Junior Memberships Instalments Payments

There are a variety of membership levels which reflect different age groups and some include match fees.

Membership of EGHC entitles the member to affiliate membership of East Grinstead Sports Club (EGSC), which enables the overall site to operate via the Charity that owns the site, land and infrastructure (including pitch, floodlights and dugouts).

£26 from each membership subscription is paid to the East Grinstead Sports Club charity, to maintain the site and build a fund of money to eventually replace the hockey pitch they rent back to us for our programs.

We are able to offer your membership spread over 6 equal monthly instalments, unfortunately you have to complete a membership per person currently
