Thank you for showing interest in the club the following information sets out how the club works and what is required of you as a member.

The club has been running for about eleven years, originally it was run by a small number of competing athletes who represented the force at several PAA events. 

I have now taken over as Chairman and am looking forward to taking the club into the future and representing the force at some great events. 

The club is financed by the force Sports and Social fund. They allocate a set amount of money to us each year depending on the numbers of paying members within the club. We do therefore need you pay into a sports and social fund.

With the constraints of everyone’s duties it has been impossible to get a set training date so the club tends to train as individuals or in groups organised locally with members who live close to each other.

We are setting up a What’s app group chats where people local to each other can arrange to meet up for training sessions. 

There is also the Hantspol Tri Facebook page with members can join to keep up to date with training and races. 

Fortunately our work has given us access to a good internal mail system so the club has no excuse for keeping in touch with each other.

To join the club there are two stipulations:
1) You have to be a paying member into HPLS. 
2) When competing you have to enter under the Hantspol Tri to qualify for the advantages of getting a proportion of your entry fees paid back!
