Your Passport to Individual Club Member Benefits

Did you get your Club OTA member card yet?  When your club joins the OTA, the club executive get a supply of these cards which identify the OTA club of which you are a member and a unique personal identification code.  Some clubs are using these cards instead of shoe tags to prove membership.....others distribute cards to members at registration or at the club house, so if you registered online or paid by mail you may have to pick up your card at your club.........and yes, for those of you who are tied to your smart phones, very soon there’ll be an app for that!

So hopefully now you have your card. Next you need to go to web site scroll down the home page until you find the image of the card and register yourself online.  There you will find a list of offers for you to use as you choose.  There will be discounts on Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment tickets (for Toronto F.C. and Raptors), there will be special OTA member offers for Rogers Cup tickets and there will a discount offer from Merchant of Tennis and other OTA sponsors and there will be several contests for you to enter and become the lucky winner of merchandise and OTA wear.

If your club so chooses it can also work with local merchants and service providers to use the Club OTA card for identification for benefits and discounts as a form of sponsorship. 

OTA Member Appreciation Day at the Merchant of Tennis is coming on Saturday May 30th  this year at both the Bayview Ave and Oakville locations. Why not use your Club OTA card to get rapid service and obtain your goody bag without having to fill out a form.

The first deals for this year are being added to the web site on May 18th. Make sure you get your card and register soon to take advantage and encourage your club friends to use their cards and to subscribe to SPIN. The more people who use the card, the better the offers the OTA will be able to negotiate for you.
