Season 2020/21 Membership Update

Membership Update

Season 1st October 2020 to 30th September 2021

With lockdown starting to ease and most members now able to use the facility to various extents across all sections we thought it would be a good time to give you all an update on our thoughts for memberships in relation to season 2020/21 as it was always our intention not to implement any membership renewals until we knew when all sections would be able to come back fully.

With Scottish Government current guidelines confirming competitive sport will be able to return from 24th of August and assuming leagues and competitions starting not long thereafter we feel it is right to run the new season as normal from 1st October 2020 to 30th September 2021 for all sections and members.

Note: We would however note that guidance can change at short notice and there may still be some restrictions in place, but our aim is to plan for a full season and usage of facilities and then deal with any implications as they arise.

In terms of membership fees these will remain as existing as below:

Annotation 2020-08-10 151438

Note: New member is classed as someone who has not been a playing member of club or any section for last three years.

 

Payment options will also remain as existing with Senior, Intermediate, Full time students and Over 55s having the option to pay in full by 1st October or pay up over 5 instalments on 1st Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec and Jan with all other members required to pay in full by 1st October 2020.

Note: Any member who does not pay in full by 1st October or sign up to instalments will not be able to use facility after 1ST October until membership paid in full and membership card will be cancelled

Cricket membership will also remain as existing to be paid by 1st June 2021 with option to pay over 5 instalments also on 1st Feb, Mar, Apr, May and Jun 21.
