The Globe caters for players of all ages and has a thriving junior section. The fees and joining subscriptions are on a sliding scale depending on the age and category of membership. A short play-in session is required in order to become a member. The play-in is an informal, relaxed 10-15min hit, to gauge the standard of the applicant. You don't have to be Roger Federer or Serena Williams! But you do need to be able to rally from the back of the court, volley and serve. This basic standard ensures that you can enjoy playing with others and they enjoy playing with you. If you are a little rusty, why not contact one of the coaches for a refresher lesson or two before having a play-in. If you are a total newcomer to tennis, don't despair, an Improver category exist to help you pick up the game. Improvers can hone their skills at their own pace until they are ready to move up to another membership category. Whatever your standard, whatever your age and background, The Globe welcomes you on and off the court.
The Full Membership category entitles a member to book courts and play at any time. There is usually a short play-in session to qualify for membership.

Student / Under 21

The Improver category is reserved for players who are not quite up to the club's playing standard, but who would like to improve their game.
