IES Membership & Playing Costs

Playing and associated Membership fees. These are payable by Senior Players and Junior players who play in the senior hockey programme on Saturdays.

Fees for 2019-20 are listed below. These are subject to variation by the Club Executive Committee, in the event of factors beyond the control of the Club or factors associated with use of the playing and social facilities at Ipswich School Sports Centre (ISSC) – renamed from Rushmere Sports Centre.

Full annual senior playing membership (2019-20), effective from 1st September 2019, is £120.00 (men) and £120.00 (ladies) with juniors & students (i.e. those in full time education or under-18) at £60.00.

There is also a Saturday match fee of £10.00 (senior men & ladies) and £5.00 (students and U18s). Match fees accumulated over the season are set to also cover the cost of about 25 mid-week training sessions, general club costs e.g., 1st Aid supplies, match balls and teas at home or travelling when away from home (for all league and friendly games). This represents outstanding value for a good day out, including a game of hockey, on Saturdays during the winter months (Sept – Early April) and membership of ISSC.

Non-Saturday playing ‘Associate Membership’, also known as Sunday/Midweek (S/M) membership, [ie, covering non-participation in the main Saturday match programme, (which, we regret, is non-voting and non-inclusive of membership of ISSC*)] is also available at £25.00 (men or ladies).

Payment of either the full Subscription or the S/M Subscription allows the (associate)/member to be considered for selection in the Summer League teams (May – July, mid-week evening games) and the Suffolk HA Indoor Leagues (October – April, mostly Monday evening games at ISSC in the sports hall). Note that there may be restricted opportunities to play as the club fields about half the number of teams in the Summer League and indoor League competitions as it does in the regular winter outdoor league programme.

Other participation fees for 2019/20 include:

  • Midweek evening Mixed Hockey Match Fee; at cost (about £4.00 for seniors, depends on squad sizes and needs to break even, so the Captain has some flexibility in order to meet the target)
  • 1 day Mixed or Men’s / Ladies Tournament Fee £5.00
  • Training Fee (non S/M or non Full member) £2.00
  • Monday evening Ipswich School (Suffolk Indoor Leagues or Summer social sport) fee £6.00 per 2 game or per 3 game evening session (or £2-3 per game)
    Summer evening Match Fee £5.00 (with Captain’s discretion to vary, in order to meet the target)
  • Sunday/National Competition Match Fee £10.00
  • 1-off or ad-hoc midweek games – at shared cost

Full Senior or junior Membership of the Hockey Club includes full membership of Ipswich School Sports Centre (Tel 01473-272525). This Sports Club is owned by Ipswich School (and trades as ‘Ipswich School Enterprises’), and is run by the Manager, Mr Roger Osborne as a progressive concern aiming to provide the infrastructure for a number of ‘Associate Member Clubs’ (which includes Ipswich – East Suffolk H.C. together with football, badminton, dancing, tennis and other clubs). Members may hire club facilities at advantageous rates. There is (usually) free car parking at the Club, as an additional benefit for members.
