New Members - Temporary closure of membership.
We are very sorry to say that we are unable, at this time, to accept new members into the club.
We have now reached a level of membership where we are struggling to provide the court availability to meet the demand, and it would be unfair to our current membership, or indeed any new members, to make that situation worse.
We hope this is a short term problem and we are actively seeking new venues, as well as looking to increase court availability at the venues we currently use.
Runnymede Royals Pickleball Club are committed to expanding and introducing the sport to new participants and will do everything we can to open up the membership as soon as possible.
However, we have created a reserve list. Ayone looking to join in the future can email our Club Captain – Ian Watson (email@example.com)– and ask to be placed on the list. Successful applicants will be notified accordingly.
All sessions are pre-booked by members. If you are visiting from another club, in order to avoid disappointment and to ensure you attend a session at the appropriate level, please contact our Captain Ian Watson (firstname.lastname@example.org 07584818417).
