Club Rules

1. Membership Fees
Membership £24.00 per month.
Affiliation fees are £30.00 for over 18 years, £17.80 for under 18 years.

Membership and Affiliation are non-refundable and are used to pay for the affiliation fees for the AENA. These fees will therefore be set at the level of the fee payable to the governing body.

Subscriptions are non-refundable but may be suspended in the event of injury or under other special circumstances at the discretion of the committee. It is the responsibility of each member to cancel her standing order in the event of long term illness/injury, pregnancy or upon leaving the Club.

Any member who falls one month behind with their subs shall receive a letter as a reminder and will be asked to pay within 7 days of receipt of the letter. Failure to do so may result in the suspension of the netballing activities of that member until such time as their subs are paid up to date.

The subscription shall be decided each year at the AGM.

New members
New members donít have to pay a monthly standing order straightaway. The first practice is always free. Then, if new members want to join the club the membership fee is £24.00 per month. 

2. Team Selections
Selections will be made by the selectors based on Ability, Compatibility and Attendance at Practices.
