After my right to cancel period noted below, I may cancel my membership by giving notice by filling out a cancellation form at my local or designated Club. The notice will be effective on the last day of the month which is at least 30 days from the date of my notice, and I will be required to pay all fees up until that date and any outstanding fees for other services already supplied to me, regardless of whether or not I use the club after the date of my notice. If collection or legal services are needed to collect any unpaid amount, I am responsible for all costs of collection, including solicitor’s fees of Club Owner and/or Licensor. A member must cancel a class booking at least eight hours in advance of the class to avoid the class being deducted from your purchased packages.
While the Club will endeavour to provide advance notice the class timetable, instructors and classes are subject to change at any time.

Bookings can be made online from 01.09.2019, however please be advised that you may not book onto classes that overlap each other. A member must cancel a class booking at least eight hours in advance of the class to avoid the class being deducted from your purchased packages. If a class is full please be advised that a member can book onto the waiting list. A confirmation email will be sent to advise the Member’s place on the waiting list. If a space should become available then members will be automatically enrolled into the class and notified via a confirmation email. Please be advised that once you are on the waiting list Members are committing to attend and could be auto booked into the class up to 1 hour before the class start time. Therefore please ensure that you remove yourself from the waiting list if you find yourself unable to attend, to avoid loss of a Class from your purchased package as part of the Cancellation policy.
Members are advised to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of their scheduled class. Late arrival may result in entry to the class being denied at the discretion of the Class Instructor. Please note that you may not participate in the Class if you have not completed the obligatory initial warm up. Upon arrival please check in at Reception.
