Membership Information

New Members

Prospective new members are invited to contact the club at any point throughout the year either by telephone, email or in person. We have an Open Day where coaches and current members will meet and greet you and show you around the club. Coaching courses are available to allow you to give it a try before committing to purchase a membership.

Existing Members

Once we know when the club is going to open, existing members will be invited to renew their subscription, and a renewal form will be posted on this website. 

Junior Members

Concessions are available for both membership (currently £20) and for match fees. You must be under 25 on 1st October, produce identification (eg. student union card) and be in full time education). 

Visitors

Visitors are welcome. They must be signed in. It is as the name suggests: " visitor". Therefore if you wish to frequent the club more than a few times, you should become a social member.
