Applying for membership

We welcome new members. If you wish to join the club, or would like your child or children to join the club, please first speak to one of our coaches at the track. We will then arrange a brief induction which will normally take place before one of our regular Tuesday or Thursday training sessions.

Please note that it is a condition of membership that club members should be prepared to compete for the club when requested to do so. All 'first-claim' members aged 11 and over will be registered, at the club's expense, as licensed, competing athletes with England Athletics, the national governing body for athletics.

The club's membership year runs from 1 April to 31 March. The normal subscriptions are reduced for people joining late in the club year. Members joining in the third quarter of the club year, from 1 October and 31 December, pay a fee of 50% of the normal subscription. Members joining in the fourth quarter of the club year, from 1 January to 31 March, pay the full subscription but get the following 12 months of membership free. Note that in both cases the requirement of a joining fee of £5 per member and £15 for a club vest remains the same.

Application forms for membership may be downloaded below. Note that only payments by cheque are accepted.
