Attending the club:

Interested individuals are welcome to any regular session on a no obligation basis. Participants pay a £2 training fee as a contribution to running costs. If an individual wants to compete s/he must join Worthing Harriers and pay the annual subscription.

When we meet:

We meet on Monday evenings from 19.00 to 20.00 and on Saturday mornings from 09.30 to 10.30.

Equipment:

Initially a new participant only needs to wear close fitting clothing and provide their own gloves although these can be ordinary gloves such as those used for gardening or DIY. The club has a pool of entry level racing chairs for newcomers to use. If a participant wants to take up the sport, s/he may want to purchase his/her own racing gloves and chair.
