New members are welcome to join Sonning Lawn Tennis Club for the 21/22 season using our online membership portal called 'Member mojo'. If you're looking to renew your membership or join the club, please click on the link to the right of this page. As voted on at the AGM in 2020, prices remain fixed for 21/22 compared to 20/21, and in addition to this, due to the lack of play as a result of COVID-19 restrictions, all renewing members received a 20% reduction in 21/22 to compensate for this lack of play in 20/21.
You will be asked to make an online bank transfer of your membership fees when you reach the end of the online form. If you wish to pay by cheque, the details will be shown at that stage.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is 'member mojo'?
A. Member mojo is a club membership software that many other sporting clubs use for online applications and renewals, electronic payment, a central member database and group email distribution. It is fully GDPR compliant.
Q. Why is Sonning Tennis using 'member mojo'?
A. We were keen to use an online membership tool for ease of use for our members, and for us to be able to keep records secure. You also won't need to keep telling us your address / phone numbers in future, as the system will retain this information. Hopefully you will find it easy to use, but if you're having any issues at all, please contact Emily Bushby on email@example.com
Q. Can I pay by cheque or bank transfer?
A. When you get to the payment page you can select to pay by cheque or bank transfer and instructions are given. We will confirm your membership when the cheque / bank transfer is received.
Q. Do you have a preferred payment method?
A. We would prefer that you pay by bank transfer rather than cheque, if you are able to, for administrative reasons.
Q. Can I pay using a credit or debit card?
A. No, Sonning Tennis is not yet able to take payment using credit or debit cards.
Q. Can I pay using PayPal?
A. No, Sonning Tennis doesn't have a PayPal account so we're not yet able to take payment using credit or debit cards. We're investigating this for future years.
Q. I'm a new member; do I need to pay the full annual rate?
A. We pro rate the amount that you pay if you join from September onwards, based on the month that you join. As a guide, the membership fee in September is c. 40% of the full year rate, and each month reduces from that point until the start of the new membership year. Emily will be in touch with any members joining after September to confirm the rate to pay.
Q. Shared email address for family members - why can I renew my membership but not membership for other members of my family?
A. If 2 or more people share the same email address, you can switch between the members in the top right hand corner of the membermojo home page (near the 'sign out' button) so can access renewal for other members of your family.
Q. How do I change my membership category or any other information?
A. When you login to membermojo you can change any of your information by clicking on 'Your membership' at the top of the home page and then you can edit any details, view payment history and set or change your password for membermojo.
