No you do not. Beginners are always welcome, and there are always people available to guide you on your first visit. It is preferable to attend firstly at a Taster evening, or if you are being introduced by a member as their guest, they will guide you and possibly take you out. It is necessary to identify yourself and sign in as a visitor.
Details of the club’s active dates are on this website: Club Calendar of Events. If you enjoy your first couple of outings you are encouraged to join the club in order to avail of the facilities.
