There are two basic types of membership within the Club – Annual Membership and Full Life Membership. Applicants under the age of 30 years special reduced rates:
This membership is open to a single person or a family for a one year fixed fee with monthly subs. This will immediately appeal to those on fixed term contracts. Annual Membership can be renewed at the end of each term and upon the fifth renewal is automatically upgraded to full life membership. Annual Members may upgrade to Full Membership at any time.
Annual Membership is open to all nationalities but has a restriction on numbers so there may be a waiting list. Annual Membership is a restricted Membership with no rights to vote, propose new members, attend General Meetings, stand for General Committee or go absent as enjoyed by Full Members.
Full Life Membership
There are several types of Full Membership:
- Ordinary Membership - Membership with full voting rights for citizens of the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, residing in Bangkok.
- Country Membership - Membership with full voting rights for citizens of the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, living over 80 km from the Club.
- Associate Membership - Membership for citizens of other countries residing in Thailand who are proposed by an Ordinary or Country member. Associate members do not have voting rights, cannot hold office on the General Committee nor can they propose or second a new member, but they enjoy the same use of the facilities as other members. Please note that there is a limit on the number of Associate members and on the proportion of these, which can be of any one nationality, therefore it may be necessary to go on a Waiting List.
- Installment Membership - Non-Voting Membership - Suitable for those members who qualify for Ordinary or Associate Membership but who wish to spread entrance fee payments over 12 months rather than full payment at one time.

Within Ordinary, Associate and Installment Membership there are two categories
