Session, membership and insurance charges
Session fees are based on an annual charge paid in 12 equal monthly instalments. We review fees every year in September. Our base-rate was set at £9.50 for a 90-minute session from September 2021; this is the rate applied to all Pay-As-You-Go and ad hoc sessions. Pre-booked and pre-paid sessions benefit from a discount scheme available to those willing to pay by monthly* direct debit as follows:
|2021/22 Monthly Payment|
* NOTE: In calculating an average month we have taken into account the number of times sessions are unable to run for predictable reasons such as bank holidays, school activities etc… (typically 4 per year). Should there be a material difference, members may ask for either a rebate or an opportunity to make up the missed sessions over holidays etc… when we regularly have spaces.
Those unable or unwilling to pay in advance, or attending only on a pay-as-you-go basis (e.g. adult sessions), will continue to pay the full £9.50 per session.
The club requires one-month written notice of any pre-paying member’s intention to leave the club.
British Gymnastics Membership & Insurance
After a few trial sessions, members must take out British Gymnastics membership. Membership provides insurance cover against accident with rates varying depending on age and level of participation. You can find out more about membership on the British Gymnastics website.
BG offers another insurance option. The ‘Block Registration Scheme’ (BRS) is suitable if you only attend on an ad hoc basis . In case of injury or other incident, the levels of benefit are lower than for full membership. The club covers the costs of BRS.
In addition to BG, Eastern Counties Gymnastics Association levy an additional annual charge. Our monthly charges cover this cost.
British Gymnastics membership provides a number of benefits to members as shown below. These rates typically change annually but full details can be found on the BG website here.
