Guest Rules – What you Need to Know

As a members only Club, we are always very keen to protect the interests of our members first and foremost.  We know sometimes it is nice to bring a guest in occasionally for some lunch or a coffee, especially if it is a close friend or family member that you want to show around the Club and spend time with. Since opening in 2017 we have allowed these types of visits on the odd occasion if members have asked us.

However, we are now busier as a Club and have of course capped our membership (including social memberships) to ensure that the environment remains pleasant for our members. The pandemic has resulted in many more members working from home full-time or part-time, and this has led to an increased number of non-member guests being brought into the Club for meetings or just for coffee/lunch. The Club Lounge can become very crowded at times, with members unable to find a seat or sit together, and with that in mind we feel now is the time to change our policy on non-member guests.

Guest Fee – Single Use.  

If you wish to bring a non-member guest into the Club there will be a £5 guest fee to pay at Reception for anyone aged 3 and over. We anticipate this will limit the number of requests, but it will also help us keep track of who has been in the Club and how often members are asking to bring in a non-member guest. Please note that we are still asking that you only bring a guest in on an occasional basis and regular use will still require that person to join the waiting list to become a social member. All money taken will go to member chosen charities.

Guest Pass – Families of juniors in swimming lessons and Junior racquets coaching.

To accommodate those scenarios where a grandparent or other family member needs to bring your children to their swimming lessons or junior racquets coaching, we are offering non-members accompanying children the chance to purchase a ‘Guest Pass’ – which is valid for the duration of the term and permits admittance only for the period when racquets coaching or swimming lessons are running.

Separate passes are available for adults and juniors, priced at £15 and £5 per term respectively. They are transferable, so if you have different grandparents who need to bring the children to their lessons from time to time, they can share the pass. The pass will, however, only admit one person per session and will be limited to one usage per week.

The junior pass is available to non-member siblings or other children who will be on site, but who are not members.

Please note that we can no longer admit non-members during these sessions that do not have a pass and to avoid delays at reception at the start of term, it would be extremely helpful if we could make the arrangements for any passes in advance of the first lesson.

Bringing Guests in to use the Club Facilities

Our policy here has not changed. You can still pay for a day pass for a guest to use the whole Club with you or a squash or tennis guest fee to bring someone in to play squash/tennis only. You may only bring the same person in to play tennis or squash up to 4 times per year.

Our guest pass fees are as follows:

Day pass:             £30 Adult / £15 for U16’s / £3 for U3s

Tennis pass:        £12

Squash pass:      £10

Finally, don’t forget if you add premium membership to your account you will automatically receive one “day pass” per month along with the other benefits. You can read more about our Premium membership option here.
