General Membership Frequently Asked Questions

When do you pay membership fees?

Our standard memberships are periodic (ongoing) with membership fees paid in advance every second Thursday from a bank account or credit card. Please note debits may take several days to come out of your account.

You can pay for memberships upfront in 6-month blocks. Please ask Customer Service for further details.

Your reponsibilities

It is your responsibility to make sure:

  • Your account can accept direct debits
  • There is enough money in your account on the payment day and the next 5 days
  • You provide updated payment details with a minimum of 48 hours before the next debit
  • You request in writing to stop direct debits

Failed direct debit payments incur a $10 administration fee.

What happens if your payment is late or fails?

If your direct debit fails you will be notified by SMS to the number provided. Access may be stopped due to an outstanding balance; you will be prompted to pay the outstanding balance at your next visit or it will be automatically added onto your next direct debit. Failed direct debits incur a $10 administration fee.

We will continue to debit your nominated account without notice to receive the total amount owed to us. We will make reasonable effort to let you know beforehand by SMS, email and phoning you.

Changes to agreement terms and conditions

We may modify our terms and conditions at any time, including the club’s opening and closing hours, its services, facilities and membership fees. The most up-to-date terms and conditions can be found on the Centre’s website. We will notify you in writing at least 28 days prior to any fee increases.

Can I suspend my membership?

Memberships (excluding Program Memberships) may be suspended for a minimum of 2 weeks and a maximum of 26 weeks at a time by submitting an Amendment Form to Customer Service (form available from Customer Service). Suspension requests must be submitted a minimum of 3 days prior to the start date of the suspension and the first proposed non/reduced payment date. The first 4 weeks of suspension per calendar year are free after which suspension will be charged at $5 per week. All medical suspensions are free of charge upon the presentation of a valid medical certificate that covers all requested dates of suspension. Suspensions, including for medical reasons, cannot be back-dated. The Member agrees that in the event that he or she does not attend the Centre or use the facilities for any period during the Membership without previously arranging suspension of Membership, the Member will have no entitlement or right to claim and the Centre will not be liable to reimburse any fees or other payments made by the member.

Membership paid upfront and visit passes cannot be suspended put on hold, cancelled or transferred.

Using your membership card

Members will receive a membership card with an attached digital photo. If you visit the Centre without your membership card or photo identification, we may refuse you entry. If you lose or damage your card, we will replace one card every 12 months for free.

How to cancel membership

The Centre requires 14 days written notice of cancellation, which means one more direct debit will be charged after the Cancellation Request form is submitted to customer service. Your access to the Centre will cease 14 days after the last direct debit payment. All outstanding fees must be paid in full prior to cancellation. We reserve the right to cancel your membership if two or more direct debit drawings are returned unpaid by your nominated Financial Institution and you fail to arrange an alternate payment method. Credits on your account are non-refundable. The Centre advises you to contact your Financial Institution to confirm the termination of further direct debits after any final payments are successfully paid.
