Become a member!
We are always happy to welcome a new member in our club. Whether an experienced fencer, or a novice fencer who has just complerted the trial lessons or theory course. You can register as a new member by phone, mail or (preferably) by email to the secretary.
After your registration you will be asked to complete and sign the application form. In it you sign that you understand our safety regulations. Once you join, you will receive the secretary of our ‘statuten’ and ‘club rules’.
Termination of membership is only from 1 January or 1 July of each calendar year and only in writing or by e-mail to the secretary. This should be done no later than one month in advance (IE before December 1 and June 1). Say you are late, then you will remain at least six months longer a member and then also make your contribution payable over six years. This rule we use because otherwise we run too great a risk that we can not pay the room rent.
Membership can be terminated from 1 January or 1 July of each calendar year and only in writing or by e-mail to the secretary. This should be done no later than one month prior the membership termination (e.g. before December 1 and June 1). If you are late notifying, then your membership will continue until the next termination date. This rule is in place to mitigate the risk that the Club would not be able to fulfil its financial obligations (e.g. sport hall rent, equipment purchase / maintenance, etc.).
