Is it possible to hide the date of birth field in the contacts page? Age is irrelevant to our club and might put off older people who want to join. Thanks

Currently this is set to help ascertain membership types for club members, the system automatically recognises the category for both membership and team selection.

We will look at whether we can introduce a form that doesn't require dob for clubs not on the gold system, it does depend upon a number of dependencies which we need to consider.

Totally understand your point though, I know one club in a similar position have put a note above the contact form saying the following

The date of birth and gender are a mandatory fields built into the website. If you do not wish to disclose your date of birth, please use today's date.

Hi Sarah,

I see I am not the only one who would like this to be optional.....
