Racquet Buddies

Memberships & Rewards

At Racquet Buddies, we know how important it is for our Buddies to be motivated and engaged at class. We have a system in place that helps them to focus and also feel a sense of pride and achievement.

Each year, an annual membership for Racquet Buddies is paid. This covers the cost of the Racquet Buddies t-shirt for the year, a Racquet Buddies water bottle, a reward chart, weekly stamps and t-shirt transfers which are applied every 10 weeks the children attend class. The annual membership is determined by when children join:

  • August – October: £50
  • October – December: £40
  • January – April: £30
  • April – July: £25
