New greatly discounted deal for those in full time education:
We are aware that some students may be entering into an unconventional semester, so we want to offer a fantastic tennis deal to those who may not be returning to business as usual: £100 for full membership from now until 31st March 2021 (no joining fee required).
This allows you to book two courts per week yourself and play with other members 7 days a week.
Currently there are limited facilities at CIYMS due to COVID-19. Once restrictions are lifted, you will have full access to the club house, including the bar (reduced prices for members).
This is open to anyone in full or part time further education or university (including the Open University) and also to anyone who's university experience has been cut short due to the COVID-19 and is set to graduate in 2020.
An application and direct debit form can be downloaded from our website (https://www.ciymstennisclub.org). Please ensure to title your form "£100 student deal" before you post it in. Please also attach evidence of your enrolment in education, this can be in the form of a picture of your student ID or a screenshot of your timetable etc.
