Benefits of membership

Membership is available to any potential athlete/official/coach over the age of 8 years and provides for both sexes in all age groups. The Membership fee to the Club represents good value for money and remains very competitive against other athletic clubs and other local sports clubs.

It should be noted that annual subscriptions represent 70% of the Clubs’ annual income, which is used for the ‘day to day’ operation of the Club and the improvement of our facilities.
