The club is formally registered with the authorities as a private, non-profit sporting association. Consequently the club is governed by a formally notorised Constitution, and a set of Club Rules. The Constitution is necessarily written in Portuguese, and may be inspected, on request, by any member. A (rough) English translation and the Club Rules, which are formulated in English, may be perused here.

Along with the revised Constitution and Rules, the club has introduced a formal Code of Conduct to which all members are required to adhere. This may be viewed at Code of Conduct. Members should also familiarise themselves with the generally accepted Etiquette of the game, and with the club's dress code.

{The 2012 AGM (October 13th, 2012) agreed to a number of changes to the Club Constitution & Rules. These changes are now in effect. Documents relating to the earlier version of the Constitution and Rules may be reviewed via Minutes of the 2012 AGM}.

In essence, the club is run by three levels of committee, the members of whom are elected by and from the club membership at Annual General Meetings (AGMs), each election being for a 2-year term.:
