In order to extend your membership after completing the minimum number of Direct Debit payments, we will automatically continue collecting the Direct Debit payment amount every month. Your membership will be extended by one month each payment. Each payment made is not refundable under any circumstances.

This renewal Direct Debit payment amount may only be amended if you have not taken out a Fixed Price “Life” membership. We will advise you in writing giving 10 days’ notice.

General terms

  1. You agree to comply with the rules of membership which are displayed prominently in the club and relate to opening hours, use of facilities and your conduct. We may make reasonable changes to these rules at any time provided we give you advance notice of the change.

  7. We may terminate this agreement with immediate effect on notice to you if you are in breach of the club's rules. In this event, you will not be liable to pay any further Direct Debit payments, provided that we do not deem such breach as to have occurred primarily in order to qualify you for a refund.

Please ensure you have your membership card to gain entry - entry may be refused without it.
