Tender Shoots is perfect for individuals and smaller clubs to enjoy zoom talks from the comfort of your own home, and it allows clubs to work together for mutual benefit. There are two options for becoming a full member.

1) Become an Individual Member. Although our zoom talks are open to anyone to attend anytime, we simply ask people to consider making a donation only afterwards if they enjoyed it. There is no obligation and no set amount. Sometimes the talks are recorded, but recordings are restricted to only members and affiliated clubs. By making a donation you will become an individual member and receive all the same benefits as the affiliated clubs. Please send us an email ( and we’ll send you our bank details to make your donation.

2) Your club could become Affiliated with Tender Shoots. To become affiliated there is a small membership fee and we ask you to contribute a talk towards our programme of zoom events.
