Half Membership 2016/17 FAQs
Q: This will be my first season as a Member, what do I need to know?
A: Firstly, welcome to Quins! Your half season membership will officially begin on Sunday 1st January 2017, which is when you will be able to access your exclusive benefits. If you purchase before 16th December, you will receive your welcome pack before Christmas. If you purchase after that date, you will receive it after Christmas but in time for the first match. Your pack will contain everything you need to know about your membership.
Q: When does the half season start?
A: 2016/17 half season membership begins on Sunday 1st January 2017 and the first match of the membership is Harlequins v Sale Sharks on Saturday 7th 2017 (kick-off15:00).
Q: What can I do if I cannot make it to a match?
A: You can use Ticket Forwarding to email a friend or family member a ticket for your seat for the match in four easy online steps. Just as easily you can sell a ticket for your seat to another Quins supporter through Ticket Resale, meaning you receive 50% of the sale price with the other 50% donated to the Harlequins Foundation. Either way, you can make sure that there is someone to cheer the team on, even if you can’t make it to the match.
Junior Members unable to attend evening matches (with a kick-off of 19:00 or later) can upgrade their seat at no extra cost so that it can be used by an adult.
Q: Why does the Club play matches on a Friday night?
A: Our preferred kick-off time is always 15:00 on a Saturday. However, television scheduling means that some of our home matches are played on a Friday evening and all Aviva Premiership clubs are affected by rescheduled fixtures. If you are unable to make a match on a Friday evening, you can use Ticket Forwarding or Ticket Resale to ensure that your seat does not go to waste.
Q: I qualify for a concession priced membership and I want to buy online, how should I send my proof of qualification?
A: Please send a copy of your proof of eligibility by post to Harlequins Membership 2016/17, Ticket Office, The Twickenham Stoop, Langhorn Drive, Twickenham, Middlesex, TW2 7SX or by email here. Please include your name, Supporter Number and address with your proof of eligibility so that we can identify your submission. If we do not receive your proof of eligibility within ten working days of your purchase, your membership card will not be activated for the new season.
Q: How will I know if my purchase has been successful?
A: You will receive an email confirming your membership details for the new season, including any optional benefits you may have purchased, such as seasonal parking.
Q. When will membership packs and cards be sent out?
A: If you purchase before 16th December, you will receive your welcome pack before Christmas. If you purchase after that date, you will receive it after Christmas but in time for the first match.

Q. What is your guest policy for the Members’ bar?
A: The Members’ Bar admits the Member only. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept Members' guests in the bar on matchdays. The bar is very popular but has a fixed capacity, which we cannot breach. To ensure the maximum number of Members can enjoy the bar in comfort, regretfully we cannot accommodate non-Members. Supporters using a ticket issued via Ticket Forwarding will not be able to access the bar.
Q: Who can access the international ballot?
A: All Members will have access to the ballot. However, priority is given to Members in the 1st XV Club.
Pricing and Payment
Q: Can I buy membership as a gift?
A: Yes, Harlequins membership is the perfect gift. If you would like the membership pack issued to you rather than the person you are gifting it to, please call us on 020 8410 6000 and confirm that you would like the pack sent to you.
Q: Can I buy online?
A: Yes, in almost all cases, you can easily purchase online. The only memberships that cannot be bought online are Family memberships, which can be processed over the telephone by calling 020 8410 6010. These memberships will incur the online administration fee of £1.50 per transaction.
Q: What is the easiest way for me to become a Member?
A: Buying online is the easiest way, unless you are buying Family memberships, in which case you need to call us on 020 8410 6000.
Q: Why do we have administration charges?
A: The £3 and £1.50 administration fees – per transaction, rather than per membership – are charges incurred from the associated costs of processing the membership. These include card charges, software costs and administration costs. These costs have been reduced this season and we are working hard to improve our systems to further reduce these costs in the future.
Q: Where does the money I spend on membership go?
A: Every penny from your membership is reinvested in to the Club. This includes the playing squad and their support costs, as well as maintenance of The Stoop.
