Q4. How do I pay?
Answer. Teesdale Athletic Club has a new system in place, powered by UK England Athletics and PayZip, that allows you to pay your Club Membership fees online. By paying online you help reduce the time spent administrating the membership so your co-operation and support is warmly welcome. This service is available to members 18 years and over. A useful guide explaining how to pay using the online scheme is available here.

Q5. Do I have to pay online?
Answer. We anticipate for the majority, using the online payment scheme will not be a problem. Nevertheless, there may be circumstances that prevent some members paying their Club Membership fees online. If this is the case please contact the club Membership Secretary as soon as you receive notification when payment is due so that we can discuss alternative payment methods.

Q6. I think I deleted the email requesting payment, what should I do?
Answer. An email will be sent to you when payment is due. If payment hasn't been received within 2-weeks a second email will be sent to you requesting payment. If payment still hasn't been received the club Membership Secretary will try and contact you using email and telephone to discuss payment of Club Membership fees.

If you feel circumstances prevent you from paying your Club Membership fee please get in contact with the club Membership Secretary as soon as possible so we can discuss and agree together a new payment plan.

Q7. I'm not over 18 years old, how do I pay for my fees?
Answer. Payment of fees will be made using traditional offline method, that is paying the Group Leader directly. If however you are representing Teesdale Athletic Club in a competitive event under UK England Athletic rules then the club will pay your UK England Athletics registration fee for you.
