Membership is the core of the club and is required for athletes to compete at any level. There are a number of membership types and corresponding fees:

Joining Fee

There is a first time joining fee of £40 for all new members. Your club vest is included within this fee.

Annual Fee

The annual subscription fee is due on 1st. April each year and varies according to age as follows:

Seniors (19 years and over): £60.00
16-18 years: £40
11-15 years: £30

The club is able to offer reduced rates for those in full time education, non-active members and for one or more siblings.

The club annual fee DOES NOT include the England Athletics (EA) annual registration for athletes 11 or over which is currently set at £14 and is required for any athlete to compete in UKA events. The club will collect this fee and pass it on to England Athletics.


U23 athlete: £60+£14 = £74
U17 athlete: £40+£14 = £54

Track Fees

A track fee of £2.50 is payable for every session attended by each athlete.
