Subscriptions Policy 2011/12

Senior Players and Students

Subscription fees for playing members are set annually by the Club Committee, and are currently £240 per year. They will ideally be paid by monthly bank transfer. Students are entitled to a 50% discount, and for any player who will only play a few games the club may agree to a pay per game option.

Payment Methods

Monthly bank transfer 12 equal instalments from October to September. If a player starts payments mid way through a season then all fees due up to that point must be paid, however the club may agree to equal instalments for the number of months remaining until September.
1 or 2 Instalments Alternatively payment can be made in full on 1st October, or in two equal instalments payable on 1st October and the date of the first game in January.
Pay Per Game For any player expecting to play substantially fewer than all scheduled matches the club may agree to a pay per game option. This includes an initial payment of 50%, payable on 1st October. The player will then pay an additional Match Fee for each match in which they play, calculated as 50% divided by the number of matches available during the season.

A reduction in the number of available matches due to circumstances beyond the control of the club will be disregarded for the purposes of these calculations.
