The club is staffed by a dedicated team of voluneers, and committee members are on hand at every training night to ensure the smooth running of the club.

The committee is made up of three elected officials: Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, who are supported in co-opted positions by the Welfare officer, Social secretary, Team captain, Members liason officer, and Armourer.

Committee meetings are held monthly to discuss the running of the club and organise events. Regular club members are welcome to attend these meetings and are encouraged to attend the AGM, at which club officers stand for election and the more significant club decisions are voted on.
