SATTC Membership Policy

Due to the club being in the very healthy position of being at full capacity, the Committee continues to make inquiries regarding obtaining larger premises where we will be able to utilise more tables.

In the meantime, the club is obliged to implement a more rigid application of its rules concerning the allocation of playing time and membership.

These measures will hopefully go some way towards easing the pressure on the capacity that we currently have:

1. Tuesday 7pm onwards is open to all senior members, those junior members invited for “advanced” coaching and juniors who are currently competing or have competed at senior tournament or league level. Non-members will only be allowed to play if capacity allows. But they may find that they will not be allocated any time on table.
2. Thursday Junior Coaching, 5.30pm to 7pm is open to all junior members. After 7pm the club is open to all senior members, those junior members invited for “advanced” coaching and those who are currently competing or have competed at senior tournament or league level. Non-members will only be allowed to play if capacity allows. But they may find that they will not be allocated any time on table.
3. With the exception of current members, recreational players of a low standard will unfortunately not be offered membership until we are able to increase our capacity to fit in more than five tables.
4. New adult members must already be at a level where they provide reasonably competitive opposition to intermediate junior players. Membership will be granted at the discretion of the Committee.
5. The club maintains a waiting list. Those would-be members on the list will be informed when there is room on the membership roll for them to join if they still wish to do so.

Club members will of course be kept informed of any progress towards obtaining larger premises and any alterations to the above policy.
