Membership of VRA starts from the first of January and continues to the 31st of December. This means that your membership can never be proportional to the number of months that you are a member, or to the amount of matches you have played.
In the Netherlands the cricket competition begins in May and ends in September. At VRA however you are welcome from early April till October. Each team has more than eleven players, so while it is possible to play every week it is by no means required. If you would like to join our club, please fill the membership application form.
We are looking forward to your application. We will get in touch with you as soon as possible to confirm your membership.

To be allowed to play and train it is necessary that you pay your membership fees on time. In case your membership fees are not paid on time, the Financial Committee will have to decide to a suspension of your right to play and train, until payment is received. The Financial Committee will monitor this closely.
Collection of membership dues
VRA has outsourced the collection of membership fees to ClubCollect. This is not a collection agency, but an administration service company that offers many advantages for both members and club. How does this work?
Prior to the season ClubCollect sends an email, SMS or letter to every club member requesting payment of the membership dues. These messages contain a link that you can use to make your payment.
Also you can state whether you want (a) to make a full payment or (b) pay in instalments. Also you can choose for (c) automatic debit collection.
Your membership fees should be paid before the expiration date of your invoice. If you have chosen for four instalments (involving an administration fee) you will receive a reminder by email, SMS or letter before every expiration date. If payment is not received by the expiration date the invoice will be increased with 10 euro.
The membership list is only visible for VRA members and donators on this website after logging on. Please check if your personal data is still up-to-date. If not, please notify any changes to the member administration. Without your correct personal data we may run into communication mistakes and problems.
If you have any questions about these procedures please contact the treasurer. More information about ClubCollect can be found on their website.
Every year we are receiving requests for restitution of contribution fees due to not being able to play a part of or the whole the season. The reasons that are put forward are divers, but usually they are concerning injuries. We as club are not bearing any responsibility for this situation. Only if you let us know in writing to email@example.com before April 1st that you will not be able to play, membership can be terminated or transformed into a non-playing membership.
In some special cases the treasurer may decide to grant dispensation for payment of dues. Members who think they may qualify please contact the treasurer.
Timely requesting the termination of membership is the full responsibility of the member. This has to be done by completing the membership termination form completely: request termination. The cancellation must be received before 31 December of the year preceding the season for which membership is being cancelled. In case of cancellation after 31 December the Club is legally entitled to fully charge the membership fees for the new season.
