Our current membership is truly international, and is made up of both permanent residents and expatriates. With its British origins, the Club retains a majority of English-speaking members. However, there are many other different nationalities, and Commonwealth countries, together with North America, are particularly well represented.


General Information

The Club is run by a Management Committee which is appointed at each Annual General Meeting. The clubhouse is the responsibility of the House Committee and each Sports Section has its own committee. 

It is a tradition of the Standard Athletic Club that it is managed by volunteer members on behalf of all the members. If you feel you can devote some time to the Club, you will be more than welcome. This is also an excellent way to meet other members.


Members pay an annual subscription fee and a one-off joining fee which is refunded pro-rata if you leave the Club within three years. There are reduced rates for students, young adults and children. Please check the subscriptions page or ring the Secretary for details.

Both clubs have a lot in common, and were founded within a year of each other, in 1890 and 1891 respectively.
