The club is committed to everyone having the right to enjoy their sport in an environment free from threat of intimidation, harassment and abuse all club members have a responsibility to oppose discriminatory behaviour and promote equality of opportunity.
The club will deal with any incidence of discriminatory behaviour seriously, according to club disciplinary procedure.
