Thinking of Joining?



We are sorry to have to disappoint you but we have had to suspend membership for the time being. Since the new season began we have been almost overwhelmed with applications from both existing and new members, such that we are concerned that court availability might suffer particularly in the three months ahead while the Durham University students are up. Although we can never guarantee that members will always find a free court when they arrive at the Club, the Committee feels keenly a responsibility to protect the playing experience of our members as best we can. To continue to accept applications before we have tested whether we can cope with the demand from our existing members we feel would not be in the interests of our 360 members.


Waiting List

If you would like to be added to our waiting list in the event of our re-opening the membership at some point in the future, please email Rodney Thomas at giving the full names of all the applicants, your telephone contact number and the category of membership in which you are interested. PLEASE DO NOT TELEPHONE AS NO TELEPHONE APPLICATIONS FOR WAITING LIST WILL BE ACCEPTED.


The Committee will keep the situation under regular review and as soon as we feel that it is appropriate to do so, we will re-open membership to both new members and those who were members last season. Once again please accept our apologies that we have to disappoint you - at least for the time being.

Additional Information

The table above shows the fee structure for the period 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022.  

Family membership can cover 2 adults and up to 4 children under 18 living at the same address. Any additional children must apply separately. Please note: Family membership MUST include at least one child. The Club also welcomes single-parent families and is keen to encourage and help them to join us. If you are a single parent and would like more information about how we can help, please contact the Membership Secretary (Rodney Thomas) on 0191 383 1983.

Junior Members. Please note that in order to qualify for Junior 12-18 category, you must be under 18 on 1st April (the first day of the season) and for Under 12 membership under 12 on the same date. Those still at school in full-time education but turned 18 on 1st April of the season in question may count as being "Junior" for that season.

Student members must be full-time undergraduate students and will be required to give their student ID number when applying. Any final year students leaving Durham permanently at the end of the Summer Term or first year students arriving in Durham in September or October are also invited to contact the Membership Secretary as a special rate will normally apply in such cases.

Mini members are children under 9 years on 1st April. The fee entitles the member to receive coaching and enter competitions. Mini members are FREE if at least ONE parent is a full-paying member.

Guardian membership is intended for any adult who, being the parent of a child receiving coaching, wishes to play only occasionally and only with his/her child at quiet times.

Visitors must be signed in by a member and may play for a maximum of two visits for a fee £5.00 per hour (Under 18 visitors £1.00 per hour). However, regrettably, no visitors are permitted while the current crisis continues.

Proof of membership is provided by a membership tag which will be sent to all members and which must be worn at all times when on court.
