Applying for Membership

Full Membership of the Club is open to adults over the age of 18.

Junior Membership is available to the children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews of Full Members.

Our preferred process is for applicants to apply online and be proposed and seconded by two existing Full Members, who have been members of the Club for at least a year. However, if you do not know two existing members, please contact our Membership Team who will be able to assist you.

Once we receive a fully completed application you will be placed on the waiting list. Currently, you should anticipate waiting around nine to twelve months to reach the top of the list. This time will be shorter if you are the child or partner of an existing member.

Once your application reaches the top of the waiting list, it will be reviewed by our Elections Committee, who may invite you in for a short meeting as part of their assessment of your application.
