New Player Registration

Posted on Wednesday 3rd June 2015 by Neil Dowers

If you are a new player and would like to play this weekend, you will have to be registered with the WDCU. Please therefore fill out this registration form (external link) and return a signed, scanned copy to along with a clear photograph of your face in JPEG format (one taken with a smartphone standing against a neutral background is fine).

Please note that if you are under 18 (that is, you were 17 or younger on 1 September 2014), you will not have to provide a photograph.

If you are transferring from another club outside the WDCU or ESCA, you will have someone from your former club fill out part of the form. This is probably best done by scans and emails, given your former club is likely quite far away.

Please also pass the completed form to a club captain or committee member as soon as possible.
