Roma Turf Club Members are very important to the club and we want to ensure you are kept informed about the latest Club initiatives, major events and race meetings. 

Please bookmark our website/facebook page to help keep you up to date.  Members will also be placed on our email list.

Given our focus on animals and the clean and fresh environment of country racing, we hope to achieve carbon neutrality and emailing instead of mailing in envelopes will help us (and the planet) get there. 

Please include your email address and we will notify you of any information. That way, you can also delete us if we become too annoying.
