  2. Monthly or Part Payments 

Should you wish, you are able to pay for some Memberships in the form of monthly or part payments. This option is eligible for Full Season Ticketed Memberships only. 
Any Member who purchases prior to 27 June will be required to pay your first month upfront during your sign up. You will then be debited one twelfth of the total yearly Membership fee on the 28th day of each following calendar month from 28 June until 28 April the following year, when the Membership is then paid in full.

In the case that you become a Member after 28 June, the Club will immediately debit any monthly payments in arrears from the Commencement Date to the date that you became a Member, and this component will be charged upfront. You will then be debited one twelfth of the total yearly Membership fee on the 28th day of each following calendar month until 28 April the next year, when the Membership is then paid in full.

To qualify for this program, you need to ensure:

  1. you provide details of your Nominated Card;
  2. there is enough money on your Nominated Card ahead of each payment date and the following 5 days; and
  3. you tell us about any changes to your Nominated Card, such as its expiry date or number, before the next debit date.

If there are insufficient funds to charge your Nominated Card, you will be contacted by email and you will need to rectify the payment before the 28th day of the following calendar month. 

If you fail to meet the requirements for two consecutive calendar months, you will be notified by email that your Membership and access to games is suspended without any payment or reimbursement to you. 

If your account is not rectified within 60 days of the first missed payment, your Membership will be cancelled. The Club may take recovery action and apply recovery charges to those outstanding payments. The Club may also refuse to renew any Membership for any season until all outstanding amounts are paid to the Club.
