Club Membership & Benefits

Membership Renewals

Membership renewals take place in January every year

Renewals are now closed. You will be asked for your card upon entering the club or at the bar to show that you have renewed for 2023.

Members missing the January 31st deadline can expect a £5 late renewal fee on top of the usual fee, removal of all club privileges, and the de-activation of the car park and entry fobs. You maymisscretary during office hours if the secretarymissed the deadline. Neither Committee Members nor Bar staff can help with this!

Becoming a New Member

New memberships are taken from 1st February 2024

In accordance with the rules of the Club, both men and women over the age of 18 can become full members of the Club subject to approval.

The easiest way to join is by calling into the Club and asking the bar staff for an application form, or you can download a couple in pdf file format if you click on the link below and print it from your computer.

You will need two existing members signatures, one to propose you and the other to second you, and some form of photo identification.

Then simply return your form along with £15 for your annual subscription and £15 joining fee (£30.00 returnable if application is unsuccessful) to the Club Secretary, or hand it in at the bar.

Your name will then be posted on the notice board in the foyer for a period of 2 weeks. Provided there have been no objections to you becoming a member, you may then collect your club cards from the Secretary, or they can be left behind the bar to be collected. You will have 2 months from the date of your application to collect your club cards. Failure to do so will result in you having to re-apply and forfeit your advancement of subscriptions.

You may then also become an affiliate member of the C.I.U if you wish (additional subscriptions apply).

Processing typically takes 2 or 3 weeks.

Membership Responsibilities

New Members should obtain a copy of the Rule Book to see what is expected and rules pertaining to disciplinary proceedings and the like.

Benefits of Membership

Membership has many benefits.

Together as a group, we are more robust, and we have a say in the running of our club – what we sell, when we open, and who can come in. The club can be a lifesaver on weekends when Earlsdon is like being in a busy city centre. Our bar staff are very efficient under the steady hand of the Steward and the Management Committee. We get served quickly, and at most times, we can find a seat and watch the match or see some of the best entertainment in the city.
