MEMBERSHIP TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Welcome to your local Leisure Centre. We aim to provide facilities and services, which meet and  exceed your expectations. If at any time you feel we have failed to meet these standards, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team. Alternatively please complete a customer comment feedback form in the centre or by visiting the feedback section on our website at LeisureCentre.com. We will work hard to ensure your visit to the centre is a positive one and to help you achieve your health and fitness goals. The agreement commences once you have indicated your acceptance in the Declaration section of the sign-up process. These Terms are a legal agreement between us, so please make sure you read them carefully.

These Terms replace any previous versions and apply at all times and take priority over any verbal communication by us. We may need to update these Terms from time to time and as such, updated terms and conditions can always be found on our website leisurecentre.com.

 

1. Cancellation and Financial Terms

a. An annual or fixed membership package is offered for a minimum of 12 months whereby you are committing to a 12 month term and are not able to cancel within this period. You can freeze an annual membership for a maximum of 6 months per year at a charge of £5 per month but the freeze period will not form a part of your 12 month contract. A freeze charge will not apply if medical supporting evidence is supplied.

All other membership agreements are offered on a flexible  direct debit membership option with a full calendar month cancellation period.

b. Members can pay either by annual subscription in advance, or monthly by Direct Debit. For granting this credit, members pay an additional 10% charge which is incorporated in the Direct Debit payments. For further details, please see the Direct Debit Mandate Terms and Conditions. For the avoidance of doubt this agreement is not a Consumer Credit Agreement.

c. Members joining in person at the centre are not entitled to a 14 day cooling-off period. Online joiners are entitled to a 14 day cooling off period if the facilities have not been used and an induction was not booked..

d. Your membership will commence on the Start Date [as defined at point of joining], after which time you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions stated in this contract along with the Core Terms and Conditions and any other applicable terms and conditions.

e. The membership term, if fixed 12 months, is a minimum of 12 months and your Direct Debit payments will continue beyond 12 months until such time you advise us in writing of your intention to cancel. 

f. The Member can, at any time beyond the 12 month initial membership term, cancel their membership by providing us with a full calendar month notice. All membership fees will be payable up to the date of cancellation.

g. You are able to cancel your membership via the leisurecentre.com website “contact us” form or by phoning one of the team on 01905 969 619. Members  at Attleborough, Caludon, Crosby, Hengrove, Mulberry Sports, Penzance and Swaffham Leisure Centres should contact 01905 969 689. Once processed you will receive confirmation of the cancellation, you can then cancel your direct debit instruction at your bank. If the cancellation terms are not followed, legal proceedings may be taken and a £20 default  fee will automatically be added to your account when a direct debit fails to collect. A maximum of 2 x £20 default fees will apply in a month if a mid month representation fails.

Notice. We calculate your membership in whole calendar months. This means that the following applies:-  Anywhere in these terms and conditions where we ask you to give notice of one calendar month or more, if you give notice during a month, we will treat it as if we received it on the first day of the following month and the notice period will run from that day. For example, if you need to give us one month’s notice to end your membership and we receive your notice mid month, your notice will start from 1st of the following month and will lapse at the end of that following month. The only exception to this is if we receive notice from you up to and including the fourth day of a month, we will treat it as if we received it on the first day of that month and the notice period will run from that day.

We will confirm we have received your notice within 10 days of receiving it. If you do not receive this confirmation within 10 days, you must immediately let us know so we can check whether we have received it.

Our contact details are on the website. Cancelling your direct debit does not mean you have given us notice to end your membership. You must give us written notice in line with ‘Notice’.

h. Where a Direct Debit has failed or a member has purported to have cancelled their Direct Debit without prior agreement, the membership shall be suspended until payment is received. Any member who falls behind in payments for more than 1 calendar month will forfeit his/her membership. Upon failure to make payment, subsequent reinstatement of the membership or any future membership will be subject to the outstanding membership fees being paid in full. If the contract terms are not followed legal proceedings may be taken and a £20 default fee will apply. 

