Welcome to the home page for Clubs!

This is where you will find all news which is relevant to EBU affiliated clubs.

Since April 2010, the EBU has been funded through Universal Membership which means that anyone playing in an EBU-affiliated club automatically becomes a member of the EBU and pays a small subscription amount each time they play.

If your club is not yet affiliated read about the Benefits of Affiliation. To affiliate complete the Application Form.

For a full directory of EBU affiliated clubs please visit the Club Directory.

Our Club Liaison Officer, Andrew Urbanski, is always available to give advice and assistance to clubs. You can contact him by emailing andrew@ebu.co.uk.

Andrew’s role is to support all the EBU affiliated clubs in England (over 600 of them!) and he has visited over 50 clubs since his appointment in May 2012. If you would like to arrange a visit from Andrew to discuss the services which the EBU provides for clubs then please let him know.
