Membership Benefits

The Vancouver Tennis Association is a non-profit organization run entirely by dedicated volunteers. Our annual membership fee allows the VTA to run affordable year-round programs that support and promote tennis in the 2SLGBTQ+ community 🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈

We do not offer tennis lessons or coaching but provide an outlet for our members to meet other people to play through our various programs. (We recommend players be at a self-rated NTRP 2.5 level or higher to get the most from our club).

Our membership fee entitles you to:

  • Access to our weekly social Play Session program (year-round)
  • Join the VTA team in competitions, such as the NorthWest Cup, Pacific Cup and West Coast Cup
  • Invitations to attend our social events
  • Club Championships
  • Attend and vote at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to shape the future of the club!

All members must agree to and abide by our Code of Conduct.

Who can join the Vancouver Tennis Association?

The VTA is a 2SLGBTQ+ association; we welcome everyone that enjoys the game of tennis. You do not need to identify as part of the 2SLGBTQ+ community to be a member – we don’t discriminate. We have members from 18 to 80+ (minors will need permission from a guardian).

We recommend players be at a self-rated NTRP 2.5 level or higher to get the most from our club (more details on NTRP ratings) as we do not offer coaching or tennis lessons for beginners to the game.

We do not accept discrimination or harassment of any kind, including based on age, gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. Read our code of conduct.

I’m not sure about joining the VTA, can you help?

We know that joining a new group can be daunting. We are a friendly inclusive bunch. Please reach out to one of our volunteer Executive Committee members, we can answer any of your questions and pair you up with a buddy for your first events/programs.

Let us know what will help you and we will do our best to provide it.

What are the additional costs?

We are completely volunteer-run so all membership dues and fees go into running our club, renting courts, balls etc. Membership is $50 per year.

Any programs you choose to participate in may have additional costs – as a rough outline below are some additional costs:

  • Singles Ladder is free for members (when running)
  • Play Sessions are an additional $12 per session you play in
  • Club Championship registration fees vary, but are generally $40-120
  • Social Events may have a ticket price usually around $20 (often covers a drink and some food)

Specific cups and tournaments have an outline of costs involved on those pages. You must have your own racquet. Balls are provided for most of our programs and tournaments.

You do not need to be a member to participate in Vancouver International Pride tournament.

How are membership dues paid?

Membership is $50 per year for everyone.

New members can pay for a membership via the website. One of our volunteer team will email new members with further details and instructions on getting set up in our membership management app (called “Str8 Sets”, ironically) within 2-5 business days of completing purchase.

Existing members should renew and pay their membership fees via our Str8 Sets.

Payment and credit card information is securely handled by WooCommerce/Stripe on our website, and Stripe within Str8 Sets. More information on Stripe’s security.
