Anyone interested in becoming a member may contact the Pro Shop and speak to one of the tennis professionals. Scheduled Introductory Nights and Family Afternoons can be found on the Tennis Calendar.
A candidate for membership is first proposed by a proposer, seconder and referee(s) and then elected by the Committee.
The strength and longevity of our game and the Club rests with the members.
As such, the responsibilities of a member in proposing a new member extend beyond arranging a candidate’s nomination form. These include introducing them to other members, to the customs and protocols of the Club and making sure they feel welcome in the Club.
Individuals who are interested to join the Club, but do not know RMTC members, may seek assistance from the Membership Committee. This may include an introduction to club members and consideration of temporary membership for six months, to get to know the game and the Club, prior to nominating for ordinary (or other class of) membership.
The complete requirements for nomination and the procedures to be followed are detailed on the Nomination for Membership forms available from the office at the Club and any questions may be directed to the Chair of Membership.
The RMTC has a number of different membership categories as an inclusive family club. The Committee maintains a continuous review of membership levels and from time to time may establish a waiting-list for candidates.
