Badminton and Racquet Club of Toronto (B&R)

The arrangement involve 12 “floating” leased memberships and each leased membership entitled four individuals restricted access to the golf course. Each individual had a maximum of 10 games per year with limited guest privileges. Eighteen (18) B&R members took advantage of this arrangement and they thoroughly enjoyed their time at the Club. The average number of rounds played by B&R members was six and they generated $445 per round of golf to the Club. 

The Marketing Committee has reviewed the program and recommended that the Board consider extending this relationship for the 2008 season for the following reasons:

i)  The objectives of the program are more from a ‘value-add’ perspective for new and existing Scarboro
     members, rather than securing new members directly from the program
ii)  B&R has offered more and better access to racquet and fitness facilities during the winter months
      for Scarboro members
iii) Last season, B&R members contributed in excess of $48,000 in revenues from all sources; and
iv)  One season was not sufficient to test the program; developing a relationship over a longer period
      may result in new members (for both clubs) and more revenues; it is intended to review
      the program annually

The Board has approved extending the Scarboro/B&R connection for the 2008 season. The program will be similar to last year but with improved access the B&R facilities over the winter period:

·  12 “floating” leased memberships 
·  Each floating leased membership entitles four individuals restricted access to the golf course to a
   maximum of 48 persons
·  Each individual has a maximum of 10 games per year with limited guest privileges
·  Use of our clubhouse and practice facilities
·  This program is offered from May to October only and will be reviewed by both Clubs at the
   conclusion of the golf season

 In return, the B&R Club is offering Scarboro members the following (fee of $220 per month):

    must complete the B&R fitness consultation and orientation by B&R Fitness Centre Staff
