Becoming a member

Fees:

Bristol & West Membership

The club runs at cost. In order to make subs more affordable, membership fees are paid over a 12-month period, despite the season only running from September to April.

Membership fees are currently £23 per month for members over 18, and £18 for members under 18, or those in full-time education. As a new starter, you are entitled to three ‘taster’ sessions free of charge.  After this time you need to set up a Standing Order for club membership. This is paid directly to the club bank account each month (see below for bank details). The club fees cover the cost of weekly training sessions, court fees, league entry, umpires, balls, bibs, first aid kits etc. and the general running of the club. Additional costs would only be incurred when buying your own kit for matches. Occasionally the club may invite specialist coaches or fitness trainers to take a session, which may require an extra contribution towards costs.

England Netball (EN) Affiliation Costs

The affiliation fee for this season is £46.50 for members over 18, and £25.55 for members under 18. This includes the England Netball fee, County fee, Regional fee and a Bristol & West fee. AENA rules state that players must be affiliated to England Netball to ensure that they are insured during training sessions and while playing matches.

Communication:

The club will communicate with all members through email and Facebook. The club maintains an email distribution list which you can ask to be removed from at any time. All messages and on-going conversations regarding matches, training and socials will be on the club’s Facebook Group.

We ask that all members share their mobile number with their team captains. This allows the captains to communicate directly about match arrangements, and keep everyone updated if there are any changes. Captains will also use your email to discuss your availability for matches.

Under 18?

We want to ensure that all our members who are under 18 understand the commitment involved in being a member of a club. We want to encourage independent behaviour, and so would prefer to communicate directly through email or text. This will only be done with the permission of a parent or guardian, who will be copied in to all main communications.
