Club Membership

Our membership fees enable you to be a full playing member of all sections of Lancaster Cricket and Sports Club and give you membership of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). There are also reduced fees, pro rata on our full rates, for members who join midway through the season – which starts on 1st April.

Membership Fees 2024/25

ALL the fees quoted below are for the full year, which runs from 1 April to 31 March,, and reduced rates pro rata are charged during the season.

GOOD NEWS – all fee rates are again being held at 2021 levels

The full fee for the membership year is £120 and this year there is a choice between EITHER
paying fees to Lancaster Cricket & Sports Club and being a member of the ‘100’ Club. This can be paid through a £10 per month standing order or by a payment by cheque of the full amount, before 1st May. At the end of every month there is a ‘100 Club’ draw for prizes.


You can pay your full fee directly to the Tennis Club (by cheque, standing order or BACS). With both payment arrangements, members qualify for reduced price drinks at the Club bar. Unlike some other local Clubs, this fee includes all use of floodlights – there are no hidden extra charges.

New adult members are charged a special introductory annual fee of £75, which includes Associate membership – payable in one instalment by cash, BACS or cheque to the Tennis Club . Those joining in October are charged a lower fee as a winter membership.

The adult fee for the full membership year is £75 and we ask for this to be paid in one instalment, either by BACS directly into the Club bank account or by cheque of the full amount, before 1st May.

This fee includes Associate membership of the main Club (LCSC) with reduced price drinks at the Club bar. Unlike some other local Clubs, this fee includes all use of floodlights – there are no hidden extra charges.

Those joining later in the year are charged a pro rata fee, and from October there is a lower winter membership fee of £50.

For adults who are already full playing members of another local tennis club, there is a Second Club option. This enables you to join Lancaster Tennis Club for only £50 for the year and includes Associate Membership of the LCSC.

Second Club members joining from October onwards are asked to pay a fee of £35 till the end of March.

A membership form still needs to be completed and returned to the Membership Secretary, Sandra Eccles, together with the appropriate cheque or cash (see below). We also now accept a BACS payment to the Club’s bank account.

Full-time College and University students over 18 are eligible for the lower student fee. This option also includes the LCSC Associate Membership fee and should be paid in one instalment by cash, cheque or by BACS to the Club’s bank account.

Students joining the Club from October onwards are asked to pay £35 to cover the remainder of the membership year. This also includes the LCSC Associate Membership fee.

In 2023/4 there will be new fee arrangements for juniors in our Club. All juniors registered for coaching with the Cartmell Academy will be required to be Club members. The annual fee for primary aged juniors is £13 and for secondary aged it is £20. All juniors playing in League teams also need to be Club members

There are new couple membership fees – £180 for continuing members and £110 for new members. Both of these fees give considerable savings on the full fees.
Family membership fees are decided on an individual basis by the Committee.

This is a special, low, fee for parents and grandparents who would like to play informally with their children.

This includes the £5 LCSC Associate member fee but normally does not allow the member to play in organised social tennis or Club teams

For adult members who only want to play Pickleball on our mini court, there is a special annual membership fee of £40. And we now have a special Winter Only fee of £15 for anyone wanting to play indoors at Salt Ayre Leisure Centre.

We welcome guests to our Club and they can join social tennis and play with members.

Normally we prefer guests to become members if they play on a regular basis. Guests are not able to purchase a clubhouse key or book a court on our court booking system. Currently the guest fee is £3 per session, to be paid into the ‘honesty’ box in the clubhouse.

The only exceptions to this are (a) U3A members who play on Monday mornings and whose fee is £2 , payable to our Club U3A contact – currently Rose Parker and (b) the Bolton le Sands sheltered housing group on Fridays whose fee is also £2 per person.

Junior Guest fee: £1 Per Session

There are also special joint fees for Juniors who are members of both the Tennis and Cricket Sections – 1 child £55, 2 children £95 and 3 children £125

Anyone not paying his/her membership fees by 1st May at the latest, either by BACS, Cheque or by standing order arrangement, will not be permitted to play in any of the Club’s teams and will have to pay an additional fee of £20.

All members, whether paying by standing order or by cheque or by BACS directly to the Club’s bank account, need to complete the relevant Tennis Club membership form please (accessible below) and return it to:

Sandra Eccles, Membership Secretary, 27 Maplewood Gardens, Lancaster LA1 4PE (with the necessary payment). Any cheques need to be made payable to Lancaster Tennis Club.
