Club Rules

Changes to the Club Rules 2023

The Club Rules were initially written in 1904 and were first reviewed in 1971. When the club was incorporated in 1991, they were modified again.

The June 2023 meeting of the TFNC Committee considered necessary changes to the Club Rules and decided to take them for endorsement to the TFNC General Meeting of 6th July 2023. The new rules were endorsed at the July 6 meeting and they will come into effect from the next AGM in March 2024.
