Membership Terms & Conditions
All of our terms and conditions are displayed below. They are also printed on our membership joining forms.
Memberships Paid for Annually
Persons wishing to become members must complete a membership form. Annual memberships attract a discounted rate, therefore if you decide to terminate this membership early you will not be entitled to a refund. (This does not affect your statutory rights).
Memberships Paid by Monthly Direct Debit
Persons wishing to pay monthly, by direct debit must pay 1 month pro rata upfront on joining (unless otherwise stated). Direct Debits will be taken out of the member’s account on or just after the 1st of each month at the agreed rate. A current direct debit must be in place at all times to keep the membership in operation. Direct Debit prices may be subject to change.
The membership card remains the property of YMCA Fylde Coast and is non-transferable to any other person. The membership card must be used by the registered member only. Members must present the card at reception on each visit before using the facilities. Any loss of a membership card must be reported to a centre’s reception immediately. A replacement card will be issued at a cost of £1. Membership cards must be returned to YMCA Fylde Coast if a membership is cancelled or a cost of £1 will be incurred.
If a member does not attend the facilities having purchased a membership they will not be entitled to a refund of any kind. Members will only be permitted to use the facilities provided that their membership is current and any membership fees are not in arrears (outstanding). Memberships are non-transferable and may be reviewed or discontinued on renewal.
Membership Upgrades / Downgrades
An upgrade or a downgrade of any membership type is at the discretion of YMCA Fylde Coast. All monthly memberships requiring an upgrade or downgrade must complete a new membership application form. Please note all direct debits are taken out of the member’s account at the beginning/middle of each month. To downgrade a direct debit membership, YMCA Fylde Coast require 15 days’ notice in writing. Annual Memberships will not be downgraded.
Change of Details
YMCA Fylde Coast must be notified of any changes from the original membership application form at the earliest possible opportunity. Proof of sickness must be submitted (i.e. Doctor’s note). A membership will not be backdated on hearsay.
Direct Debit Cancellation Notice and Refunds
Members wishing to cancel their membership should contact their nearest YMCA Fylde Coast centre in writing at least 15 days before their next direct debit is due. The YMCA Fylde Coast is under no obligation to refund a membership fee for any reason. The YMCA Fylde Coast may refuse to renew the membership for any reason. It is the member’s responsibility to cancel their direct debit with their bank. No direct debit money shall be backdated or returned to members due to the member’s non-compliance with the terms set out above.
Classes and Use of Equipment
The member must not use any equipment unless they are satisfied that they are competent to do so safely and properly. YMCA Fylde Coast reserves the right to cancel or suspend memberships at any time if a member does not adhere to the safe and proper use of equipment.
Members can pre-book most classes online, by mobile or in person up to 7 days in advance. At least 2 hours’ notice must be given for the cancellation of any bookings, however, classes with limited availability have longer cancellation times. Please check at the time of booking.
Failure to attend any class/facility previously booked, or if a class is not cancelled (a no-show) or cancelled with less than 2 hours notice (for 3 times or more in any one-month period), the customer may lose their advance booking rights for a period up to 7 days across all centres.
