MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL 1 MAY 2016 - MONTHLY INSTALMENTS
The club is willing to accept payment of qualifying membership fees, due in May, in monthly instalments of not more than 10 instalments. You can pay in lesser instalments if you wish, e,g, 2, 3, or 6 e.t.c. as long as the whole amount due is paid by the end of February 2017. There is a charge of 1 % of the total subscription which should be added to your subscription if you pay by instalments. So if your subscription is £400 p.a. the total you will pay is £404 at £40.40 for 10 months.
Only those memberships which cost £205 or more [the cost of a single tennis membership from 1 May 2016] will qualify for monthly payments. So if you are paying for more than one membership and the total cost to you is more than £205 only those individual memberships costing £205 or more can be paid in instalments. You cannot aggregate those which you pay for to make up the £205 nor include any memberships which cost less than £205 in the monthly payments scheme. So in short any membership sub of £205 or more qualifies.
We will only accept payments under this scheme by Direct Debit using gocardless. You can read all about this here:- https://gocardless.com/
We cannot accept the monthly payments by cash, bacs, direct debits [other than gocardless] or standing orders or any other means of payment.
Essentially, if you opt to pay by instalments, you will receive an email from gocardless asking you to confirm that you wish to set up a DD and asking for your bank details. Once payments commence, if you do not pay then you will be contacted by gocardless although we will be aware. If you ask to pay this way, we will take it that you agree and accept liability for the whole 12 months subscription even if it later becomes impossible for you to play. The executive committee will of course have a discretion in such cases but normally a refund will not be made once the membership has progressed beyond the end of May and we will expect the payment of the full sub.
