Managing your Membership

How do I freeze my membership?2022-12-14T11:26:06+00:00

You can freeze your membership by reason of illness or injury, suspend his/her membership for one continuous period of at least 1 month and a maximum of 9 months. For non-medical you may freeze the membership for a maximum of 3 months at the clubs discretion. 30 days written notice must be given to the Club and the Club shall have the right to request a doctor’s certificate. A reduced monthly fee will be charged by the Club during the suspension of membership. Any suspension during the Commitment Period will extend the length of the Commitment Period by the length of the period your membership is put on hold. Notice to terminate membership cannot run concurrently with a suspension period.

Still got a question about freezing your membership? Contact us and a member of our team will be in touch.

I’ve been emailing reception to freeze and had no reply!2022-12-14T11:25:52+00:00

If you’ve already emailed us to freeze your membership, please rest assured that we have your request and will process it. Freezes must be requested before the 20th of the month to be processed in time for the month ahead. You’ll receive a confirmation once it’s complete, so no need to send further emails.

Cancelling your Membership

Can I cancel my membership2022-12-14T11:11:17+00:00

You may terminate your membership in the following circumstances:

(a) You can give notice to terminate at any point during the Commitment Period but this cannot end your membership before the end of the Commitment Period.
(b) You may terminate your membership by giving the Club at least 1 full calendar month’s notice, so that your membership will terminate at the end of the following calendar month after notice was given.
(c) Cancelling your direct debit instruction for the payment of fees is not sufficient.
(d) You may terminate this agreement on 1 calendar month’s notice if you are unable to use the Club through serious illness or injury likely to preclude you from using the Club for a period of least 6 calendar months. (We will request reasonable evidence of your illness or injury – e.g. a doctor’s certificate). Members may also cancel with proof of change of address (at clubs discretion for distance) and proof of redundancy.

If you’ve paid in advance, you can cancel your membership in line with the terms and conditions of your membership. Once you have fulfilled your initial commitment period, 30 days paid notice must be given.
As you have paid in advance for your membership term, it will end automatically on the end date. We will contact you in the month before your end date to discuss your renewal options.

Can someone else cancel for me?2022-12-14T11:11:51+00:00

Unfortunately not. We can only accept a cancellation request from the named membership holder. We cannot accept a cancellation request on behalf of another member.

I’ve tried to cancel my membership but could not get through to the Club, what do I do now?2022-12-14T11:12:11+00:00

Don’t worry, we’ve received your request and your subscription will be stopped in line with the terms and conditions of your agreement.

I’ve lost my job or had to close my own business and cannot afford to carry on with my membership, can I cancel with no further payment?2022-12-14T11:12:48+00:00

We understand that circumstances change quickly. So please contact us to discuss your membership payments. If you need an extension whilst you get back on your feet, we’ll do our best to help.

If you’ve already emailed us to cancel your membership, please rest assured that we have your request and will process it. You’ll receive a confirmation once it’s complete. No need to send further emails – it just slows us down.
