Membership Subscription Update (Tuesday 24th March 2020@13:24)

As mentioned in my previous email on Monday 23rd March, the Club is closed until further notice.
I would just like to say a big thank you to all those members who have sent in lovely messages of support to the Club.  I have no doubt the Club and its loyal members will come back stronger than ever once we are through this tough period.
Membership Subscription Update
During the period of Club closure, from 1st April 2020, the Club will not be collecting any membership fees for up to 3 months (25% discount on annual membership).  If the period of closure extends beyond 3 months the Club will provide a further update.   If you pay by direct debit you do not need to do anything as no money will be collected, please do not cancel your direct debit.
If you have already paid by lump sum for the 2020/21 membership year, you will be issued a refund once the Club reopens.
The Board would like to add that, with assistance from the Government Job Retention Scheme, the Club staff will continue to be paid during this time.
I will continue to update you on Club information via email, please note that the Club phones and access barrier intercom will not be staffed.  If you have any questions or queries, please email  Please also keep an eye on the Club website and social media platforms for the latest information.
As a start - Lee Strange will be holding live workouts everyday on Facebook at 09.30 & 18.00, plus for a small fee he will give advice on food, how to keep the weight off, stay healthy and motivated during this time. Find Lee on Facebook 'Leeboy Strange' or contact Lee on 07703 112599.  Further information on live online tennis coaching to follow soon...

CRAFC - CORONAVIRUS UPDATE (9:50 am, Thursday 19th March)

During this time I would like to assure our members that the Club is open and will continue to be unless informed otherwise by the Government, Public Health England and our Governing bodies.

As a precaution we have closed the Club restaurant until further notice.  Tea and coffee facilities are still available and the bar is open as normal.

The Club and its staff are working hard and have increased its cleaning regime.  Please can I ask that you assist by using the anti-bacteria sprays / wipes in the gym and wipe down equipment before and after use.  Please use the anti-bacterial hand gel provided prior to entering the Club.  The Club has only got a limited supply of hand gel left so please only use on the way into the Club and regularly wash your hands with hot soapy water in the downstairs cloakrooms and changing rooms.

Please continue to follow the advice from the Government and Public Health England.

We will endeavour to keep all our members updated on any decisions that may affect the Club.  Be sure to follow our social media accounts, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram page.  The main form of ongoing member communication will be via email.
