IMPORTANT UPDATE – PLEASE READ – CLOSURE LGC
We are all aware of the very difficult crisis hitting the country with the Coronavirus. The Government is telling clubs to close their doors. So, with immediate effect, we are now closed until further notice. Until we can re-open our doors and welcome you all back, please stay in touch with Leeds Gymnastics here on our website, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter.
The board have developed a strategy to ensure we get through this crisis with the survival of the company and to ensure we can continue to employ our fabulous staff. We have a depth of experience on the board and we will do everything in our power to ensure that no stone will be left unturned to ensure we have a club for you all to come back to when this crisis is over. We are moving to a phase when all staff will be working remotely from home so please don’t call and email only if absolutely necessary.
We are acutely aware that on 1 April 2020 fee invoices and direct debits will be generated. Under our terms and conditions (shown on our website) anyone leaving the club will need to give one month’s notice. Once you leave the club, unfortunately, we will offer the place to our waiting list when we reopen. If you wish to leave, we will need email confirmation sending to email@example.com. We hope that you will not wish to do this.
For existing members who wish to remain with the club under our terms and conditions, we have a clause that we can cancel six weeks of classes at our discretion and we are using this clause to give you notification that we will cancel six weeks of classes until the 30 April 2020.
If the April invoice is paid in full and on time, your child’s place will be secured when we reopen. We will not be invoicing any further fees after the April invoice and no further direct debits will be taken until the club resumes classes. We would ask all members not to cancel direct debits as the administration involved in resetting them is huge and another cost to the club.
To clarify, once the April direct debit has been taken, no further direct debit will be taken by us until we reopen and there is no reason to cancel them. Once we are open we will be doing our very best to catch up any hours missed by offering extra sessions, free holiday camps etc over the summer months and half terms.
As a Community Interest Company (CIC) which is a not for profit company, we are concerned about the future of the club and we do not have large reserves of money.
We understand that this crisis is affecting all households and many people are worried for their financial security but we hope that you will feel that we are trying to secure the future of the club and we hope that you understand that by paying the April invoice you will secure your child’s place and we can start promptly when given the all-clear to recommence operations.
The situation is changing hourly and we will continue to monitor advice and issue updates on further changes we might need to make in the future. We hope that everyone will continue to stay safe.

Leeds Gymnastics Club has been in it’s current location since June 2012 and before that was based at Carnegie Regional Gymnastics Centre in Leeds Beckett University’s Beckett Park Campus from 1989 to March 2012. Our history stretches back to the 1970s when the club was the L.A.I. or Leeds Athletic Institute based on Jack Lane near Leeds City Centre.
