Membership information and cancelling bookings

Direct debit payments

We are contacting all members to tell them when we will start to take direct debit payments again.

If you have cancelled your direct debit at the bank, we need a new instruction from you. Please contact us and the team will be happy to help.

I pay upfront/monthly

We will extend your membership access to the centre by adding extra time to your unexpired membership duration. This will be at no cost and will reflect the time that we have been closed.

I am classed as high-risk, so I can’t come back yet, what can I do about my membership?

We understand that it’s not possible for everyone to return and we’re happy to continue to freeze your membership. Please contact us and the team will be happy to help.

I just don’t feel ready to come back yet, what can I do about my membership?

We understand that it’s not possible for everyone to return and we’re happy to continue to freeze your membership. Please phone us on 0121 752 1344 between 8am and 5pm (Monday to Friday), and the team there will be happy to help.
