Dear Members,

As we begin a new year, we are honored to welcome Walnut Creek, Danville, Pleasanton, Fremont, and Oregon into the Bay Club family. For 20+ years, ClubSport members have experienced first-class amenities and programs at their club, and we look forward to continuing that same level of experience for years to come. We are grateful for this opportunity and excited to get to know you better.

As with any change, we recognize that you may have questions or concerns, so we wanted to take a moment to address those first.

Your Membership, Monthly Dues and Access
We understand that your membership is an important part of your routine, so rest assured that your membership and access will remain the same. Similarly, the amenities and programs the clubs offer, including the wonderful childcare services you experience every day, will also remain the same. And you’ll still see the same friendly faces around the club—we’ve offered positions to all club-level staff at their same role and compensation effective January 1, 2019.

In addition, your monthly dues will remain the same for the next three months. On April 1, 2019, expect to receive an increase of approximately 5% which is in line with the annual increases you’ve experienced as a member. We look forward to investing this back into the clubs and bringing new and innovative amenities with your valuable feedback.

What’s Next?
We look forward to learning more about the day to day operation of the clubs, as well as the programs and services that make the clubs special to members and associates. Our goal is to listen and gather feedback over the next 90 days and understand any areas we can improve and invest in before making any changes. Look for opportunities to meet members of our management team throughout the first quarter so that we can get to know each other better.

We also want to give you the opportunity to get to know the Bay Club better, so we’ve extended complimentary reciprocal access to all Bay Club locations through the month of January. Simply, present your digital membership card and ID upon arrival. For full details, please see our list of FAQs. With clubs throughout the Bay Area, including Marin, San Francisco, the Peninsula, Silicon Valley, and San Jose, as well as a strong position in Southern California, we hope that our first-class amenities and offerings will complement your current membership experience.

On behalf of the Bay Club, I would like to say thank you for allowing us to welcome you into our family. We look forward to serving you for years to come.

 

All the Best,
