The annual membership cost is therefore $105. The membership year is from July to June with fees due before the start of the year. There is a sliding scale for people joining part way through a year based on $25 per quarter. Download a Membership Application Form at the bottom of this page.
PFA licence fee
All club members throughout Australia must be licensed as players by Petanque Federation Australia, (PFA). Being licensed means you are automatically covered by Australia wide insurance should you have an accident between the time you leave home to travel to play at an authorised club to the time you return home after playing. There is the usual sliding scale of benefits for various types of accidental injury. For players over 80 the benefits are reduced. If you’d like further details ask the Treasurer, Keven Diggens, 0410 578 568, firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can become a Social Member of Camberwell so long as you are already a member of another club through which your $35 PFA license fee is paid. Social membership gives you access to all the facilities, playing opportunities, social activities and benefits of an Adult Membership. Social membership costs just $50 p.a. or $12 per quarter or part thereof.
Juniors are those under 18 on the day they join and are not charged any fee by Camberwell. They pay $10 p.a. for their PFA licence and insurance cover unless they join in the fourth quarter, April – June, in which case PFA waive their fee for that quarter.
