The Joining Process

To help you decide whether or not the club meets your needs, we welcome you to join as a prospective member. Membership for prospective members is free for the first 3 meets, or for 3 months, whichever is sooner, and includes only limited access to the club website. If you'd like to attend one of our meets, please follow the online registration process and then visit our events calendar to book your place.

If you've already decided the club meets your needs then you can join outright as a full member. Once your application has been accepted, you will become a member. You will be sent a membership card, the latest copy of the newsletter (including a directory of club members) and will also be granted full access to the website. If joining online, full access will be granted immediately.
