Joining Fees

All new Members pay a one-off joining fee along with their annual subscription. The joining fee for 2017 is currently £600.

Change of Membership Category

An additional joining fee is payable by members transferring from one category of Membership to another e.g. 5 Day to Full. On transfer the difference between the current joining fees for the old and the new categories is payable.

Standard Loan

All new Full Playing and 5 Day members are invited to take out a Loan (repayable on resignation or death) of £500 payable in a lump sum. Members who make the loan receive an annual credit against subscription. For 2016 the credit is 4% of the loan (£20.00). This percentage is reviewed annually.

Part Year Subscriptions

The subscription payable will be on a pro-rata basis, related to the 1st of the month in which the Member joins.

Young Members

Young Members pay a joining fee of £25.00 but will be required to pay a proportion of the full joining fee at the membership renewal following their 30th birthday. The amount payable (if any) will depend on length of membership at the time of transfer. They will also be invited to subscribe to a Loan on transfer.


The normal method of payment is by Direct Debit and all new members (other than juniors) are expected to pay by this method. Monthly payment option is over a minimum of 10 instalments from February to November, subject to an administration charge which is currently 3.5%.


Social Members' Joining Fees and Subscriptions are subject to VAT at the appropriate rate. There is no VAT on Loans.
