Membership payments are the lifeblood of our club: like most rugby clubs, we are a non-profit-making organisation and we rely on income from memberships, sponsorship, and bar/events to keep the club alive and functional. All the money we receive is spent on running the club, and keeping children and adults playing, watching and experiencing rugby in as many ways as we can provide. Apart from all the costs of running the clubhouse (just like your home, only much more expensive!!) we also need to keep our 130 volunteers DBS checked, trained in coaching and first aid, hire the pitches from the Council (they do not belong to us), pay for referees, pay for physio/First Aid provision, post-match food for children and adults.....the list goes on forever!
We can’t thank you enough for investing in membership of the club: it is crucial for our continued successful operation.
Membership fees can be paid through this website (click on the drop down under "membership information" tab above), via the RFU Game Management System (GMS), or via the club (at the bar).
