Not mine, sadly. I wrote to them about the price increases, and even went in to see the membership team, but they didn't offer anything. So off I go at the end of this month ...

I think a lot of these clubs are negotiable on price. At least when I was looking around a few that is the impression I got.

Exactly the same with me. I'd been a member for over 20 years. You'd think they might want me to stay, but no ...

DL is too expensive.
I let DS join because most of his mates joined, so it was his social life. Luckily they have mostly given up their memberships so DS volunteered to give up his too (for somewhere cheaper) and I didn't argue too much.
I was surprised that DL accepted the resignation so easily - no attempt at trying to lure him back.

Thanks. Very helpful. Think it is a bit expensive for me though.

we pay 190 a month - me, DH and two teenagers
the kids use the pool, do the teen classes and DS gets subsidised tennis. DH and I swim and I do a shed load of Yoga

We will only use weekends and for tennis/swimming. We've no free courts near us (bah) and DS is rather good at it.

Yes I too went to DL for a series of baby swim classes and was blown away by the facilities. My usual gym is OK but not a pAtch on DL.

For two adults and one child (who costs very little due to his age) it is about£1500 for the year. We use a lot of the kids clubs, events and classes so I do feel we get our money's worth but you need to use it a lot to make it worth whie.

I made the mistake of going to one of those gyms and falling in love with it. I've now realised there's no way I can afford it and the back up gym seems even shittier in comparison now. sad

Think each club is different rates.

nellyjelly Sun 06-Jan-13 16:42:10

Thanks. Sounds it might be a bit expensive. I have 2 DC of 2 and 6. It is just that their facilities are great. I will try ringing. I can't believe they do 't do a flat rate. Not much transparency there!

Moominsarehippos Sun 06-Jan-13 14:37:13

Ask for special deals. They dont advertise fees as they work them out individually. Anyone know about The Harbour (Nottinh Hill)?

BigStickBIWI Sun 06-Jan-13 14:35:18

No idea re family membership but I was do pissed off by recent price rises that I have resigned my membership and joined Virgin Active. £61 a month for me. DL wanted £92.75!

mermaidbutmytailfelloff Sun 06-Jan-13 14:34:18

I paid about £170 for me, dh and ds including tennis

Any idea of how much a family membership would be? Their website gives no info.
