Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all clubs and players who have affiliated so far for 2016/2017. In addition to this we also wish to show our appreciation by extending our gratitude to all club administrators who have offered their time to complete their clubs affiliations this season.
The online affiliation competition has now come to a conclusion with the final draw being made for the month of November. Carrigtwohill BC (Cork) were fortunate enough to be first out of the hat, meaning that 15 tubes of shuttles are heading to the south of the country. Completing the affiliation process online has a number of benefits; memberships are activated immediately in comparison with the manual affiliation lists which take time to input on the system, while it also ensures consistency from year to year.
One essential membership update for all players wishing to compete in All-Ireland team events is that the deadline for affiliating is January 15th 2017. Anyone affiliated after this date will be unable to compete as that ruling will be strictly adhered to. Moreover, please note that the club registration fee will rise to €75 from January 01st 2017.
Should you have any membership related queries please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com or alternatively by calling (01) 839 3028.
Finally, we hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas and wish you all a Happy New Year.
