When you've chosen your swimming membership, there are two different contract types, and you may pay less because you come under a concession.
12 month contract
If you commit to a 12 month swimming contract, you sign up to the membership for 12 months, with your membership payment taken out of your account each month for a year. Download theand .
No contract (pay monthly)
If you do not want to commit to a 12 month swimming membership, you can now take advantage of our no-contract membership. Download theand .
This offers you the flexibility to use the swimming facilities for as long or as little as you want. You can take out a non-contract membership from as little as one to 12 months with a cancellation period of 30 days' notice.
