Subscriptions are due from all players by 30th September each year. Payment of these constitutes membership. Members may vote at general meetings and play hockey with the benefits of club insurance. Subs may be paid to either to the Membership Officer or directly to the Club Treasurer. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Newmarket Hockey Club’, while cash should be in a sealed envelope with your name on the front.
(18 & over)
(Over 18 & in full time education)
(13 – 18 years)
(U13, includes club polo shirt & socks):
Goalkeepers: Active Goalkeepers who provide their own complete goalkeeping kit will be exempt from subscriptions for the year, at the Club’s discretion.
New Players: All new players have four weeks to pay the relevant subscriptions, but cannot play league games for the Club until they have done so. New members who wish to play in the Men’s or Ladies’ senior teams will also be subject to a one-time sponsor-subsidised fee of £40 to cover the cost of playing kit. This amount should be added to the total subs fee due.
Players who do not pay their subscriptions on time will be subject to an additional £20 fee. We therefore urge all members to pay on time to avoid this penalty. Seniors who wish to attend training on a regular basis but not play matches are still obliged to pay their full yearly membership subscription fee.
And it’s not just hockey! Although the main objective of Newmarket Hockey Club is to play and promote hockey within the Newmarket area, we believe that taking part in other activities with our teammates greatly increases team spirit and attributes hugely to our success. The Hockey Family is a famous characteristic of our great game and an integral part of any club, so to keep this feelgood factor going we run a variety of club social events for both senior and junior members, as well as their families. Here are just a few of the events we have organised:
- Senior Curry Night
- Newmarket Races – picnics in the family enclosure – everybody welcome
- Chairman’s Day – senior and junior games – present and past members – followed by ploughman’s lunch
- Annual Christmas Dinner & Fancy Dress Party
- ‘Last Saturday of the Month’ themed socials
- Annual Summer Tours – Bognor Regis, Wisbech & Harleston Magpies to name but a few
- Race Night Fundraising
- Trip to Alton Towers
- We have close links to East Grinstead HC, so organise trips to see National League matches
- Hawaiian Night
- Junior parties and BBQs
- End of Season ‘Black Tie’ Dinner and Presentation Evening
