New Membership Applications
Membership Application Process
The application process requires you to register on the Paddle Australia membership system. Select Western Australia and Bayswater Paddlesports Club and complete the registration form. Select the appropriate Club Category (Membership Type) based on your age and whether you are a current member of a club affiliated with Paddle WA.
The membership year runs from 1st October to 30th September. Applications made from 1st April to the end of the membership year receive a 50% discount on the Membership Fee.

If you are already a current member of a Paddle WA affiliated club then you can join Bayswater Paddlesports Club as a Second Club Member. The relevant PWA affiliation fee is only collected by your primary club and so your membership fee will be reduced by $60 for Adults and $50 for Juniors ($30 & $25 if joining after 1st April).
NOTE: There is a once-off Nomination Fee of $50 (not discounted) which covers an entire family. This must be selected once by checking the Nomination Fee in the list of Club Extras on the registration form.
The club has a limited number of boat racks available on a ‘first come first served’ basis. Full year boat rack fees are $131, half year $70.
Volunteering at club events
Your club is run by volunteers. To ensure that the workload does not fall to just a few members, it is a condition of membership for adult members to volunteer at either a club function or to be a member of the club’s Management Committee. Please select your preferred volunteer activity from the list on the registration form.
You can pay the Membership and Nomination fees online by credit/debit card or by EFT to the club’s account. Select your preferred payment method on the Payment Summary page.
Your application will be reviewed by the Committee. You will be notified once it has been completed. There will be an induction at the club to ensure you are familiar with the facilities and the craft you can use, the basic paddle strokes, that you are safe on the water etc.
