    2.2 For the purpose of these terms, anything expressed as being “writing” includes email.
    2.3 If we need to contact you to discuss your membership then we will call or email you on the details you provide to us on your membership application form.

    3. Starting your membership
    3.1 If you wish to start a membership with us you must submit a membership application form to the club manager together with the relevant joining fee.
    3.2 Your agreement commences on the start date set out on your membership application form.
    3.3 When your membership starts, you will need to make the payments set out on the membership application form. You cannot use any club facilities until you have signed your membership application form, made the payments set out in the application, and set up your direct debit (if you are paying by direct debit).
    3.4 We will contact you in writing to confirm we've accepted your membership application form. Sometimes we reject applications, for example, because a credit reference we have obtained is unsatisfactory, because of a lack of capacity at the club, because we can't verify your age (where the service is age-restricted), because in our reasonable opinion you would not be a suitable member of the club, because you have previously had your membership revoked or because the membership service was mispriced by us. When this happens, we will let you know as soon as possible and refund the joining fee and any further sums you have paid in relation your membership.
    3.5 When your membership starts, you will be provided with a membership card. This will be used as a form of identification and you will be expected to bring this with you each time you visit. If you forget your membership card, we may ask to see a second form of identification before allowing you access to the club.
    3.6 If you have lost your membership card, then this loss should be reported to a member of staff immediately. You will need to obtain a replacement membership card and an administrative fee of £10.00 will be payable.

You agree that you are capable of engaging in exercise at the club, and you do not think doing so would be detrimental to your health, safety, comfort or physical condition.

    4. Membership fees
    4.1 The cost of your membership will depend on the type of membership you have selected in your membership application form (Joining Date).
    4.2 Membership fees are either paid annually in advance, six months in advance or monthly by direct debit. If you chose to pay by direct debit, you must complete the instruction to your bank enclosed with your membership application form. A pro-rata sum for the remainder of days remaining in the month within which you join will be collected on or around your Joining Date and the full monthly sum on the first of each month thereafter.
    4.3 We may increase membership fees at any time, for any reason, by giving 30 days’ written notice. If you do not want to pay the higher fees, you may cancel your membership by giving us written notice on or before the 15th day of the month prior to which the higher membership fee is to come into force.

    5.1 You may temporarily freeze your membership for between 1 and 6 complete calendar months for the following reasons only and we may require you to produce proof which is satisfactory to us of any of these reasons that you are relying on to freeze your membership:
    5.1.1 Serious illness; and
    5.1.2 Serious injury
    5.2 If you obtain our prior written agreement, you may extend the period of any membership freeze. Freezing your membership is not the same as cancelling your membership – freezing is a temporary suspension; cancellation is terminating your membership.

    5.4 If we receive your request in accordance with clause 5.3 and agree to freeze your membership, we will do so with effect from the first day of the following month. We cannot freeze it from an earlier date and will not refund any monthly fees paid before your membership was frozen.
    5.5 When you request us to freeze your membership, you will then need to contact us when you wish to resume your membership and return to the club. Please note that once 6 months has passed and your membership has not been resumed in accordance with these terms, your membership will be cancelled.
    5.6 We will not charge you membership fees while your membership is frozen. If we increase our prices during the period when your membership is frozen, you will have to pay any new prices that apply to your membership type when your membership resumes.
    5.7 You will not be allowed to use any of the club facilities while your membership is frozen.

    7. We pass on increases in VAT
