The ESA has taken the decision to no longer be solely a FISTF affiliated association. We are going to try and bring all elements of the game in England together. With that in mind changes have been made to membership and the whole process. In the past membership has run from 1st September to 31st August in conjunction with the FISTF season. That has now changed to 1st January to 31st December.
There will currently be 3 tiers of membership; Collectors, Domestic and International.
This will be free to both under 18’s and Over 18’s. The plan is to create a database of collector’s and events so that people can connect with likeminded people in their local area. The ESA will advertise any collector’s events on its website if it has been notified of them.
This is aimed at players who want to play on the English circuit but not play in any FISTF events. Membership for this will be free to Under 18’s and £10 to over 18’s.
Players at this level will play in FISTF events and be able to qualify for World Cup’s and European Championship’s. The costs at this level are £5 to Under 18’s and £20 to over 18’s.
All players/collector’s now have the choice of what level of involvement they want to have with the game and ESA. Membership’s should be paid by the 31st of January every year.
