TTE INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIP 2016/7
Here are some guidelines on the IM procedure for 2016/7. This is TTE's Individual Membership scheme, which you need to follow in order to become a registered player - you are then nationally registered and can play anywhere. The fee levels are: juniors £6, seniors £12. Licences (only needed by players regularly taking part in Open Tournaments) are £17 and £34 respectively. ASSOCIATE members, i.e. those who do not play competitively, are now FREE, yet will still enjoy the benefits of membership, including Public Liability insurance.
Go to the TTE web-site at http://tabletennisengland.co.uk. Click on Membership, or go to: http://tabletennisengland.co.uk/play/membership. Then: “Click here to log in to the Membership Portal”. You have to proceed either as an existing or as a new member. If you’re an existing member, your details will already be on the system from last year, so you must RENEW your registration, not set up a new one. You will need to enter your ID (membership number) and your password, but the system does allow for those who have forgotten either or both of these. If you are a new member, follow click here to register.
At the bottom of the form, there is an ORGANISATIONS section, asking you to nominate both your club and your league from drop-down menus. All BANBURY and OXFORD clubs are now listed on the drop-down menu, but none from DIDCOT, for which go to "my club is not listed" and add it. You need to quote BANBURY, OXFORD or DIDCOT as your league. This is particularly important for players already registered with TTE, who are new to Oxfordshire. We have no way of accessing any of your data, unless you nominate one of our leagues.
Those who do not wish to register on-line should phone TTE on 01908 208898 or 0845 0500 388 and pay with a debit/credit card – this is a simple process. A further option is to pay by post to TTE, but this may take them a few weeks to process!
If you have any problems with any of this, please contact your club secretary or league data-base administrator.
Deadlines: all players must be registered with TTE in order to take part in league matches. On-line registration is recorded on our data-bases instantaneously, but payment by phone may be subject to a delay of up to 10 days, while any postal applications might take a good deal longer.
