The Giraffe Club was originally founded to provide the Pros with a retirement fund. Now, the fund is used to support students playing Real Tennis at CURTC.
The Giraffe Club is open to everyone who wants to help our students to enjoy the game, to field phenomenal teams for the Varsity matches and to reach the dizzy heights of international success that we regularly see from Ed, Jamie et al!
In return for your generous contributions, the Giraffe Club offers you the opportunity to play with these student ambassadors in the annual pre-Varsity tournament, to support them in the Varsity matches and purchase tickets for the Varsity dinner in the Long Room at Lords, and to purchase all manner of Giraffe Club stash. There will be preferential seating available for Giraffe Club members at all key student matches held at CURTC. To round the year off, you will receive a copy of the annual newsletter, compiled by the two captains and brimming with match reports, photos and other student related activity.
There are four main membership categories:
Adult Member: £40/ year
Student/ U28 Member: £20/ year
