Members will be charged on their regularly scheduled billing date. For members with add-ons on their memberships which are currently not available, (towel service, VIP service, Kid Zone, etc.) we will deduct that fee from your monthly billing statement.
Does the billing for the Annual Enhancement fee change?
Yes. If you were scheduled to be billed during the quarantine your new annual enhancement fee billing month will be in the month we reopen. The date will remain the same in the new month.

Will I get any credit for the days the club was closed in March?
When we were required by the government to close our clubs in mid-March, we immediately suspended drafting membership dues. As a result, we have credited members with the same days of club usage without additional dues to account for the days remaining in March 2020 that our clubs were not accessible. To compensate our members, when our clubs start to reopen in June, we will not charge any membership dues for the remaining days in June. Membership billing will commence July 1, 2020. If your club doesn't open until July, the credit will be applied to that month's dues.
