Membership

CTA are pleased to announce that we will be introducing club membership for the 2022-2023 season. Following
multiple consultations, as well as extensive committee meetings, we are now in a position to announce the
specific details of what this entails.

To best serve the variety of players in our club we will be introducing a tiered membership model:

  • Full standard membership: £65 (per person per year)
  • Concessions: £52 (per person per year)
    • Students
    • Juniors (18yo and under)
    • Unemployed

** Referee Only: Please contact CTA to determine your tier.

Yearly Membership Period: October 1st–September 30th
Membership is delayed whilst administration system is being setup during October.
So all training in October is free

Can I play in the Wednesday social league without being a CTA member?
Yes, absolutely! The spring and summer social leagues are separate entities for all
intents and purposes. You do not need to be a member of CTA to play in the
Wednesday social leagues.

I’m new to touch/CTA. Can I try it out before committing to membership?
Yes, of course. For individuals brand new to touch or the club, we will be offering 3
training sessions free of charge. After these sessions, you will either need to become
a CTA member or you can continue to join training sessions at a rate of £7.50 per
session.

Can I still train with CTA if I don’t want to be a member?
Yes, of course you can. However, from October 1st 2022 onward we will be introducing
a £7.50 fee (per person per session) to attend training. And remember, if you are not
a member you will not be able to represent CTA in tournaments, nor will you have
access to subsidised referee or coaching courses.

I’m a referee, what are my membership obligations?
If you only referee at our Wednesday social league you do not need to be a member
of CTA. If you are a tournament referee for CTA or attend training as well as referee
please contact CTA to discuss the various options available. Please note, existing
referee incentives will continue and be included as part of the club membership.
