  • Our acceptance of your application will take place when we write to you to tell you that your membership has been accepted at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us (in these terms, we will refer to that date as your “Joining Date”). You will then be entitled to enjoy member privileges, including use of the Academy’s facilities, subject to the rights and restrictions attaching to the class of membership you applied for example Club or Scratch Membership.
  • If we are unable to accept your application, we will inform you of this and will not charge you. This might be because of a lack of capacity at the Academy or in our reasonable opinion you would not be a suitable candidate for membership.
  • Your membership of the Academy is personal to you and you cannot let any other person use your membership, or give your membership to any other person unless we agree in writing. If you want to transfer your membership permanently to another person, you should ask us in writing. We will not necessarily agree, but we will consider your request fairly. Any proposed replacement member would need to give us the same types of information you gave us on joining, they would need to agree to these terms. If we agree that you can transfer your membership to that other person, we will inform you in writing. In this circumstance, you will need to pay a reasonable administrative charge to deal with our costs of transferring your membership.
  • We will only accept applications from juniors aged 4-16 years (together with an adult), young adults 16-22 years, adults 23-59 years and seniors (over 60 years of age). Each individual member can use the play as you pay facilities or purchase a subscription package be that sole or multi person.
