£3 guest fee for non-members

St Ann’s Tennis charges members a £3 guest fees for visitors.

A guest fee will apply whenever a visitor (non-members) plays on a court booked by a member. [*]  The £3 guest fee is charged per player, per hour.

All bookings between St Ann’s Tennis members remain free of charge.

A guest fee does not apply for any court time booked by St Ann’s Tennis for coaching, club sessions or Parks League fixtures.

[*]  Guest fees do no apply for junior guests under 18 years old.

Why guest fees? These are standard practice at tennis clubs nationwide and at Brighton & Hove Parks clubs. Two of the larger private clubs in the city do not allow guests at all. Several other clubs allow visitors subject to a guest fee. Guest fees are a minor charge and tricky to apply, but they are important, because they protect the interests of paying members. It is not fair for one member to invite three non-members for tennis doubles without any extra contribution. When that situation is repeated – as it often is – the amount of court time available to paying members and visitors is significantly reduced. Unfortunately, experience tells us that the system – without court fees – is open to abuse.

You can pay a guest fee online using the St Ann’s Tennis court booking system, or the ClubSpark booking app (see the Add button on the App) or via a bank transfer. Bank details:
