Membership Registration Form
To sign up for BATTS membership, a registration form is needed. Paper copies of the form are available as well as an online version that is included on the BATTS website's Membership page.
What information does it collect?
The membership form asks for the following information:
- Full name
- Date of birth
- Phone Number
- Secondary phone number (in case of an emergency)
- Email address
The parent/carer/guardian of Juniors are also required to provide:
- their full name
- their child's school or college
Members are asked whether they give permission for photo/video content to be taken of them, or their child if the member is under 18. See the section below for details.
We collect this information for use in club operations. These include to communicate with members and staff via our club channels: email, direct contact through telephone calls and SMS, in case of an emergency to contact the member's or staff's parent/carer/guardian or secondary contact or simply to improve our services. For example, because we have relationships with local schools, we're able to identify the school's in which our Juniors attend. This gives us an indication of what areas we could expand. Collecting date of birth allows us to manage the club's membership categories, events and initiatives that are age related.
BATTS Table Tennis Club is proudly affiliated to Table Tennis England (our sport's governing body) as a Premier Club. As part of club membership registration, and to fulfil our requirements as a Premier Club, all BATTS members must register for Table Tennis England membership too. Table Tennis England's website explains the different types of membership and the benefits that are offered as part of it.
Like BATTS, Table Tennis England collects information from its members upon initial registration, which is stored within Table Tennis England's internal systems. You should see Table Tennis England's website for more details on how they use and process member's data. It is important to note that when someone registers for Table Tennis England's membership, they are asked to identify the clubs and leagues which they attend and/or play for. If 'BATTS Table Tennis Club (Essex - 2009)' is selected as a club, then the member's TTE information is automatically shared with BATTS. We are then able to see the status of each member's Table Tennis England membership which would be required when organising a tournament at BATTS, for example, in entering teams into one of Table tennis England's formats such as the British League or National Junior and Cadet Leagues.
