Adult Rugby Players
The rugby section operates a scheme which enables you to pay your membership fees and
contributions online, by signing up to a monthly direct debit of £24.20 This totals £290.40
per annum, to include:-
- Your £40 Datchworth Sports Club subscription
- The rugby section supplement of £80
- Our suggested donation (on which we claim Gift Aid) of £170
We encourage all players to sign up to the direct debit scheme, which is a 12 monthly
subscription. (Please note that paying by DD is based on 12 monthly payments, and includes
the close season and also periods of short term unavailability) To sign up to the scheme, please
visit www.datchworthrfc.com and login (or register for an account) before entering the
‘’Payments’’ section under the ‘’Shop’’ menu. Please do not forget to tick the Gift Aid
option on your profile to enable us to claim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate.
If you do not wish to pay by direct debit, you will need to pay £120 (£40 DSC+£80 rugby) at
the start of the season.
Your captain will then ask you for a £10 Gift Aided contribution each time you play. Students
and Under 21’s will be asked to contribute £5 each game.
