COVID-19 Impact on Club Activities

Please be aware that under the current national state of disaster declared in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, and in observance of the lockdown regulations, Cape Town Section activities including meets and socials are limited or downscaled.

This has an impact on our membership application procedure.

As at February 2021, we have a backlog of membership applications to clear, and unfortunately we are not able to accept any new applications until this notice has been removed.

We regret any inconvenience, and look forward to welcoming you as a new member when circumstances permit.

Please do not complete the application form until the notice above has been removed.
