Hong Kong offers an array of social and sporting clubs and societies, which are extremely popular with expats. Many of these clubs are centuries-old institutions dating back to colonial times. For expats, these clubs and societies often become a home away from home, and boast bars, restaurants and social events, along with gyms, swimming pools and other sporting facilities.

Club membership in Hong Kong

Requirements for club membership vary from club to club. The most exclusive clubs operate on waiting lists with membership dependent on being nominated and seconded by existing members. The monthly or annual membership fee of these types of clubs can be pricey, and some operate a debenture system that can run into very high numbers. Membership can sometimes be passed on to friends or family. Some companies negotiate fast-track membership for their relocating staff as an added employment perk.

On the other hand, there are also a few less-exclusive sporting- and social clubs that offer far more affordable packages, along with more relaxed membership policies.
