  • Certain other information which you volunteer when making use of your membership benefits (for example, when making court bookings or making use of other Club facilities).


We may also collect data about your health or medical conditions, where you have volunteered this, for example so that we can cater for you when you attend a Club social event or a course/camp.

  • Fulfilment of orders for goods and services, including court bookings;

  • Communication about our Club activities that we think may be of interest to you;

The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make your website visit more targeted, e.g. we use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These will be deleted automatically after leaving our site. In addition, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your end device for a specified period of time to optimize website user-friendliness.

Social Media Plugins

We use social plug-ins of the social networks Facebook and Twitter on our website on the basis of Art. 6 §1 of the GDPR in order to raise the awareness of our Club. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. Responsibility for data protection-compliant operation must be guaranteed by the respective provider.

The integration of these plug-ins by us takes place in the way of the so-called two-click method in order to protect our website visitors in the best possible way.

Protection of Junior Members (under 18years of age)

It is in the legitimate interest of the Club to be able to store the personal data of junior members, in order to fulfill the purposes of the Club. However, in order to protect the interests of junior members we also require the personal data, including contact and financial information held in respect of the junior member to be those of a parent or guardian.

No personal data, including images relating to the junior member, will be shared with any other Club members or third parties without the prior informed consent of a parent or guardian of the junior member, other than the age category of the junior member and the membership number to BTM and/or England Squash, in so far as is necessary for the legitimate interests of the Club.

Your marketing preferences

We will always respect your wishes in respect of what type of communications you want to receive from us and how you want to receive them. There are some communications, however, that we need to send you regardless of your marketing preferences in order for us to fulfil our contractual obligations to you as a member of our Club. Examples of these essential service communications are:

  • Records of transactions, such as payment receipts or Direct Debit confirmations (as applicable).

  • Membership related mailings such as your membership renewal reminder, notices of formal meetings and information about Club/court closures and holiday opening hours.


You are in control of how we communicate with you. You can update your choices and/or your contact details by contacting us at:

  • Telephone: 07882 924994

  • Email:

  • Post: The Administrator, Chesham 1879 LT & SC, Pednormead End, Chesham, Bucks. HP5 2JU.


Sharing your information with others

We do not sell or share your personal data for other organisations to use other than as set out below.

Personal data collected and processed by us may be shared with the following third parties, where necessary:

  • Our employees and volunteers, for the purposes of administering your membership and giving you access to the membership benefits to which you are entitled.

  • Our contractors and suppliers, including coaches and any provider of membership management services.

  • National, regional or county sports bodies governing tennis, squash and squash 57.

  • Other Club members through the online booking system to contact you or arrange matches. The parents/guardians of junior members, (who may not be themselves members) will have access to the same online booking system to arrange matches/courses for junior members or to contact coaches.


How long your information is kept

We keep your personal data only for as long as necessary for each purpose we use it. For most membership data, this means we retain it for so long as you have a valid Club membership and for a period of six years after your last interaction with us (for accounting, tax reporting and record-keeping purposes).

Your rights

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

  • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).

  • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.

  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it. You can also withdraw your consent, where this is the basis for our processing your data (without affecting the lawfulness of our previous processing based on consent).

  • Request the transfer of your personal data to another party.


Please note that the above rights are not absolute, and we may be entitled to refuse requests where exceptions apply.

Changes to our privacy policy

The Club may update this privacy policy from time to time at the Club’s sole discretion. Any updates will be posted to our website along with a notice of the change.
