Dear …………………,

Sample Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to inquire about becoming a member of your sports club. My primary motivation for joining this club is to be physically fit and active.

I came to know about your place through a public awareness campaign that took place around the city, which was conducted to encourage individuals to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

In regards to sports, I am highly interested in playing basketball at your club. I am quite excited about joining a basketball team at your facility and competing against other teams. Additionally, I have a strong desire to learn how to swim. When I inquired about the swimming classes at your organisation, I received very positive feedback on them. Although I had never swum before, it gave me a lot of confidence to start taking swimming classes under the supervision and guidance of a trainer from your academy.

I would appreciate it if you could share additional information on the membership plans that are available to new customers.

Yours sincerely,
Fifty Geeks
