‘Friends go Free’ is a simple yet effective initiative for your Club which encourages you to open your doors and allow existing members to bring a friend for free. What could be easier?!
The flexibility of the programme from England Squash & Racketball will allow you to tailor the offer to meet your Clubs needs. As an ESR affiliated Club we will provide you with posters and leaflets which promote the programme. We’ve attached a generic PDF of the poster and signup sheet for you to use but remember get back to us by the 19th December and we’ll personalise them free of charge!
Very simply we recommend that you decide on date(s) between the 14th January and 12th February 2012 that you will run the initiative and highlight these on the calendar printed on your posters. Why not make a real event of it and organise some beginner coaching, exhibition matches or evening entertainment to really make your potential new members welcome.
This is a real chance to boost membership numbers and court usage – whether you need more juniors or adults, more squash or racketball players or more people to play in the week or at the weekend – you make this offer fit into the needs of your Club.
We’re about to email all our members to let them know about the scheme too, so that will help get the message out and encourage them to bring a friend to your Club.
Good luck…just let your ESR Regional Manager (click here for their details) know ASAP that you’d like to be a part of it and they’ll provide you with everything you need – they’ll even lend you some equipment for the day if you need it!
All we ask is if you would like to be involved with the scheme then please could you record all guest details on the signup sheet so that we can contact them following the programme and evaluate its success. We will also seek your feedback to.
Don’t forget…email your Regional Office by the 19th December for your personalised Club posters!
