We are sorry for the delay in sending out these joining instructions there was an issue with the arena data migration onto the new platform which took the developers longer than anticipated to fix.
As many of you will already be aware the HPA membership is now purchased directly from the HPA, not paid as part of your club subscription fee.
In order to play chukkas, matches or tournaments you must have the appropriate HPA membership and membership of an HPA Affiliated or provisionally affiliated club.
How to join
