MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION


Please read this important message from Membership Secretary Nick Hume:
"It is more important than ever that Club Membership fees are paid sooner rather than later, as England Athletics (EA) and Competition Providers are checking whether athletes are affiliated and the Club does not pay EA until the relevant Membership fee is received.

It is vital that we avoid the situation that arose last year when some athletes were disqualified in T&F competition because of unpaid fees. Details of BWFAC's membership fees can be viewed here.

Regards.

Nick."
