British Tennis Membership is a player and supporter membership of the LTA, the governing body of tennis in the UK
In the past you have either had to be a member of a tennis club or has to pay for individual membership (which currently costs £25) to become a member and access the many benefits.
But now Local Tennis Leagues has been recognised as a "nomadic" club - we think it sounds quite exotic - which means anyone who plays in one of our rounds is entitled to FREE British Tennis Membership.
New players will be asked to indicate on the Playing Standard Questionnaire if they wish to take up the offer of membership. If you are a current player, you need to let us know if you would like us to submit your details to the LTA. Please complete the form here.
We offer membership on the basis that you play in at least one round of a league in the last 12 months (players who played in previous rounds may be required to join and play in a new round) Your membership will be confirmed after you have played your first match. (If you don't play a match, we reserve the right not to offer free British tennis Membership, though it is still available for £25 directly from the LTA.)
