Club subs are now due and we ask all our Senior members to start making their payments now. It costs a huge amount to keep our small club running and we cannot do that without payments coming in. Click here to register and pay now.
As per the Club Constitution, 50% of your subs are due by November 1st and final payment to be received no later than February 15th. Please also note that players who have not paid their subs from the 2016/17 season will NOT be eligible for selection to ANY squad. Please email email@example.com to settle up any outstanding payments.
Impact Gumshields will be coming to Bray HC on Sunday 10th September from 1pm to 3pm with their fully qualified dental team to take impressions for anyone who wants a custom fit gumshield. 7 days later they will return your custom fit gumshield to the club.
The costs of an Impact Gumshield starts from €50 for one colour and you must book an appointment to get a fitting.
Please note gumshield fitting appointments are open to both Senior & Junior club members and the service will be cancelled if there is not enough of an uptake on the day.
