A Constitution should be a very simple document which aims to ensure the smooth working of a Club.
Difficulty may arise when one tries to put what amounts to common sense into clear words. The Sample Constitution in this booklet is one way of achieving this.
This is a very basic version of a Constitution and as the Club grows new issues will arise which need to be formalised, but beware – some organisations spend more time changing the Constitution than participating in their sport. Leave any problems for the Club’s Executive Committee to solve.
It should be emphasised that this Sample Constitution is not intended for a Club which owns significant assets or operates a professional sport.
