Membership Renewal 2021

22 02 2021

Dumfries Sports Club understands that 2020 was a tough year and 2021 continues to be that way. The Club committee would like to thank all the members who have continued to support our club, even when they couldn’t take part in their main activity at their club.

We are now at the point of asking members to renew their memberships for 2021 and appreciate that a number of you will be apprehensive about this as your sport may not be allowed as yet. So, if you want to play tennis then please renew as soon as you can, if you are still happy to support your club and keep paying your Standing Order or full fee, then thank you very very much. Everyone else, we hope to see you very soon.

Membership Fee Support Application

The club recognises that 2020 was a hard year in a number of ways and that continues. So if anyone wants to discuss membership fee options then please take a look at our MEMBERSHIP FEE SUPPORT APPLICATION POLICY (link below). This has been created by us for you, our members. We want our members to continue at their club without any financial barriers. So please read the attached policy and complete the online form which is at the bottom of this page.


DUMFRIES SPORTS CLUB – MEMBERSHIP 2021/22
Membership renewals for this coming year for the Sports Club can now be paid.

All Members are asked to complete a renewal membership form, ensuring that you complete the whole form. (link to the form is at the bottom of the page) 

The club is still currently closed so we would ask if you could either pay via;

  • Monthly Standing Order, (form attached or you can set-up via mobile or online banking)
  • Bank Transfer for full amount, please add members name as a reference so we can match payments, 
  • Court Booking Account Top-Up, by adding the appropriate fees to your booking account via Paypal or Card payment. 
  • Cheque – If you would prefer to pay by cheque then please drop this through our door but please note that it will take time for this to be collected and banked. Please enclose your name, address and contact details with the cheque so we can match this up.

Life Members do NOT need to do anything, their details will be transferred automatically.

Standing Order paying Members please complete a renewal form so we know who is continuing. (it only takes 2 minutes)

Members who wish to pay via PayPal or by Card through their online account, can do so by login into their club account (details can be provided if you don’t know yours), select the “Top-up via PayPal” button, using the drop down menu then select the appropriate amount then add your card details (you may need to repeat this if paying for a Couple or Family Membership). Please note the Paypal fees.

Full Member – £182, Senior – £108, Intermediates & Students – £92 (these figures have been created to allow the club to secure a full membership rate once Paypal take off the fees) Any additional funds above your membership fee will be left in your club account. If you choose to do it this way please let me know by email as soon as possible, so I can remove the sum straight-away. You don’t need a PayPal account to do this.

Standing Order/Faster Payments
If you pay by Standing Order, please check if your membership category is changing because of your age and adjust your payments accordingly by the end of February please.

Guests (when they are allowed back at the club)
Once Covid restrictions ease, members are allowed to bring guests to the club for a game of squash or tennis, when booking a court with the one fob a £2 guest fee will be taken plus the normal court fee. All visitors who use the bar must sign the visitors book which is located in the bar. Members are not allowed to bring guests to the gym. We would also ask members to restrict the same guest to no more than 3 games of either squash or tennis per year. Anything above that then please get them to join on a Trial Membership or a membership.

Trial Membership

Trial Memberships cover a 1 year period, therefore if a Trial Member does not join after their 2 months Trial ends they will NOT be allowed another Trial until a 12 month period has lapsed from their trial end date. They can join as a full/Pro-rata member at any time after their trial has ended.

PLEASE NOTE, IF MEMBERS DO NOT COMPLETE THEIR MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL BY THE END OF SUNDAY 14TH MARCH 2021, THEN WE WILL HAVE THEIR KEY FOB DEACTIVATED.
