IMPORTANT NOTICE - COVID-19 AND SUBSCRIPTIONS:
The fee levels set out in the table below are our current subscription rates. However, due to the effects which Covid-19 has had on our ability to make our playing facilities available to members, the Club put in place an emergency arrangement based on pay-per-play for May - July inclusive. All members were asked to pay a flat £20 fee, plus £1 per hour per person when playing bowls, cricket or tennis.
Beyond July, summer sport members (primary sports Cricket, Tennis or Bowls) will be asked to pay 50% of the usual annual subscription to cover the period May 2020-May 2021 with the remainder collected in 3 instalments by Direct Debit in August, September and October 2020. The pay to play arrangement will cease with effect from 1 August 2020.
This means those members who have already paid £20 will pay their normal subscription, less 50%, less £20. For example, a single member would pay:
£214 less 50% = £107
£107 less £20 = £87
£87 / 3 = £29 in each of August, September and October
If you wish to join the Club as a cricket, bowls or tennis member, this arrangement will apply to you in place of normal subscriptions. Please note that new members will not receive an additional 50% discount this season; they will be subject to the arrangement set out above.
|Adults||Non-playing||Bowls Only||All/Any Sports|
|Single||£20||£101||£214 (£107 1st year)|
|Joint||£20||£87||£214 (£107 1st year)|
|Senior Citizen (65+)||£20||£58||£58|
|Juniors (age at start of membership year)||All/Any Sports|
|Junior, aged 13-18||£99|
|Junior, aged 12 or under||£82|
Subscriptions are generally payable by Direct Debit.
When joining, each member must indicate a 'primary' sport which will denote the start and end of their subscription year. For non-playing members and summer sports (Cricket, Tennis and Bowls) the subscription year runs from 1 May - 1 May. For winter sports (Hockey, Lacrosse and Squash) the subscription year runs from 1 October to 1 October.
For sporting members, direct debits are collected in 6 equal instalments over the course of the season. This means that, for summer sport members, collections will be on or around: 1 May, 1 June, 1 July, 1 August, 1 September and 1 October. For winter sport members, collections will be on or around 1 October, 1 November, 1 December, 1 January, 1 February and 1 March.
An instalment will only be more than 1/6th of the annual subscription if:
- a previous collection has been missed for some reason; or
- a member joins part way through a season. In this instance, the Club may pro-rate the subscription to cover the period between the date of joining and the start of the next subscription year.
For non-playing (social) members, subscriptions are collected in one lump sum on or around 1 May (or the first day of the month after a member joins).
The Club's family membership is designed to ensure that no family comprising one or more parents with children, all of whom are living in the same household, pay more than twice the full adult subscription in any year. In most cases, this means families in which two adults in the same household each pay the full annual subscription are entitled to enrol their children for free until they reach the age of 18.
To take advantage of this offer, please complete our online application and choose 'Family' membership.
If a parent (or parents) are already members or if an additional child is to be added to an existing family membership, please complete a new online application for membership but follow up your online application with an email to the membership secretary (at the address below) to confirm the relevant details.
When junior members join the Club, we collect emergency contact and medical information through our membership application form in order to enable Club officials better to respond to accidents or incidents.
This information is then made available to captains and coaches for use in case of emergencies.
We ask parents/guardians periodically to update this information and re-confirm certain consents. These requests are issued by email and contain instructions on how to respond. However, the form which we use to collect updates and re-confirm consents may also be accessed by clicking here.
All members should note the following policies and codes of conduct before joining.
By joining, members indicate their acceptance of these policies and codes.
Each sport ('Section') of the Club has its own officer who is responsible for membership. These
officers assist the Membership Secretary with the administration of club membership and should be a member or prospective member's first point of contact for any queries. The current Sectional Membership Officers are:
