The Club automatically takes care of annual renewals for Members who have renewed their Club Membership promptly (i.e. by end-September), via the RFU's Rugby First facility.

New and lapsed Members will need to complete RFU Registration Forms. The RFU has become much stricter about re-registration. This makes it all the more important to renew your annual membership promptly.

So, what do I actually need to do!?

Board members are in the clubhouse every Sunday morning in September, to receive forms and fees (cash, card or cheque), welcome new players, and answer questions -- and usually every Sunday through the season (if in doubt, ask at the bar).

You can also renew and register early, through the off-season, when the Clubhouse is open Tuesday and Thursday evenings as well as other times. Make contact in advance if you want to be sure someone will be there.

  • Forms can be handed in and membership paid at the Bar in the Clubhouse.
