7.3. Where you are on a Rolling Term Contract, your membership shall automatically continue in accordance with Clauses 7.4 and 7.5 below.

We will give you at least 1 calendar month's written notice to the email address you supplied on joining of any increase to the Monthly Fee and, following such increase, we will continue to collect Direct Debit payments for the increased amount every month until your Contract is terminated in accordance with clause 6.2.2, 7.5 or otherwise in accordance with your Contract.

7.5. You may cancel your Rolling Term Contract on giving us three calendar months’ written notice. You may give us notice using the address at the top of these Terms and Conditions or by visiting your Home Club. Your Contract will end at the end of the calendar month of your final payment.

8.1. You acknowledge that it may be necessary for us to close all or parts of our clubs from time to time to carry out refurbishments or repairs and that this may disrupt our provision of the Services.

11.10. Once the Freeze Period expires, your regular payments shall immediately recommence and the length of your Contract (as set out in your Membership Agreement) shall be extended by a period equivalent to the duration of the Freeze Period (the Extended Term). Any Membership Fees due on a monthly basis under your Contract shall continue to be due each month until the end of the Extended Term.

11.11. If you paid by an Upfront Fee, the monthly fee of £5 due during each month of any Freeze Period must be paid and the length of your contract (as set out in your Membership Agreement) shall be extended by a period equivalent to the duration of the Freeze Period (the Extended Term).

13. REFUNDS

13.1. If you cancel your Contract under Clause 11.1 of these Membership Terms and Conditions, we will refund in full all joining fees, Membership Fees and any applicable administration fees, except where you have used the Services during the period set out in clause 11.1 where we will reduce your Membership Fee refund by a pro-rata amount equal to the number of days from signup to the date cancellation was requested.

13.5. If you paid an Upfront Fee and you cancel your Contract under Clause 11.4, you may be entitled to a partial refund of your Membership Fee pro-rated for the remaining months of the Fixed Term although we reserve the right to retain a reasonable sum to reflect any price difference between Contracts for a Fixed Term and those on a Rolling Term (where such Contracts are available). For example, a refund may be calculated as follows:

Refund = Upfront Fee less (number of full months since Contract was entered into multiplied by the standard monthly Rolling Term Membership Fee applicable to those months)

For example, if you entered into a six month Contract at £30, it has been four months since your Contract was entered into and the monthly Rolling Term Membership Fee since you joined has been £7, your refund will be calculated as follows:

Refund = £30 – (4 x £7) = £2
