Members

As well as offering a casual pay and play model at our club sessions for everyone, we also offer an annual membership for those who want to get more involved in SBC.

Southsea Badminton Club Membership

Membership for the 2019-2020 season will cost £15 for new members, or £10 for renewing members.

Generally as a member you are eligible to:

  • Represent the club in local league teams
  • Get exclusive access to club kit, when available
  • Influence how SBC is run – you can vote at club AGMs and run for committee positions
  • Benefit from ‘early bird’ booking for club socials
  • Join dedicated training and development sessions
  • Have a warm fuzzy feeling from helping contribute to the community’s growth

The benefits for members in the 2018/19 season included these and more.

The funds will go towards supporting the finances of the club throughout the year, including subsidising match costs, socials and club nights.

The small print

Cap on Members

Following feedback at the 2019 AGM, the SBC Committee decided to impose a cap on the number of SBC Members per year, with priority given to renewing members from the previous season.

This is to recognise the historic support from those members, to ensure that Member benefits are viable, and to ensure fairness. The remaining member will be offered on a first come first served basis, and at the committee’s discretion.

Membership paid for the 2018/19 season started on 17 September 2018 and will be valid until 16 September 2019.

Membership paid for the 2019/20 season will start on 1 September 2019 and will be valid until 31 August 2020.
