General Membership Provisions
All memberships are valid for one (1) year. Renewal date for membership falls on the anniversary date of joining NDTA each year. There will be a "grace" period of one (1) month to renew your yearly membership, otherwise a new application will be necessary. All applications for Membership (Gold, Silver, Bronze) must be approved by the Management Committee, in with the Constitution.
General Court Hire Terms
When hiring a court either online or at venue, only one (1) court, per hire, per membership may be booked. To book consecutive courts within the same time slot you will need another person that holds Membership to book. Discounts differ between memberships. Please make sure you have read the inclusions of each membership type correctly before purchase.
Availability for membership court hire.
Courts need to be booked either online or in the pro shop.
Due to our ever-growing coaching & competition schedule we will not be able to guarantee availability based on membership.
Please be aware that our synthetic courts shed water very well and will generally only be unplayable after prolonged heavy rain. Determination of playability during wet weather is at the sole discretion of the Pro Shop - please ring on 02 47212880 if you need to check. For a casual booking a full credit is applied to a customer's account when a booking is unable to be used due to wet weather unplay ability. (pre-paid/ online bookings) This credit can be used against any future booking. No refunds are given. Permanent bookings receive no credit for washed out sessions.
Cancellations (online bookings)
A casual booking may be cancelled up to 24 hours prior to the booking time and a credit given for future use. No refund will be given. A permanent booking may be cancelled up to 24 hours prior to the booking time and a credit given. Only one cancellation per block booking (of up to 3 months) will result in a credit being applied to the customer's account. This credit can be used against any future booking. No refunds are given. No credit will be given for any additional cancellations.
Playing Over Time
It is the responsibility of the hirer to finish play at the designated time. Where a court is vacant at the expiry of the booking period, the booking may be extended, in which case an additional charge is payable as a proportion of the hourly rate.
If a player wishes to represent the Association in any representative event, he/she must be at least a current Bronze Level Member or pay a special “representative player fee” to cover costs. This fee will be advised for each representative event.
Players will be required to be/become Association Members. Registered Players will be eligible to play in Nepean Association Championships (subject to entry conditions) and will be registered with Tennis NSW (inclusive of all Tennis NSW benefits)
