Session, membership and insurance charges
All session charges are based on a rate of £8.50 for a 90-minute session and this is the rate applied to all Pay-As-You-Go and ad hoc sessions. £8.50 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:
* 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) and then divided the annual costs, which include annual club & ECGA membership, by 12. 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 £8.50 per session.
The club requires one-month written notice of any pre-paying member’s intention to leave the club.
As well as the membership benefits from British Gymnastics, Brentwood trampoline Club is keen to identify other benefits of belonging to the club – in particular it has identified a number of Shopping opportunities to either help save money for yourself or help to keep costs down for the club (which helps control fees).
