Different Types of Membership Available

We are a not-for profit club, and our membership subscriptions are set at the level needed just to cover the cost of the club’s facilities.

The Club’s membership year runs from 1st April, and membership lasts for 12 months.

If you join after 1st September there is a 50% reduction on the annual subscription.

In 2020, the Club heavily discounted its membership subscriptions because of the restrictions and uncertainties caused by the pandemic.   However, this meant that in 2020 the Club wasn’t able to cover all of its costs and we therefore need to re-set our subscription levels back to the pre-pandemic levels.  

The table below explains the different types of membership available:
