An update to interclub payments

2022 has been a landmark year for Ōtaki Sports Club in so many ways — our club of the year award, amazing on court/field success in all our codes and heaps of new members. It’s a great time to be part of the best club on the coast!

Our rapidly expanding club and the awesome enthusiasm of our members means though the club is being used in innovative and exciting ways that our financial admin system is having trouble keeping up with!

Specifically our club’s senior fees structure.

Senior fees cover affiliation for just one sport and entry into just one competition in a sport (for tennis and football. Currently there are no interclub competition fees in squash). The remainder of your fee goes to rates, insurance, grounds lease, maintenance and cleaning, power, etc.

We have increasing numbers of members now, though, playing multiple competitions and often in more than one sport.

Each time a member plays an additional sport competitively, the club has to pay their extra affiliation fee (e.g squash and tennis: approx $60; higher for football), and where relevant extra competition fees (e.g tennis: $40-50).

Our current fee structure doesn’t cover that.

To ensure the club can cover costs, as from 2023 we will be communicating with players who play in multiple competitions and/or more than one sport (in competition) to explain the extra fees they will need to pay.

Any questions, please reach out.

2023 looks set to be another awesome year competition-wise for the club and our three codes are working hard to get everything in place for you. Have an awesome summer break and see you back on court and pitch in the new year.
