The Society welcomes and indeed encourages players of all ages and seeks to promote the benefits of the hobby (which are considerable) for all.
Membership of the club has many advantages. There are excellent facilities available to club members at Elles Hall with over 30 tables available, excellent scenery for all periods and of course (and most importantly) the chance to meet other wargamers and arrange games, exchange views and join in with a wider group with similar interests. Members may also bring their guests to participate in games at the club of course.
Members are sent a news letter called "Dispatches" every month. This features articles of news and club games as well as articles from members and reviews of rules and figures etc. Apart from reporting news, Dispatches offers a means for people new to the hobby to advertise for opponents or others with similar wargaming interests so that games can be arranged in advance.
Membership currently costs £5 per annum (renewable in January) with additional table fees of £1 per night on Friday Nights and £2 on Sundays.
Non-members are charged £2 per night after their first visit on Fridays and £3 on Sundays after their first visit. These fees are the same for all ages.
Note: There are a few members under the age of 18. The Society is not classed as a "Child Care Organisation" under the Protection of Children Act and so players and visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied at all times (for more information click here
