CLUB MEMBERSHIP

The Club has an annual membership fee of R300 per annum which falls due in January of each year. This fee is the same regardless of single or family membership. As the membership runs according to the calendar year, there is an appropriate reduction applied at the start of the second, third and fourth quarters. Club membership fees are due immediately on joining the Club and must be accompanied by a completed membership form which may either be downloaded below or obtained from our secretary. We offer one session of free training on a Saturday as a trial for which there is a required indemnity form available from the Secretary. Should you decide to take out membership you must complete and submit a membership application before any further training can take place. Membership fees are not refundable should you choose to leave the Club during the year.
