How can I pay for my membership?

Annual Membership can be purchased using our Memberships page. Annual membership can also be purchased in person at Sport Central. Payment must be made in full by either cash, cheque or credit/debit card before any use of sport facilities or services takes place.

Monthly membership paid by Direct Debit can be purchased using our Memberships page.  Monthly membership may also be purchased in person at Sport Central.

Direct Debit payments will be collected from your account on the 1st of each month or the nearest working day after that date and relate to the month ahead. When purchasing a Direct Debit membership, a pro-rata payment will be required for the amount that relates to the time between the membership contract being entered into and the first Direct Debit collection date. If purchasing online, this amount must be paid for by Credit or Debit Card. Payment may also be made in cash or cheque if purchasing in person at Sport Central.

Please note however that any membership contracts entered into after the 15th of the month will be liable for a longer pro-rata payment as it will not be possible due to the processing time required to collect on the 1st of the following month

Example A: If a membership contract were entered into on the 10th November, a pro-rata payment for the period 10th November to the 30th November would be payable. The first Direct Debit deduction would take place on the 1st December and relate to the month of December.

Example B: If a membership contract were entered into on the 16th November, a pro-rata payment for the period 16th November to the 31st December would be payable as the deadline for processing would have been missed. The first Direct Debit deduction would take place on the 1st January and relate to the month of January.
