What's your view on clubs? Survey 2014

Posted by Will Harris on 29/04/2014
Want to find a friendly group to head into the hills with? Join a club!

Whether you are a member or not, we want to know what you think about climbing, walking and mountaineering clubs. Complete our survey and enter our draw to win a £50 Cotswold Outdoor voucher, a British Mountain Map and a BMC guidebook of your choice.

Clubs have been around since the first Victorians began to enjoy their scrambles amongst the Alps. Since then they have evolved to play a central role in British outdoor society, with over 250 clubs sharing a combined membership in excess of 25,000 individuals.

Part of our work at the BMC is to support affiliated clubs and to help us to do this we want to know what you think about their role in the twenty-first century. We want to know what you want from a club, how it should communicate with its members and how we at the BMC should be supporting it.

We are interested to hear the views of people from across the outdoor community, so whether you are an active club member or not we want your opinion.  

By completing our survey you will be entered into our prize draw to win a £50 Cotswold Outdoor voucher, a British Mountain Map and a  BMC guidebook of your choice. 

Complete our club survey.
