Programmed and Bookable Activities
- Subscription members can book 7 days in advance. Subscription members must ensure they cancel a booking no less than 3 hours before the session start time to avoid a strike against the membership. A strike is issued when a member:
a). Makes a late cancellation – a late cancellation is when a member cancels their booking within three hours of the session start time. A late cancellation makes it harder for us to offer a vacant slot to other customers.
b). Does not attend their activity
Three incidents of non-attendance or late cancellation, within a 30-day period, will result in a strike against the membership account resulting in a 7-day ban on bookings.
These strikes can be viewed in the online membership account.
We understand that there will be rare occasions where a customer misses a booking and cannot contact us in advance and when an emergency arises it is not always possible to cancel a booking. Members can contact us to discuss these incidents.
2. Peak swimming sessions.
For busy sessions at Cleethorpes Leisure Centre, we operate a coloured banding system for all our customers, including those on subscription memberships. Coloured bands give you 1 hour and 15 minutes in the pool. During these peak times, it may mean that you have to wait a short time to access the changing village and pool. We endeavour to keep waiting times to an absolute minimum.
