Auckland table tennis stadium fees increases - from 1st September, 2014

The Management Committee of the Auckland Table Tennis Association has reviewed the current fees for stadium keyholder memberships, clubs, table hire, and other activities. It has been decided to increase fees from 1st September, 2014. This decision was not taken lightly and takes into account increasing costs for the Association in general, particularly those relating to utilities, stadium maintenance, insurance costs, and development initiatives. 

It has been decided to increase stadium keyholder membership fees from 1st September, 2014 to the following: 
Senior stadium keyholder membership: $525 per annum
Student / Veteran stadium keyholder membership: $400 per annum
Note that the last increase in stadium keyholder membership fees took effect in January 2009. The refundable key deposit will remain at $20.
The Management Committee is offering the opportunity for current stadium keyholder members to renew their membership for an additional year at the present rate (Senior $475, Student/Veteran $360) if the renewal takes place prior to 1st September, 2014. This can be done in advance of when the stadium keyholder membership sub is due. 
In addition, from 1st September, 2014 table hire and Club fees will be instituted as follows:
Table Hire: $15 per table per hour
Bat Hire: $2.50 per bat
Central Club: $10 per night 
Interclub team fee: $40 per season
Interclub night fee: $10 per night
Friday Night Club: $10 per night
Day Club: to be advised
Korean Club: to be advised

We trust that everyone understands the necessity of these fee increases.
