Letter from the President of Chandlers Tennis and Board member, Dan Frazier

April 24, 2019

In our continuing efforts to provide our members with the best tennis experience possible, the CLT Board of Directors has made recent improvements to our facility and has plans to continue making long-needed upgrades in the near future now that we have a rolling 5 year contract with the Chandlers HOA. In order to do so while maintaining quality facilities and a fun program for our members, a membership dues increase/restructure is forthcoming. Our plan of action includes the following:

  • Membership Dues (last modified 5/1/14) will be adjusted as of 6/1/19 to the following:

    • Family: Increases to $75/month
      •  ($825/yr if paid in advance = 1 free month)
    • Single: No change  $60/month
      • ($660/yr if paid in advance = 1 free month)
    • Junior:Increases to $35/month
      • (No discount if paid in advance)

Any member may lock in current rate by purchasing an Annual Membership for $660 prior to 5/1/19. Members currently prepaid may use their remaining balance towards a new Annual Membership at current rate of $660 if paid by 5/1/19.

Example: A member with 6 months remaining on an annual membership as of 5/1/19 could use the $330 remaining credit ($55/mo) towards new annual membership at the current rate and pay only the $330 difference by 5/1/19 and have a renewal date of 5/1/20.

They could otherwise simply let their current membership run it’s course for 6 more months and then renew as of 11/1/19 at the new rate of $825/yr.  For more info interested members may contact Mark Thoreson at thor@dallasplastics.com
