Membership information is available here.

As in 2021-22 the WCU fees for the period 1st September 2022 to 31st August 2023
are unchanged as shown below:

Adults – £15

Juniors – £7

New members or those rejoining after a minimum period of 5 years –
Free membership in their first season.

As in 2021-22 I am content with members being registered with me through regional
zones and I will be emailing zonal officers regarding this.  I am also happy for clubs to
register their players directly with me as some North Wales and Gwent clubs did in
2021-22 and individuals can also become registered by completing the attached
direct membership applications form.  

If anyone has any questions on anything re registrations please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
