how to pay the fees. Approval should take about a week, but it can be slower, especially during December or January.

    Last, you pay the fees and you're good to go.

  2. How much does it cost to join the club?

    It depends on when you start, whether you're aged 21 or over, and for a family, how many members there will be.

    The cost of the first year of membersip can be more or less than for later years. There's a once-off joining fee, and other components of the fee are pro-rated according to how much of the year has passed.

    The formula gets a bit complicated. An example calculation is shown here.

  3. How can I get a key to access the courts and clubhouse?

    A key may be obtained by club members by:

    1. paying $8 to the club

    then

    2. contacting the club to advise about the request and confirm the payment - by may be easiest.

    The key will then be mailed to the member's address.

  4. How do I book a court?

    Contact Marj Cox on 9827 4068.

    Note that in general, you must be a club member to hire a court.

  5. How can I organise some tennis coaching at the club?

    Contact the club coach (refer to Coaching for details).

    Persons being coached do not need to be club members, though they are welcome to join, of course.

  6. How can I get a printer-friendly version of one of the application forms ?

    Most of the forms at Forms are available for download at the Downloads page.

    Otherwise, contact the club and request that a copy of the form be sent to you.

  7. How can I pay the club what I owe to it?

    Payments are accepted by:

    • direct bank deposit, to BSB 633-000, account 125 180 398
    • cheque or money order, payable to Eaglemont Tennis Club Inc, posted to the club at PO Box 62 Ivanhoe VIC 3079
    • some credit/debit cards (for amounts of $10 or more, and with a small surcharge)

    In any case, remember to include information about who and what the payment is for. If an invoice number is available, include that.

    Direct deposits can be initiated in person (e.g. in a bank) or via the internet. If in person, remember to ask the bank officer to also record information to identify the source/nature of the deposit. Such information will probably not be recorded, if not explicitly requested. For online transactions, where the 'description' field may be quite limited, put as much relevant info as you can into there.

    If you want to be extra sure, also send an to confirm the payment, and put into the email the details about who has paid, how much, and for what.
