Current participants enrolled in Master Tennis Academy (MTA) lessons are given priority for the next term. All participants are automatically re-enrolled for the following term – in the same class on the same day at the same time (unless advised before the start of the term). However, to confirm the enrollment, payment must be made by the due date. If you do not wish to continue lessons, please let us know as soon as possible.
PLEASE NOTE: If payment is not received by the due date, your place in the program may be lost.
Current participants are required to re-enroll each year so we can update your details. If you need to change days please contact the Director prior to re-enrolling.
MTA strongly suggests allowing flexibilty for students to be placed in the right group based on ability. At all stages we will endeavour to have kids similar standard and where possible age as well. If a participant would benefit from moving to a different level, they will be contacted to discuss the options. Ability is the main reason for group change rather than age.
Once payment has been received your place will be confirmed in the program. Your selected spot is held for you, so if you require a change of day or time for the next term, please let MTA know prior to the payment due date. accommodate your preferred options, however should all classes be full, then you must remain with the original day and time.
Payments And Refunds Policy
Full payment is required by the start of the new term. If the terms of the account exceed 7 days from the Invoice Payment Due Date, a $10 late payment fee will apply.
