Annual membership fees cannot be refunded.


NON-PAYMENT OF FEES

 

The Club is run by volunteers, who are committed to making the most effective use of all resources on behalf of the members.  Non-payment through cards being declined for processing causes additional burden for them to resolve.

 

In the first instance an email will automatically be generated notifying of any card processing failures.  More often than not this simply tends to be due to card issuers implementing additional security checks, but may also be due to other reasons.

 

Where there has been no explanation and Fees remain unpaid for more than 21 days, the club will take the following steps:

  • You will be unable to declare attendance or register for Meets via Team Unify
  • Your swimmer may be unable to take part in training sessions
  • You will be prevented from any other expenditure on your account

 

Every circumstance will be treated individually and should you wish to speak in confidence about your account please contact the Treasurer.
