What is the cost of annual membership?
Our annual subscription fee for the 2017-18 season is £340 when paying in five instalments by direct debit, or £360 for a direct bank transfer. Students and unemployed members pay a reduced fee of £170.
Where do we play?
We play at Paddington Recreation Ground, London, W9 1PD. The closest underground station is Maida Vale or Kilburn Park. Buses 98, 16, 6 and 332.
The club has the use of two artificial pitches at Paddington Rec which are side-by-side. The water-based pitch was laid in 2009 in collaboration with Westminster Council following a huge fundraising effort on the part of the club. Our other pitch is known affectionately as the ‘Tiger turf’ a 3G rubber-crumb pitch. Due to the large number of home games to be accommodated each Saturday, teams play the occasional game on an overflow pitch within London.
Where is the clubhouse?
For our senior members, the clubhouse is The Warrington, 93 Warrington Crescent, Maida Vale, London W9 1EH

How does selection for teams work?
New joiners will be invited to play for a team that our team captains feel is the appropriate level. This will then be continually monitored along with existing members of the club. Selection meetings are held regularly to discuss the movement of players across the teams depending on commitment, performance and contribution towards the club.
