We encourage the whole family to join at the same time whenever possible – children may join, within a family group, from age five – otherwise they must be over ten. The application process is designed to ensure that prospective new members are acquainted with the Club facilities and have had the opportunity to meet members with similar interests to their own before joining. We always aim to be as welcoming and helpful as possible.
Membership categories are grouped into various price bands which take account of different circumstances including age, distance living away from the Club and number of people in household. Those aged over 65 (after 3 years membership) or under 30 can enjoy subscriptions at a reduced rate.
We also have an outport membership category for those who live a distance away from the Club (defined by postcodes) for more than eight months of the year. Family membership means that only one subscription is payable for all the children in the household aged between 7 and 18.
