Students and PhD students can both join our club for just €30,- a year or €25,- for half a year. This membership gives you the right to join our lessons, tournaments, the weekly racket evenings, activities and the right to represent our club during the regional/national competition. Also, when you become a member of Walhalla, you immediately become a member of the Royal Dutch Tennis Bond (KNLTB), which gives you the opportunities to join open tournaments at other tennis clubs as well.
Moreover, you can become member of Walhalla when you don’t want to play tennis, but rather want to enjoy all other amazing parties, club-evenings and non-tennisrelated activities. These members will not become a member of the Royal Dutch Tennis Bond (KNLTB), and can therefore not play tennis at our courts, neither take part in trainings and racket evenings. The price for this membership is €20,- for a year. Obtaining sports rights at Sports Centre ‘De Bongerd’ is not obligatory for those members.

Graduated and then?
Did you become a member of Walhalla during your student days and do you want to stay a member of Walhalla after graduation? This is possible, though under different conditions then students. When your graduation is coming up, you can claim sport rights for first-year graduate in the upcoming month September. Please refer to the Sports Centre ‘De Bongerd’ for pricing (click here).
If you are not using the other facilities of the Sports Centre, Walhalla offers its graduates a special offer in coorporation with the ‘regular’ tennis association, the NVLTB. For a price of ~€130,- you become a member of both associations, which means you can still use all 14 NVLTB-courts and Walhalla related activities (with training at Walhalla as the one exception, since those are subsidized by the Sports Centre. You should take trainings at the NLVTB). Please contact our secretary once your graduation is coming up!
PhD students have the opportunity to become a member of Walhalla. They are required to buy an association card (for more information click here). After promoting, AIO’s and OIO’s can buy an association card by the SCB for a certain price, which gives them the opportunity to be a member of Walhalla for one more year.
For certain types of PhD-contracts, buying student sports rights is not possible. Please refer to the ‘Graduation’ section for your membership.
We hope that we have provided you with enough information of how to become a member/stay a member. But if you still have questions, don’t hesitate to ask them to our secretary (email@example.com).
If you do not want to be a member of G.T.C. Walhalla anymore, you should contact the secretary of Walhalla (firstname.lastname@example.org). The secretary will unsubscribe you from the association. Do this before the start of the new academic year (1st of September), or else you will have to pay contribution for next half-a-year.
