What we're about
Who are we?
We are friendly, laid back group in the West Midlands that connects people with a love for outdoor sports including: Surfing, Mountain Biking, Climbing, Kayaking, Hiking… generally anything where you get to throw yourself about a bit, get dirty, get wet, and generally have fun. This Meetup group is a spin off of our very popular Birmingham based club - as a result many of the activities are shared between the two. So make sure you join the Birmingham Meetup group and our Facebook pages.
Please note that due to restrictions at climbing walls, we are not allowed to be responsible for under 18's and therefore we are unable to have under 18's join us unless they are accompanied by a parent or guardian who is able to belay competently at each session.
What do we do?
We have regular club nights at the Worcester Redpoint climbing wall - we meet around 7 and normally pop for a quick drink after too.
We go on regular trips away for climbing, surfing and mountain biking amongst others, plus regular socials and other events. All ability levels are welcome! Member organised events are encouraged and are generally organised on our Facebook group - If you want to do something post on their to find people to do it with.
How ESC works -
ESC is a non-profit, BMC affiliated club. We aim to break even over the year and for most events we don't charge at all. Many members organise their own events via our Facebook page, and if you want to do something your welcome to post on their to find like minded people to join you.
Costs (such as Meetup) are mostly covered by club membership fees of £20 a year. Membership is optional for you, but essential for the club to keep running. Membership also covers your BMC membership and insurance and provides discounts at a wide range of outdoor stores. BMC insurance is essential if you climb outside with us, although your first two trips are covered under the BMC "prospective member" rules.

The club is run by a committee elected every January, and membership runs from 1st of January every year.