i. In exceptional circumstances, e.g. injury or pregnancy, you may be allowed to freeze your membership for an agreed period [up to a maximum of 6 months] for a fee of £5 per month. This request must be made via our website Freeze form  https://www.leisurecentre.com/contactus or by phoning 01905969619 stating the reason for the freeze and including supporting medical evidence.  Five working days notice is required to process a freeze in time for the following month direct debit payment. Please could members at Attleborough,

Caluden, Crosby, Hengrove, Mulberry Sports, Penzance and Swaffham Leisure Centres contact 01905969689. Once processed you will receive a confirmation email of whether the freeze period has been accepted or not - this must be retained as proof. The frozen period does not count towards your minimum membership term and we are not able to freeze swimming lesson memberships. If medical supporting evidence is provided the freeze fee will be waived.

j.  If you fall behind with your monthly payments and we are unable to collect your membership fees on the 1st working day of a month as agreed upon joining then a £20 default fee will apply on top of your monthly payment for each missed payment. If you cancel your direct debit without the required full calendar month notice a £20 default fee will apply on top of the final month's payment.

k. We will inform you a minimum of 2 weeks in advance of any increase in the price of your membership, by email in the first instance. It is the members responsibility to inform us of any changes to your personal and contact details including address, telephone number and email address so that such communications may be made. You can also make these changes directly in the membership area of your online booking account or by using the contact us section on our website under “my membership”. https://www.leisurecentre.com/contactus

l. We, our subsidiary companies and partners reserve the right to update and/or amend the terms and conditions as necessary without prior notice. Members are requested to adhere to the Membership Terms and Conditions at all times. These may vary from time to time within the centre of choice.

n. All gym users must complete a gym induction prior to gym use. You must be at least 16 years of age to be a member, unless you are a Junior member.

o.  Members can contact us with a site specific membership query or to give feedback by visiting our website, https://www.leisurecentre.com/contactus whereby we will respond. From time to time we will need to contact you about your membership, so it is important you let us know if your address, contact phone number or email address changes. We will notify you by email in the first instance, therefore it is the members responsibility to ensure the email address is correct.

p.During the first 12 months, you can transfer your Direct Debit membership to a friend or relative who can then take over the remainder of your existing membership term. A nominal administrative charge of £25 for the transfer will be made to the new member. Please contact us via our website https://www.leisurecentre.com/contactus and select “my membership” to request a transfer..

1.1 Promotions and Offers

Members are permitted to book up to 7 days in advance; registered non-members are permitted to book 5 days in advance. For the first 12 weeks S2H members are restricted to S2H classes only. After 12 weeks S2H members can participate in all classes apart from high impact i.e Bodypump, Bodycombat, Powerwave & Circuits.

 

Where court bookings under a membership are available, the number of people must not exceed the number of players that can play at any one time per court e.g.4 for badminton. We reserve the right to charge additional players a non members fee.

 

Please make every effort to cancel your booking via the app or on-line if you are unable to attend a booked session. This allows other customers to utilise the space. Cancellation of reserved sessions is permitted, provided that such cancellation is made at least 2 hours in advance of the activity start time.  Failure to attend a booked activity without giving the requisite notice 3 times within any 30 day period will result in the loss of advanced booking rights for 1 week [7 days].

 

For safety reasons, customers will not be permitted to access a group fitness class 5 minutes after the class has commenced.

 

Facilities

We reserve the right to withdraw all or any part of our facilities for short periods of time to carry out routine maintenance and for exhibitions/events. We will always strive to give Members advance warning of these times [where possible] and no refunds will apply in these circumstances provided they occur no more than 10 times in any 12 month period.  If your  Leisure Centre is closed for more than 7 days in a row and we do not provide another facility [this may be a facility with fewer services or a temporary facility] at your Leisure Centre or somewhere up to 10 miles from your Leisure Centre, we will refund a percentage of your membership fees which relate to the period that your Leisure Centre is closed, but not including the first 7 days. This does not apply if we permanently close a whole facility [for example, the pool, gym, studio or tennis facilities], or if we have to close the facility due to reasons outside our control. 

 

Respect for Others

The centre will not accept any abusive, threatening and violent behaviour towards our staff. We will pursue prosecution of anyone who assaults or intimidates a member of our team.
