By joining the Club you agree to abide by the following:

Please consult the Fees page for Membership types and Fees.

Please remember that each year every existing Member (including Additional Family Members) needs to renew their membership for the new season on the Paddlers’ Zone.

Important for Family Membership: Each and every family Member does also need to be registered separately following the steps here: How to add Additional Family Members

Please note that we have reviewed the fees for members who are not renting a boat rack because:

  1. They may be availing themselves of the Club boats when not part of an agreed programme. This costs the club in terms of maintenance and replacement. These costs are then borne by members with boats who rent racks.
  2. PCC subsidises the membership levies which are paid to the Zandvlei Sports Club umbrella body for upkeep of the premises, and this subsidy is raised from the income from racks.

As we wish to continue to subsidise the fees in this way and to have boats available for our various programmes, it has been agreed that it is only fair on all if adult members who do not rent a rack do not qualify for this subsidy and are liable for an additional fee.

New Members:

If you are a new member, please follow all the steps from 3 to 20 in the list lower down on this page.

Steps 3 to 5 generate a password for you to log in to the membership app, and then steps 6 to 20 are where you complete your application for membership.

Please be aware of the different fee structure for members not renting a rack.

Earlybird Discount:

PCC subsidises your membership levies which are paid to the Zandvlei Sports Club umbrella body for upkeep of the premises. As recognition for loyalty and early renewal, PCC  pays a significantly increased subsidy to  your levy if you opt for the Earlybird renewal option, saving you even more money on your membership subscription. The discounted Earlybird renewal incentive is only available if you renew and pay in full before 31st Jan.

If you have not renewed for the new year, we will endeavour to email you renewal reminders at the beginning of the year prompting you to “Quick Register me now!” through a link in the email. The “Quick Register me now!” links are only active until 31 January.  If you need to change anything at all e.g. number of racks, type of membership etc. you will need to log on to the PCC Paddlers’ Zone and make the changes yourself there while renewing. Earlybird discount will still apply if full payment is received by 31 January for a renewal submitted on the Paddlers’ Zone also before 31 January.

Lapsed/Late Renewing/Former Members:

If you are an existing member and have been a member of the club at any time since 2013, your details will be on the PCC Paddlers’ Zone. Follow the instructions below from step 6.

Please be aware of the different fee structure for members not renting a rack.

 How to open the gates at the Club:

Access Control is administered by the Club Manageress, Tracy Pomeroy-Ward, who helps part-time at the Club and can be reached by phoning 071 174 3099 or by emailing:

When you are fully paid up and have received an email advising that you are successfully registered for the current year, please allow a couple of days for your access to be activated, then if you have any problems with access to the Club, please contact Tracy.

First of all, your membership needs to be activated. When this is done you receive an email advising that you are successfully registered. Only then can the Clubhouse Manageress load your cell number onto the access control system when she is next on site. (She is only there part-time.)

Go onto the Google Play Store and download and install an app called G-REMOTE on to your phone.

When your number has been entered on the system, “Zandvlei Sports Club” will show up in the device list.

When you tap on this one, an “Entry” and “Exit” button will show on the screen.

Tapping on a button sends a signal to open the gate. Sometimes it doesn’t work first time because the system is updating but after a few more attempts the signal usually goes through.

G-REMOTE works erratically when there is load- shedding, and also the cellphone signals are not recognised if the cell-phone network is overloaded. So we also use a Bluetooth system which is more predictably reliable to open the gates:

Download the app Bluelock Web either from the App Store or Google Play Store

Ensure Bluetooth on your smartphone is turned on.

Contact Tracy, the Club Manageress, by phoning 071 174 3099 and she will then send your phone two messages with token codes, one for the entry gate and one for the exit gate. Enter these codes into the app, and a tab will appear on the app for each gate. Then anytime you need to open a gate, open the Bluelock Web app and touch the tab for the gate you wish to open when you are within 25m it.

These token codes are specific for each member’s phone number and for each gate.

You must allow the gate to close normally behind the car entering or exiting ahead of you (no tailgating).

Should you tailgate and crash into the closing gate, you will be fully liable for all damages.
