We meet at Bishopbriggs Academy on a Thursday nights (7pm-9.30pm) from September until March.
The club has historically had a policy of membership by invitation to try to keep the standard of players as high as possible and in the past, it was an adult only club with only juniors of a similar standard to the adults joining. We still run a policy for adult players interested in joining, where they are invited to attend as visitors for 4 weeks to allow them, and the club, to assess their suitability to the standard of play.
We have always strived, and still strive, to achieve a high standard and have been in the top divisions of the Strathclyde Leagues for many years and in the past attracted several international players. Currently we have mixed doubles teams in the 1st and 3rd divisions of the Strathclyde Leagues and also a Gents team in the 1st division.
However, in a bid to stimulate new blood, Hotspur are also opening their doors to junior members in the hope they will eventually move into the club’s senior ranks.
We wish to continue with the high standards but now recognize that to survive we must try to encourage and welcome junior players to join the new junior club which is aimed at 8 -18 year olds.
It is hoped that by encouraging junior players they will improve and progress into the adult club and continue the high standard of the club for the foreseeable future.
Fees for this season, 2018/19 are £50 per year for adults, £25 per year for those in full time education. There are no payments each night but for anyone playing in a match, there is a match fee of £5 per match or £2.50 per match for those in full time education. The visitor fees were £5 per visit.
The junior section continues to meet at Bishopbriggs Academy on a Thursday evening from 7pm till 9pm with a nightly fee of £2.
