Member Letter from Sports Core Director

February 4, 2015

Dear Member,

Thank you for supporting the club throughout this past year. As the new season approaches, we offer you a first look at what is being planned for 2015.  Once again we are making the club brochure available on our website, It contains all the traditional information, gives access to current events and news, and provides the ability to download registration forms. We hope you find access to pertinent information is easier than ever. Please contact myself or Michelle Hrody our Membership Coordinator at 630.368.6424 if you need additional information or a question answered. 

Attached is your 2015 membership dues commitment form. Please review the information for accuracy, make any needed corrections, and then return the signed form with your annual payment.  Your prompt attention will be appreciated. Please note that once payment is received, your membership cards from last season will be activated. There is no need to come in and get a new picture taken.

  • The “Early Bird” discount continues this year and applies to Unlimited Memberships. A discount of $100.00 ($50.00 for Seniors) is offered for fees paid prior to Friday, May 8. Or, $110.00 ($55.00 Seniors) if paid by March 14.
  • Continued partnership with the Oak Brook Park District – If your family has the combo Premiere Fitness & Aquatics membership or a Racquet Club membership you will receive a 10% discount off your B&T Family membership.

All of us hope you understand the necessity for this change in our program and will embrace it.

Do you have any friends thinking of joining the Bath & Tennis Club?  Again for this year, we will be asking new members who referred them to us.  If that happens to be you, we will credit your house account $50 for any unlimited family memberships and $25 for any unlimited individual memberships.  We know your opinion is valuable; this program gives us a way to show you our appreciation.

Should you have any questions or comments regarding the 2015 season at the Bath & Tennis Club, please feel free to contact me via e-mail at [email protected] or by phone at 630.368.6402.
