New Members


New memberships normally become available in April each year following our membership renewal process. New memberships are limited and as a result applicants are now required to add their details to a waiting list by following the requirements supplied when clicking the Senior Membership Waiting  List button. Memberships when available will be offered to those on the waiting list first on a first come first served basis. Any remaining memberships will then be made available to general online applicants. When membership is offered or available online, applicants are required to open a Clubmate account ensuring that all the required fields in the personal profile form are completed in full and a clear head and shoulders photo uploaded before saving and continuing. Once an account is opened applicants will be able to choose the appropriate New Membership Plan by clicking on Start New Membership with those offered membership from the waiting list being supplied with a promo code to access their new membership plan. Once a Clubmate account has been opened and verified active members will be able to log into their account at any time from the My Account tab on our website Home Page or the mobile Clubmate App and maintain personal details, view documents only available to members, book on to activities and complete membership renewals online.

New Senior Members are subject to a one off joining fee when they join the club

Payment can be made by either Debit or Credit Card.

Junior membership between the ages of 6 and 13 years old is free of charge. However, our junior membership is not available online and juniors must always be accompanied by an adult member when fishing club and affiliated waters. An online account for a junior can be opened and linked to an adult member’s account and a photo uploaded to that account. However, an application form will still have to be downloaded from HERE and completed by a parent or guardian and include the name and membership number of the Senior or Non-Fishing member of the club who will accompany and be responsible for the junior when fishing on Club waters. Once completed the form is sent to the Membership Secretary (with a passport style photo if not already uploaded). If a junior membership card has been requested, a stamped self addressed envelope must be included. Once the process is completed the Membership Secretary will add the Junior Member.
