The Club does not own the car park but has allotted spaces on the left as you enter. These are only available for Members and their guests during visits to the Club. As parking space is often at a premium, Members may not use the car park at other times.
Members may not park between 7am to 7pm the Monday prior to Regatta and throughout the Regatta period from the Tuesday until midnight on the Sunday (Finals Day)
Membership cards operate the parking barrier and the front door of the Club out of hours. Replacement cards are available from the office at a charge of £10.

Members are reminded that the Club Pink livery and Club buttons are the strict preserve of Full Members and may not be worn by others. Leander Evening Dress is for Full Members only and comprises Dinner dress trousers and shirt, pink bow tie and cummerbund, traditional Club double breasted navy blazer with Club buttons.
Members are encouraged to bring their guests to the Club, where they will be most welcome (other than for specific Members-only events). Members are responsible for ensuring their guests comply with Club rules
Members are also encouraged to propose new Members to join the Club and advice in this respect can be obtained from a Committee Member, the General Manager or the Membership Secretary
RECIPROCAL CLUBS AND OTHER MEMBER CONCESSIONS
There are an extensive number of clubs where we have reciprocal arrangements and Members may stay there as guests. The list of participating clubs and the code of conduct for such visits are on the website and copies are also available in the office
There are also a number of concessionary arrangements for goods and services that are available to Leander Members and these are listed in the Member’s section

Staff gratuities are entirely at the Member’s discretion; they are always well received but are not expected. Many Members choose to contribute to the staff fund which is distributed at Christmas
The office staff are pleased to accept such donations during working hours
PINK HIPPO SHOP
A member of staff will be pleased to open the Pink Hippo Shop for you during normal office hours and at other times when commitments permit. Shop items may also be purchased on-line
