The CA is run almost entirely by volunteers who give up their time to promote the game and help in the administration. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to promote awareness of the game in the national press and elsewhere, to organise a tournament circuit our members benefit from, to maintain the laws of the game, to provide coaching and generally to help both new and existing clubs to develop and flourish.

The first year of Club Membership costs £60. In subsequent years, the fee is based on the number of playing members in your club (excluding those who have told you that another club is their primary one): the 2020 rates for adult members are £9.00 per head for small clubs, that have either a playing area significantly less than 2 full sized lawns or significant external restrictions on lawn availability from May to September, and £14.00 for larger clubs that exceed that threshold; and £5 a head for students or young people. The fee is capped at £90 in the second membership year, and £120 in the third; and is a minimum of £60 in all years.
Schools and universities can enjoy a reduced rate of £30, which entitles them to the same benefits as Full members clubs, except that they do not get insurance (as they will be covered by their institutions) and can only register 30 of their members as Standard members.
