You may also complete forms to compete at events, and correspond with us at various times by phone, email, through Facebook or the club website.

The information you give us may include your name, date of birth, address, e-mail address, phone number, gender, and the contact details of a third party for use in the case of emergency.

Any personal data we ask you for will be for no other purpose than to fulfil Club responsibilities.
