To offer an efficient, trouble-free membership system we aim to collect all fees electronically.

We have choosen GoCardless to allow us to create Direct Debits from the website. We will process all membership fees and match fees through this system so there's no longer any need for captains to collect cash. The appropriate amount will be deducted from your bank account each month.

Of course, you are fully protected by the Direct Debit guarentee when paying through GoCardless.

Alternatively we can collect fees via PayPal.

Our fees are described below and a form at the bottom can be used for new membership applications.

Playing Membership

Playing membership for the 2016 season is just £55 for both seniors and juniors. The committee is determined that the club is inclusive and that membership fees should not be too large a barrier to playing cricket at our fantastic venue.

We have attempted to simplify our match fees for the 2014 season.

Season Ticket

To reward those who show regular commitment to respresenting the club we are offering a match fee season ticket at an attractive price.

Unlimited matches in any form of cricket; Senior players £130, students / concessions £100. This is paid over the five months of the season at £26 and £20 a month respectively.

Reductions

We will refund the match fee for drivers that take 2 other players or officials with them to an away game in the SNEL. Players will need to claim their travel costs in writing from the Treasurer (treasurer@colchestercricket.org) stating the match and the players taken.

As we are now offering the season ticket we will not be offering a discount for those playing in two matches over a weekend.

T20 Cricket

Since it is often a challenge to get to evening T20 games we do not collect a match fee for these matches.
