WATSONIAN SWIMMING CLUB – Membership Renewals for 2022-23
The existing excellent arrangements for swimming at the Galleon Club will continue for 2022-23. The WSC Swimming Membership fee for the Galleon Club will increase by £3 to £80, which is still a very good deal. All WSC members pay the Social Membership fee of £10 to cover WSC administrative costs, including the website, secretary’s expenses etc.
