Membership Number:

Your Membership Number is the four digit number to the right of your name on your Membership Certificate. To avoid confusion, we ask you to include this number on the form. However, for new members, and existing members who have lost their certificate, the Online Membership Form provides tick boxes which generate a temporary identification number to link the form with the payment.

New Members - Date of Birth:

New members under 21 years of age are asked to send a scan or photocopy of either their Birth Certificate or Passport. (Do not send original documents.)
These may be sent as an email attachment to:

Membership Certificate:

Your Membership Certificate will be emailed to the address you have given within 14 days of the Association receiving both membership form and payment. If no email address is provided in your submission form, a certificate will be posted to the address you provide in your submission form. Please keep it safely for the whole year, and produce it at any competition you enter.
