My membership was frozen for free - what will happen when the Club reopens?

Once we have been informed of an official reopening date for your Club, your membership will become active again as of that date. Any fees paid for the period of Club closure will not be refunded.  However, we will reduce your next Direct Debit payment by this amount. If you have paid in advance for your membership we will add the days of the closure period back onto your membership so you effectively don't lose any days.

Will the freeze I placed on my membership prior to closure continue as normal?

Yes, all freezes which were requested prior to the closure will continue as requested unless you wish to reactive your membership earlier in order to claim the £200 Reward and Free One Night Stay offer.

What if I am not happy to return at the moment, can I freeze my membership?

You may place a freeze on your membership for a further period for a one-off admin fee of £10 should you wish to continue to have your membership on hold. This freeze must be requested by the 20th of the month to take effect for the following month. Medical related freezes and student & young person memberships freezes remain free of charge, as per our normal terms and conditions. Freeze requests can be made via emailing Please note that you will not receive an immediate response from the team, however if you have emailed us to request a freeze, this will be processed for you and a confirmation sent once complete. 

I've been emailing Member Services to freeze and had no reply!

If you've already emailed us to freeze your membership, please rest assured that we have your request and will process it. Freezes must be requested before the 20th of the month to be processed in time for the month ahead. You'll receive a confirmation once it's complete, so no need to send further emails.



I’ve tried to cancel my membership but could not get through to member services or the Club, what do I do now?

Please email us at Your subscription will be stopped in line with the terms and conditions of your agreement.

I’ve lost my job or had to close my own business and cannot afford to carry on with my membership, can I cancel with no further payment?

All subscriptions will be suspended for the period of closure and no fees will be due for this period of closure. Once we re-open, if you need a further extension to this whilst you get back on your feet, please email to arrange.

I've been emailing Member Services and had no reply!

If you've already emailed us to cancel your membership, please rest assured that we have your request and will process it. You'll receive a confirmation once it's complete. No need to send further emails - it just slows us down. 



I have paid in advance for my membership, can I get my money back? Will my membership be extended?

Your advance paid membership expiry date will be extended in line with the length of the Club closure. All membership cancellations are subject to our standard T&C’s.

I have paid for all of March but you are not open, do I get a refund?

The pro rata fees for the 11 days of closure will be added back to your membership account, resulting in a small credit that will be applied to your next direct debit collection. If you have paid in advance and in full for your membership, your end date will be extended by the period of closure.

Why aren't you reducing membership fees if the squash courts, steam room, sauna and whirlpool are closed?

As you can appreciate, the leisure and hospitality sector has been going through a particularly difficult time, with hundreds of Village staff furloughed or made redundant.

Despite this, over the past few months, we have invested heavily in COVID-19 safety measures, cutting-edge technology and will be operating with additional cleaning to keep you safe when you return to our Clubs. Plus, our fitness teams have worked hard to create free online workouts for all members to enjoy during our period of closure. We place a very high priority on keeping our our loyal members happy, but regret that we are not in a position to offer discounts or refunds for facilities that we are unable to open as a result of Government and Industry Governing Bodies' directives.

Instead, we are adding value to your membership with a Free One Night Stay + £200 Reward for all qualifying members after reopening our Clubs, plus there's an extra £300 Reward for those members ready to re-commit to their contract. The value of these additions is far higher than the savings that would be made from a discount for unused facilities.

I’ve just joined my children on junior memberships, what happens to payments?

Junior memberships will be frozen in line with your adult membership. They will restart when your membership restarts when we re-open.

I joined on 6 months fees at 50% with first DD Oct-20. Will my first DD be later now?

Your membership is suspended for the period of temporary Club closure and will restart when we open again. As such your first DD payment will be extended by the period of closure so you don’t start paying monthly fees until the relevant date.

My subscription is already ending on 31 Mar-20. Do I get a refund?

You can still use the 11 days you have remaining from March, from the date the Club reopens.
