Membership and Terms of Use

Accounts, Bookings and Payments

ABTC will keep an account of bookings, payments and fees due. The amount owing on this account must be paid (or paid to you if in credit) on resignation of membership. Please monitor your account. See Account Discrepancy if you think there is a problem.

To make bookings, members will need to have sufficient funds in their account. Funds deposited by Credit Card or by cash at an agent will be immediately available, EFT (Electronic File Transactions) may not be credited instantly. A feature to allow a negative balance can be enabled on request by e-mail to the treasurer.


You can join online as a Casual Member, to become an Annual Member, a request should then be sent.

Membership Fees

There is no charge or annual fee to register as a Casual User, Annual Members pay a once only joining fee of $20 and an annual fee of $5 is charged to the account on 16th July each year until resignation.

Financial Institution Details

We will not ask you to supply any bank or credit card details to us, when you make payments online, you deal directly with your bank for EFT or directly with PayPal.

Personal Details and Joining

Personal details will be used only for the purpose of running the Club. The member should see that details are kept current via the link on the Account page or by e-mail to Trevor

Permanent Bookings

To get an idea of when permanent bookings may be available check the booking calendar a few weeks ahead. If a permanent booking is required, an application can be made by e-mail to the treasurer. Once a booking is made permanent, bookings will continue to be made, eight weeks ahead, until the permanent booking is formally ended. The member is liable for those bookings.

Wet Weather, Cancellations and Refunds

Cancellations can be made online or via an agent. A booking credit (not including agent fee) will be given to accounts where cancellations are made;

Cancellations made less than 18 hours before the booking (late cancellation) will automatically get a credit if the court is subsequently booked to another user.

In the case of wet weather the member must request a wet weather credit online or notify the agent within two weeks following the booking date.

Please note: notification of wet weather can be given on the day of, or any time after the timeslot. This is different to cancellation, which may not be eligible for a refund.

Free Stand-By Bookings

Bookings made online, within an hour of the time slot can be requested as free, "Stand-By" bookings if they are for the use of school children. The normal fee will initially be charged and adjusted on approval. A request for a booking as "Stand-By" should be made by e-mail to the treasurer after booking.

Half Comp Entry Fee Rebate for Kids

This is an offer to our coaching kids to help them prepare for competitions entered. Half of the comp entry fee, up to $200 per year for each junior will be credited to the members account to be used for bookings. Send details of comp entry each month to treasurer.

Re-letting Courts

Courts must not be re-let or used to conduct a business (other than coaching by a coach appointed by Avoca Beach Tennis Club). It is acceptable to make a booking on your account for somebody else but this must be personal and not a business arrangement.

Request for Payment

If, at the discretion of ABTC, we request that the balance of an account is paid, it should be paid in full within fourteen (14) days of the request.

Termination of Accounts

ABTC may terminate inactive accounts after notification to the member or, without notice if the member cannot be contacted or has not responded to a payment request.

Court Fees

A schedule of court fees can be found here. Bookings made by the agent are subject to an agent fee ($2.00 per booking).
