3. Class timetables

We review our timetable twice a year in line with the seasonal clock changes at the end of March and the end of October. We will give you at least 30 days’ notice of any timetable changes affecting your membership. We may on occasion need to make additional temporary changes over and above seasonal changes to our class timetable. If possible we will notify you of our intention to do this.

The joining fee applies to all memberships. If you cancel and want to re-join, a further joining fee may apply.

Any joining fee payments will be taken in advance by credit or debit card. 

b. Pro-rata membership fees

You will pay your first month’s pro-rated membership fee in your first Direct Debit payment. The first payment will normally be taken within 15 working days of your membership start date. 

c. Monthly membership fees

Monthly membership fees are paid in advance by Direct Debit. This will be taken from your bank account on the first working day of every month.

If your membership fee is not paid on time, we or our processing agent will e-mail to tell you. We will continue to attempt to collect your subscription by Direct Debit unless you contact our membership team and arrange alternative payment. A one-off non-payment fee of £15 will be charged for this.

In addition, we may charge 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.

e. Fee changes

We review our membership fees from time to time. We will give you at least one calendar month’s written notice of any such changes. If we increase your membership fees (excluding VAT) by more than the rate of inflation plus 5% in any six month period then you can cancel your membership by giving us seven days written notice.

You can suspend your membership at any time. You can only suspend your membership for full calendar months for a period of up to six 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.

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 receive written notice of your intention to suspend your membership and a re-start date.
