Letter Writing # 312 - You would like to join a sports centre

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You have recently moved to a new neighbourhood and would like to join a sports centre there. You have found a private sports club.

Write a letter to the manager of the sports club. In your letter,

  • introduce yourself
  • say why are you interested in this sports club
  • ask some questions about the club e.g facilities, membership, costs etc.

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,


Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Carl Puran, and I have recently moved to the neighbourhood of Old Spandau. I am writing this letter to get some information about your sports centre.

I have been either a member of a sports club or gym wherever I have lived because you can say, I am very health conscious. So, after moving into this new neighbourhood, naturally, I felt the need to join a sports club or gym; and then found out about your sports club which is located very near where I live. Apart from this convenient distance, I would like to join your club also because the majority of the members of this club are of my age, or at least, that is what I have heard. So it would be easier for me to relate to them or befriend a few of them. But, most importantly, your sports club remains open during the weekends also when I usually have more time to enjoy the club activities. 

But, before I join your club, I have a couple of questions. Does the club have any children’s playground since I would bring my child with me also, sometimes? And, how much is the cost of membership? 

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Carl Puran
