Our current sporting season is shortly coming to a close on 31 March and we hope that you have enjoyed playing throughout the year even though the weather has not been too kind of late.

The purpose of this email is to confirm the membership rates for the coming year and outline the membership renewal process for the coming year, as approved by the board.

We will be using the ClubSpark renewals process for membership renewals and each of you will get a specific email to action your renewal, with full details of what to do, how to pay and with a unique link to access your ClubSpark account.

Many of you are already ClubSpark users but for those that aren't the system is accessible through the club's website and we will provide detailed steps and guidance to make it as painless as possible.

As in recent years we are strongly encouraging all members to utilise the online renewal process and to pay using bank transfer.   We will of course assist all members who are not in a position to renew or pay online.   If you have already prepaid for the coming year you should not receive anything further but if you do please let us know.
