Appleby Tennis Club Registration for 2018

Spring is just around the corner and we hope that you are looking forward to another amazing season of outdoor tennis at Appleby Tennis Club. We would like to invite you to register online beginning March 1, 2018 or you can come to the clubhouse on Sunday April 8 at 10:00 – 2:00 and register in person. Membership fees are the same as 2017 rates and if you register on or before April 8, the cost is reduced by $10.00.

2018 Membership Fees:

Registration Category Membership Fee
Family (2 Adults, up to 4 Children) $270.00
Couple $240.00
Adult (over 18 as of March 1st) $140.00

If you are a returning member, you simply review your information and update if necessary. Then click through to the payment page.

If you are registering only a Junior member, the parent must enter their profile first and then add the Junior (same process as an adult member registering and then adding a Junior but the parent profile does not generate a membership fee).

Cash payment for registration is only available on April 8th at the clubhouse registration and is not available for on-line registration.
