The best way to keep up to date with Wapping Hockey Club


Subs for the 2016/17 season - deadline 30 Sept!

1 year ago By Joel Marsden

Over £100 cheaper than equivalent clubs! £15/20 increase for full members. Other rates frozen. Early bird benefits. No pay no play.

Dear all,

Now that pre-season training is underway, and the season is soon to start - it's time to talk £££.

As announced at the AGM earlier in the year, the amounts for subs will be going up by ~10% for those on the full rates, while remaining fixed for students, the unemployed, and social members. The first subs rise in over 5 years! This decision was taken to help us meet the increasing costs of running the club, and continue to offer high quality hockey at the best facilities, in a fantastic social environment.

With playing shirts also provided by the club free of charge, and all of our teams getting to play at least some of their home matches on water base (with the rest on newly laid hybrid), we believe we offer the best value for money around - drop us an email at if you disagree!

In another change from last year, all committee members (including captains) will now pay the concession rate - as opposed to half rates. The exception to this is our 2 fixtures secretaries and the umpire liaison officer (ULO) who will continue to benefit from free subs in recognition of the important (and often unrecognised) work that they do for the club.

As such, the following amounts are due:

- Full member: £240 (£215 for early payment)
- Concession (FT student / unemployed / committee): £154 (£134 for early payment)
- Social (allowing participation in mixed hockey, club socials, and up to 4 Saturday games, however no training / squad selection): £50
- Goalkeepers, head coaches, fixtures secretaries (x2) and the ULO: £0

In order to get the early payment discount, the whole amount must be paid by 30th September. If not taking up the early payment offer, then the first half of your subs is due by 30th September, with the remainder due by 31st December. As in previous years, the club operates a no pay, no play policy. As such, please ensure timely payment to ensure that you are not stopped from playing/training.

As ever, if you would like to set up a payment plan, this is absolutely fine to do. Please just get in touch with me to discuss. If you're facing financial difficulties, or not sure which amount applies to you, then also don't hesitate to get in touch.

Subs are to be paid to the following account:

Payee (if required): WHC Social Club (Subs)
Account: 63382974
Sort code: 20-26-46

Please (please!) use your name as the reference - given it's a dedicated subs bank account, there's no need to worry about any reference to 'subs' or 'membership'.

New to the club? Welcome, you've made a fine choice!!

Find out more about us and how to join here, get yourselves along to pre-season training, and contact our membership secretary at:
New members are welcome throughout the season, with subs paid pro rata.

Do get in touch also if you're an umpire, coach or keen to volunteer and help with the running of the club.

As always, if you have any questions, please let me know.
