Application Form

3-week free trial membership

We offer a trial membership which lets you come along to club training sessions for up to 3 weeks for free. To make use of the free membership, fill in the application form above and choose the trial membership option. After you send in the form we will invite you to our members-only Facebook group where the training sessions are posted. (A Facebook account is recommended to get the most from the club.) If after the 3 weeks you choose not to join then that’s absolutely fine.
