Membership Info

TWHC welcomes new members at any time during the year. We have a healthy summer league and friendly match programmes, as well as the more 'formal' winter league programme. If you're a prospective new member then please phone or email the relevant contacts below and complete a senior or junior membership form as appropriate. You are welcome to come along to a couple of ‘taster’ training sessions before committing to membership.

To find out more, come along to a training session to have a go or, if the information below doesn't answer your questions, please contact:

Please note we treat 16 and 17 year old members (as at 1st Sept 2017) as seniors and they should contact the appropriate Club Captain. However, for child protection purposes, they are still counted as juniors and will be required to complete a junior membership form (which includes parental consent).

The playing fees cover most weekend hockey, coaching and training during the normal season, September to April.  Other hockey may attract a league, festival or tournament fee and/or a match fee.  Such hockey includes summer hockey, midweek leagues and tournaments or festivals.

Below is information on the various membership categories for the 2017/18 season, both for new and renewing members. If you have any questions about membership categories or payments then please contact our Senior Membership Secretary, Alec Pelmore (01732 850 739).
