30.11.2020 - face masks

We will be asking everyone to wear a face mask when travelling around the sports centre when we reopen on Wednesday. This can be removed when you have reached the gym or sports facility, but please have it on otherwise. Many thanks for your understanding.

27.11.2020 - We're reopening!

We are really pleased to announce that we will be reopening on Wednesday 2nd December. For more information on how this will look, please read our reopening communication.

Covid-19 - Sports Centre Closure



02.11.2020 - Sports Centre Closure

Unfortunately, following the Government announcement made recently, we can confirm we will be CLOSED for all activity as of Thursday 5th November. This includes the gym, group exercise classes, and all sports facility bookings.

We will be operating as normal up until closing time on Wednesday 4th, including group exercise classes running.

Direct Debits - we will be instructing Harlands to freeze all memberships for 1 payment. This is quite a time consuming task, so if they are too late to freeze your next due payment, it will be the one after that (December). For queries about your payments, please call Harlands directly on 01444 449156 (option 1).

Our team will either be furloughed or working remotely so no one will be on site to manage the phones. Please send all enquiries to scenquiries@wellswaymat.com.

We will continue to update the website and social media pages with important information.

Direct Debit Information

Direct Debit Information

Important Update - Direct Debits

When we were approved to re-open, we instructed Harlands, the company who manage our Direct Debit payments, to reactivate memberships as of Monday 10th August. Unfortunately but understandably, for reasons beyond our control, this was not actioned and therefore payments were not taken in August 2020.

Harlands are due to imminently communicate directly with members to state what payments will be taken and when, including when your normal monthly Direct Debit will commence.

Although we are the service provider, your membership and direct debit contract is with Harlands (as written into the Ts and Cs upon joining) and therefore, we ask you to contact Harlands directly if you have any queries. You can contact them on 01444 449156 (option 1), or by emailing c.service@harlandsgroup.co.uk. Please be aware they are experiencing a very high volume of enquiries at the moment and are operating with covid19 compromises like many. Your patience and understanding is appreciated during this time.

We have been made aware of some members being contacted to explain when their payments would restart even though they have previously requested to keep their membership frozen. If you experience this, please contact Harlands with the freeze reference number that would have been emailed to you at the time of request.

Many thanks

14.08.2020 - Frozen Memberships

When we reopened on Monday 10th August, all memberships went 'live' again unless you requested to freeze them with Harland's, the company who manage our membership Direct Debits on our behalf.

If you selected to freeze your membership, you chose to freeze the number of payments you make. For example, if your Direct Debit is normally paid on 28th of the month, and you chose to freeze 2 payments, your next payment would not come out until 28th October. This is also the date you are 'live' again and can make gym and class bookings.
