The performance centre offers a membership similar to a gym where you pay a monthly fee (based upon the number of sessions, with a 2 week allowance for holidays) and this fee remains the same regardless of whether you attend all or none of the sessions. In this way the club is able to keep its fees low. It also enables the Performance Centre to continue to offer training at the same rates across the whole of the year even when attendance levels have dropped off. This is the model that the club wishes to operate as it meets the demands of its members for training in the summer and keeps costs low for players that attend all year round. If your account is not in credit then you will not be able to train.
The bank accounts details for the club are;- BG Performance 40-17-10 42074923
Charges are per mth and are based upon the number of sessions in the year.
Payment must be made in advance of training sessions, and payment should be made via Standing Order (click for form) on the 1st of the month.
The charges have been reduced by 2 weeks to allow for holidays. Outside of this 2 week allowance there are no refunds for short term illness/holidays. Any long term absences must be discussed and agreed with the coaches.
Twice a week attendance is known as FULL membership, and one session a week as HALF membership. HALF sessions costs are 10% higher than FULL session costs.
The club needs to know in advance how many players to expect and on which nights to be able to plan training and have the right number of coaches attending. To benefit from the rates listed below, the club requires members to commit to the club and give at least one months notice should they wish to change membership type. Changes to membership must be agreed with the coaches and can only take place at the start of a month.
There is a Pay as you Go (PAYG) option for when people can’t commit to attending every week. – e.g. they can only attend when they come home from university, and the rate for these sessions can be higher. This PAYG must be agreed in advance with the coaches.
The costs are calculated using the following session rates and includes a £25.00 charge which will be refunded if you volunteer at tournaments or as a committee member.
