You can join WaHo if you are a Student at the Wageningen University as long as you have sports rights*. From September 2016 onward we won’t accept people doing their PhD in Wageningen because, according to the new rules of the WUR, they are officially employees of the WUR and not students anymore.

The costs of becoming a member of WaHo depend on whether you play competition or not. All of the WaHo teams participate in the Dutch competition system of the NeVoBo.

The membership costs at WaHo for competition players are €86,25 this year and for members who only want to train €32,50. These costs were based as followed:

  • The costs for the trainings at WaHo are €3,25 a month. Usually our members stay at least a whole (academic) year which means that the costs are 32,50 euros a year for the trainings (the two months summer vacation excluded).
  • The costs to play competition at WaHo are €53,75 a person. These costs stay the same during the year, even if you don’t play competition during the whole year.
  • Since ladies 1 and ladies 2 play in a higher class the contribution for these teams is higher:
    •  Ladies 1 play third division, the Nevobo costs amounts to €81,35 instead of €53,75, so €113,85 in total.
    •  Ladies 2 play promotion class, the Nevobo costs amounts to €69,70 instead of €53,75, so €102,20 in total.

WaHo works with an automatic money transfer (called: automatische incasso). Each November the membership fee will be withdrawn from your account automatically.

*When you are a member of WaHo you should have sports rights so you are allowed to make use of the sport facilities. You can buy these at the Bongerd and the price is dependent of your study instance. Due to the rules set by SWU Thymos, all students who are a member of a student sports association have to buy sports rights for the whole year, even if you are just attending for half a year. More information about the costs of sports rights for the academic year 2016-2017 can be found here.
