Joining the club

The only requirement of our constitution is that you are over 18 and competent to climb. This means any adult is welcome to join the club, and share in the fun provided that you have enough experience to put on a harness, tie in to a rope and belay reliably and safely.

Every Wednesday evening there’s a group of us who climb indoors at the White Spider climbing wall at Tolworth from 7 till 10. Club members receive a concessionary entry rate on Wednesday. On the first Wednesday of the month at 7pm we host a social night at White Spider where both new and prospective members can meet, hang out and eat cake with existing and more experienced members.

Once a month on a Friday there's a pub night at the Royal Oak in Surbiton from about 9pm. Come along to the wall or the pub and say hello. Alternatively, simply drop a message to our membership secretary via
