Promoting the Study of the History of Sport

Joining BSSH

Joining BSSH costs you an annual membership fee of £40 UK for waged members and £20 pounds for students, retired or unwaged members.

As a member of BSSH, for this small fee you have the benefits of free access to our quarterly journal Sport In History, and reduced registration costs for our annual conference and other BSSH events (which more than covers the annual membership fee!).

Regardless of when you join, annual membership expires on the 31st of December.

If you would like to become a member BSSH then simply complete the registration and payment form below. You will be able to pay by credit/debit card.
