How to apply: Full membership
Applications for Full membership only take place on an annual basis. Applications open in January.
Every February and March we run a series of Play-In days to meet all the potential new members.
This comprises a short informal group interview with the selection committee and then a session on court supervised by our coaches and match captains.
We therefore get to know you both on and off court and you get to find out a bit more about us.
Once the membership renewals have been completed on 31st March, we'll know how many spaces we're able to offer to potential new members and all applicants are then notified accordingly.
To be considered for full membership at Putney Lawn Tennis Club we expect you to be able to do the following:

Rally from the baseline and have the ability to adapt to receiving different speeds and spins.
Direct both forehand and backhand volleys using chopper grip.
Understand the rules of doubles, where to stand, and how to play a competitive game.
To apply for the following membership categories - Off-Peak, Student, Junior and Social - please contact the Club Manager to discuss availability.
