Club Management

The club is managed by a committee of between 8 and 11 members under its constitution. The committee is responsible for running the club, maintaining its facilities, promoting the sport, and upholding the club’s bye-laws. The committee meets 6–12 times per year, and the decisions and actions from these meetings are available to members:

An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held once per year in late October; the minutes of the last AGM are also available:

If you have a suggestion for improvements at the club, either to the facilities or the way that the club, competitions or teams are run, please submit it via the online suggestion box. Also if you notice a problem with any of the facilities at the club, please take a moment to enter an issue into the maintenance log. You will immediately receive an email acknowledgement, and in the case of maintenance faults, the maintenance officer will review the issue and respond within a few days. The committee also reviews all new suggestions and open maintenance issues at every meeting.
