Welcome to the website for Action Sports Club. Members can log in to access their club discounts and other benefits.
Current memberships will remain valid up to the expiry date on the card plus a few extra weeks. We will no longer be offering renewals and have cancelled all recurring payments via PayPal. We will no longer be offering new memberships.
Action Sports Club, in its current guise, will close down some time after April 2022.
Facebook killed the forum years ago. The amount of time and effort it took to keep the site's content fresh and in organising our own events was significant so we stopped doing that a while ago. At the same time, UK snowboarding lost of lot of its identity and brands stopped investing in local events.
We still have plenty of members but as UK shops and slopes closed and holidays abroad ceased due to COVID, renewals and new memberships naturally declined.
The cost of maintaining the old website has fast overtaken the income the club generates and the cost of creating a new website is prohibitive.
When that happens it's time to call it a day. The current website provides access to the discounts for existing members but not much else.
Thanks to all the members, visitors and partners who have supported Stu, Spencer and myself since we launched Snowboard Club UK in 2004 and Action Sports Club in 2015.
I created TheBoarder back in April 1997 to learn how to write websites and that's now my full time career. The websites have been a big part of my life and it's fitting we will close our doors 25 years to the month of the launch of that first website. I've had some great adventures in front of the keyboard and on the slopes and I have some amazing friends because of the club. I know I'm not the only one with a good handful of ASC/SCUK babies out there to prove it! I'm very proud of what we did.
