You can join a match using the I’m in functionality on our website (via Client Access) or using the Stratford Padel Club app. To join matches, you need to have a player rating from us, ratings are allocated by our coaches and are not based on self-assesssment.
When you book your starter package with us, you get a 30min coaching session and we assess your level. We will then allocate a rating and place you in the right player group, so you can interact with fellow players of similar level and start playing. We assess each player’s level every 6 months.
If you’re in town for a short period of time, you can still come and play as a non-member. If you are in town for more than a month, it’s worth considering the monthly direct debit membership to benefit from discounts. However, if you want to join matches with others, we suggest you take up the Starter package to get a player rating and benefit from discounts.
You can cancel any booking free of charge with more than 24h notice. However, we will charge you the price of your booking for any cancellations within 24h.
