Membership Discounts And Rewards

A variety of discounts and rewards are available for our membership rates. Members may apply multiple discounts depending on eligibility. Prompt payment of the full subscription renewal fee before the 1st May reduces the rate by £10. A Family group must include one or more Adult member and one or more Junior/Student/U25 Full member. A family discount applies if there are three or more family members living at the same address. Deduct £20 for each Full Adult member; other categories £10 per person. Affiliate members do not qualify for family discount.

There are rewards available for helping with the upkeep and operation of the club. Introducing a new full member is a £20 reward. £10 for other Adult playing members and £5 for each new Junior or Affiliate member are available also. The new members must not have been members within the last 5 years. Rewards will be pro rated where members join mid year, in line with the fees.
