Contract types

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 the Icon for pdf Swimming standard membership payment - terms and conditions (PDF, 60.4kb) .
