Bodyscene Leisure Club Terms & Conditions
1. Main Terms of Agreement
This is an agreement between Hellaby Hall Hotel ltd. And Bodyscene Leisure Club (hereafter named as Bodyscene), the member who has signed this agreement (hereafter named as the Primary Member), and all members included in this agreement (hereafter named as Member or Members).
Where this agreement is for the membership of more than one person, the primary member undertakes to take responsibility for the conduct and membership payments of all other members joining under this agreement and any other members added during the term of this agreement.
This agreement remains valid until terminated by either Bodyscene or the primary member. Please see section 5 of this agreement for more information regarding the termination procedures.
The initial contract is three months, unless a longer repayment offer has been taken up by the primary member, in which case the initial contract period is the duration of the repayment. If a person joins within the current month, a pro-rata payment will be taken to cover the remainder of the month. The 3 month term begins from the 1st of the following month after joining.
2. Fees and Charges
Bodyscene may charge a joining fee or an administration fee which is at the discretion of the management. There is a monthly fee applicable to each class of membership. Classes of memberships are as follows:
Standard Individual Membership
Standard Joint Membership
Standard Corporate Membership
Upfront Single membership. 6 month. 12 months
Child Membership 0-4 years inclusive
Child Membership 5-15 years inclusive.
Current monthly charges for each category of membership applicable to this agreement are shown in schedule one of this agreement. For child members the membership class and monthly fee applicable will change on the first of the month following the member’s 5th or 16th Birthday. On a member’s 16th Birthday, the membership will be converted to a Standard Individual Membership.
Joint memberships are available to any two people but must be set up with one direct debit.
For child memberships, we may ask for documentation to verify the child’s date of birth. For this verification, a passport, ID card or Birth Certificate will be accepted.
Following the initial contract period, Bodyscene reserves the right to make changes to the monthly membership fees at any time by giving one calendar month notice period to the primary member. This notice will be sent via email to the email address shown in schedule one of this agreement. Where no email address is given, this notice will be sent via standard post. Changes to VAT will result in membership fees being varied by the amount of net change in VAT from the first direct debit collection date after the change takes effect.
Monthly membership fees will be collected by direct debit on the first working day of every month
For the avoidance of doubt, the primary member is required to make a regular monthly payment whether or not the facilities are used by any of the members covered by this agreement in any given month.
By signing this agreement, the primary member agrees to Bodyscene collecting a monthly direct debit for the amount shown in schedule one of this agreement, as varied by any changes in monthly membership fees and amendments to the membership numbers and categories covered in this agreement.
Should a direct debit be rejected by the primary member’s bank, or if any other form of payment is dishonored, the primary member will be responsible for such bill and the repayment of that. Entry will not be permitted until such bill is paid in full.
All sums payable under this agreement are inclusive of VAT at the prevailing rate.
If the primary member fails to make payment under the terms of this agreement, once such an amount is outstanding for more than 30 days, Bodyscene reserves the right to pass the debt to a third party collection agency for recovery. The primary member will be responsible for all reasonable costs incurred in employing the third party debt collection agency for this purpose
