Mote Squash Club 2021-2022 Membership Subscriptions Proposal – May’21

At the last AGM on 13th Nov’20, the proposal to charge members half fees in relation to the previous years was unanimously supported. However, not long after the meeting, the club was forced to close until recently, and the Committee did not go ahead with requesting subscriptions from members, and so there has been no income from memberships for 2020-2021.

In anticipation of the Club re-opening in May and with the possibility of some semblance of normality returning, the Club Treasurer, Bob Korten, has reviewed the financial situation. With the Club having received approx. £25k in grants from a number of sources over the pandemic period, there is a net deficit over the 12mth period of approx. £5,000, leaving the Club with a balance of just under £40k, which on balance is an excellent position considering. With re-opening, the level of expenditure will however increase, and these reserves will quickly deplete.

The main source of income are the membership subscriptions, and this enables us to invest into the running and maintenance our Club. The Committee are also mindful that we may have lost some membership over the pandemic period, and we have less certainty on what our financial position will be over the next period.

The Committee have therefore unanimously agreed on the following proposal:

Existing members (paid up as of 30th September 2020)

  • Membership subscriptions for existing members will become due 1st July 2021 (3mths early) for a period of 15 months until 30th September 2022
  • Members will receive 15 months membership for the normal price of 12 months
  • Existing memberships will remain active until 31st July 2021 at which point they will be terminated, unless of course membership has been renewed in July

New members:

  • Members who have joined since 1st October 2020 have paid a prorated fee, to cover play for 4 months from June - September 2021, and so membership renewal will be due from 1st October (payment due by 31st October) at the standard rates below that will cover the 12months until 30th September 2022
  • Any new memberships from now until to 30th September 2021 will be charged on a pro-rata basis of the full fee rate, and the normal charge for 12mths would be applied from 1st October

The proposed fees for 1st July 2021 to 30th September 2022 are as follows:

  • Adult £160
  • Off Peak £80
  • Senior £100
  • Student / Junior £35
  • Family £250
  • Social. £15

The Committee is not proposing to hold an EGM to formally seek member’s approval as this is a change from what was agreed at the last AGM, but would respectively ask the members to consider and accept this proposal in the context of the current situation the Club finds itself in.

If there are objections to this proposal, please send an e-mail logging your objection to myself at and also to the Club Secretary, Alastair Hill, at , along with a counter proposal by Sunday 30th May. At that point, the Committee will review any feedback and either implement the proposal or propose a mechanism to pass a more formal members vote.

The Committee and I consider this to be the best and fairest way to get more financial security and keep the Club running in the best way possible, and thank all the members for their patience and consideration over these past 12 months.

Tim Casey

Club Chairman
