Membership Terms and Conditions
Your membership will start from the date specified on your membership agreement form in joining at our venue.
You will be a member for at least three full calendar months which is your minimum term. Your membership will continue automatically after your minimum term unless you terminate your membership in line with section 5 below.
We may on occasion need to make additional temporary changes to our class timetable. If possible we will notify you of our intention to do this
Monthly membership fees
Monthly membership fees are paid in advance bystanding order. This will be payed from your bank account on the first day of every month.
Missing membership fee payments
If you don’t pay your membership fee on time, we will e-mail to tell you. We will continue to attempt to collect your subscription unless you contact us and arrange alternative payment. You may be charged a one-off non-payment fee of £15 for this.
In addition we may charge you up to £30 if we refer your arrears to a debt collection agency.
Until your fees are successfully collected and your account brought back up to date your membership will be suspended and you will be unable to attend classes.
Suspending or cancelling your membership
- Suspending your membership
After the end of your minimum term you can suspend your membership at any time. You can only suspend your membership for full calendar months for a period of up to three months.
Suspension may be activated from the start of any calendar month by giving us at least five working days written notice before the end of the previous month. Your membership will then be suspended from the first day of the following month. For notices received less than five working days before month end, membership will be suspended on the last day of the following month.
When suspending your membership you will need to supply a re-start date; your membership fee payments will automatically re-commence on that date. You are responsible for ensuring that we have received written confirmation of your suspension request and re-start date.
Medical conditions: If you have a medical condition which prevents you from training temporarily, you may suspend your membership within your minimum term. Outside your minimum term we permit extended suspension periods for medical conditions. Medical suspension periods can be a maximum of twelve months. We will require proof of your medical condition (such as a doctor’s certificate). We will suspend your membership upon receipt of doctor’s certificate or other proof. Any membership time paid but not used after this point will be credited back to you in training time upon your return.
- How to cancel your membership
Should you wish to cancel your membership you must give us at least five working days written notice before month end. Your membership will end on the last day of that month. For notices received less than five working days before month end, membership will end on the last day of the following month.
Notices received after 17.30 will be deemed to have been received on the next working day.
You are responsible for ensuring that we have received your written notice.
(i) Cancellation for medical reasons, relocation or redundancy
