As noted at the Club’s AGM held on 22nd July 2021:-
Thank you to those whe were able to continue their memberships through the 2020-21 season in part or in full to help see our club through those difficult times. Hopefully we are through the worst of it and players are ceratinly itching to return to some normality for the upcoming 2021-22 season. Fees are being held for the 2021-22 season accordingly – the same prices for the third season in a row.
To that end we will be resuming our policy of ‘Don’t Pay – No Play’ and thank you in advance for your support of this policy.
Club membership runs from 1st August until 31st July (see note 1) and is the sum of the Club/Family Membership PLUS any relevant Playing Fees. See the examples link below.

Fee examples 2021-22
Note 1: For those joining the Club after 31 December each season, the membership and playing fees are half what would normally be due in a full season
Note 2A: Family membership includes a lead person anf their partner plus any of their children under 18 years of age at the start of the season (1st September) all of whom must be living at the same address. Anyone over 18 at the start of the season is expected to join the club in their own right.
Note 2B: This reduced fee for Social Membership has been introduced as a pilot to encourage retention of parents when their children stop playing. The membership excludes the lead person’s partner and their children. Note that this price is per adult, so if a family with 2 parents both wish to remain members after their children stop playing, then the family club membership would be more cost effective for them.
Note 3: Families with more than two players in the Youth and/or Mini sections only pay for the eldest two playing children (U5s-U18s)
** Please reach out to the Membership Secretary direct via email@example.com to add free membership to eligible players.
Note 4: Those paying the discounted rate must evidence their eligibility for the discount to their respective team manager.
