I am writing to invite you to renew your membership for the coming season and, if you are not already an Annual Patron or Life Patron, to consider becoming one.

You may already know that we now have a new enthusiastic Player/ Coach- Jason Luff and we are looking forward to another challenging and entertaining season in Tribute South West 1 West league. A competitive 2nd team and regular 3rds fixtures plus our strong Colts and Junior teams bodes well for the coming season and the future.

We now have improved facilities with an excellent new Pavilion at Sidford, which will be formally opened in the autumn, and work is well underway to complete a brand new pitch at Sidford.

The cost of running the club and contribution from subscriptions

Rugby clubs are now expected to be run much like any other business, with associated regulation and governance, which in turn has increased the operating costs.  Last year it cost some £100,000 to run the club with Membership subscriptions from both seniors and juniors contributing only £10,000 towards that total.

Why become a member?

Some advantages

Cheaper ground entry than for non members

Ability to purchase a season ticket – see page 3

Discounted bar prices

Ability to apply for International tickets

Everys Solicitors are proud to sponsor  Sidmouth RFC and are pleased to offer members

          10% discount upon their legal services (subject to terms & conditions)

Discounted hire of club facilities

Discounts at other club sponsors – currently being established

as well as the above ;

      Annual Patrons have access to 3 lunches at key league games a year.

      Life Patrons have free entry to all games and access to 3 Patrons lunches a year.

Types of membership and rates

Recently your Board reviewed the types of membership that were available and the rates applicable. It was agreed to simplify the options available and the collecting and recording process.

Your Board firmly believes that the options and rates shown on page 3 are competitive with other Devon Rugby Clubs and local sports clubs.

For the forthcoming season the following will apply:

Ground entry – for adults will be £3 for members and £5 for non members.

                      - for juniors will be £1 for members and £1.50 for non members.

Season ticket - New this year - this is an optional purchase providing a discount on ground entry,

perfect for regular supporters. It can be purchased at the same time as renewing your subscription.  

To be fair to all of our members and gate volunteers and bar staff the discounts and subsidised entry can only be gained by producing your membership card.

The more members the club has the stronger it becomes. Please encourage any regular supporters that you know to join up. Application forms will be available at the gate on match days or from the web site.

We are an amateur club run by and for its members and players. We always welcome offers of help and support and if you have a skill or some time (or both) that you think will benefit the club please do let us know.

I look forward to enjoying your company in the coming season.
