The membership fee is based on their age, and if relevant, will increase corresponding the membership as of the month following each birthday. When a child reaches the age of 18, they will become an independent adult responsible for their own actions and hence the signing of their contract. In case the previous lead member wishes to proceed paying the younger person’s membership, this lead member must also sign the new contract. Besides this we will also need permission or a signature from the parental carer of the child or grandchild. This is essential otherwise the child or grandchild is unable to use the club’s facilities. We have the right to limit the number of children linked to adult memberships.

e. You as the person who signed the membership agreement are responsible for the membership fee for both yourself and all other members linked to the membership. (both child and adults).
