Membership subs & racking fees - 2019

Membership of the club is open to all. Membership application forms are available to download below. They should be completed as signed hard copies and sent to the Membership Secretary at the club (the address is on the form). We do not allow any new members to go on the water unless a form has been received and checked.

We now operate subscriptions on a calendar year basis, any increases being applicable from 1 January (though a change in subs mid 2019 is possible).
We prefer to receive subs by monthly standing order on the first of the month - a form for your bank is downloadable below or you can use the same details to do it online. We can accept payment by cheque for a year in advance. We normally allow new starters a couple of sessions free to allow you to decide if the club is for you.

Please note we now require new members who wish to row at a senior level at major regional or national events, e.g. Durham Regatta or Henley, to join and pay in advance for 6 months. 

The club does not wish to exclude people from rowing who are on limited incomes and is always willing to discuss further concessions on subs levels on an individual basis - contact the

*  For calendar year 2019, juniors under 14 on the preceding 1 September (i.e. 2017) pay £14.50 a month and those 14 and over on that date pay £24.00 a month. We use this date in September for the threshold as it ensures all J14 rowers pay the same subs (our rowing year is like the school years and starts on 1 September). But again notre subs in 2019 are under review.

** Off peak generally means before 5.30pm on weekdays and after 1:00 pm at weekends. Access to the club is limited at these times (though generally it is open Monday to Thursday 8.00am to 12 noon and after 1.00pm at weekends), so please ask about the availability of facilities before applying for these categories.

Five year and three year membership is also available for adult members but must be paid in advance by 31 December of the year preceeding commencement. The advantage of this is that any subsequent increases in membership fees are not included for the relevant period.

For the period commencing 1 January 2019:
- the cost of five years is £1680 for full and £1350 for unwaged members.
- the cost of three years is £1008 for full and £810 for unwaged members.
