Membership For 2021/22

This page shows Membership Category Information, our Honorary Members and our Membership Benefits.
. . . Keep Scrolling!

Harrogate Pythons RUFC offer many ways for everyone to enjoy the benefits and fellowship of our community rugby club and it’s our pleasure to offer the following membership categories and benefits to our sporting and social community.

Apart from the running costs of our club, we also need Membership subs and match fees to pay for:

  • Playing kit and training equipment
  • Coaches expenses and referee fees
  • Pitch Hire (dark nights)
  • Post Match food and beers for the away teams
  • Laundry
  • Pitch Maintenance, mowing, marking and sanding
  • Gym and Sports Therapy Sessions
  • Matchday Pitchside Sports Therapists

So, your Club implores you to keep up with membership subs as unpaid membership deprives the club of vital funds

Please remember that if your membership remains unpaid then someone else is subsidising your rugby – just ask yourself the question, “Is my mate at the bar paying for more than just my pint”?

Pythons Cannot Afford To Support Unpaid Memberships – Please Respect This!
