A constitution sets out the purpose and rules of your club. It is the basic document that helps to ensure proper running of your affairs.

Typically, the constitution will set out:


  • The objectives for your club (e.g. what you want to do or provide for your members)
  • The different forms of membership (e.g. adult, junior, social) and subscription rates
  • The rules by which your club will operate
  • How the affairs of the club are to be managed (e.g. by officers and a committee)
  • How the members control the club, usually through an annual general meeting

All clubs should have a proper constitution.
