Member Notice Club subscriptions and Closure

Member Notice

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Ipswich Sports Club Executive met remotely this evening to discuss whether to close all facilities and also the issue of membership fees.
 
It has been decided that due to the ever increasing measures being put in place and the continuing spread of Coronavirus, the Club will close all facilities for the time being until further notice.  We feel that this is the responsible thing to do in the exceptional circumstances facing this country at this time.  Do not come and use the outdoor facilities – they are closed until further notice.
  
  
Monthly Members
 
The Club will not be collecting any Direct Debit payments with effect from 1 April 2020 and whilst the Club facilities remain closed, so no money will be drawn from members’ Bank Accounts until further notice.  This will therefore apply to all Monthly members who have not cancelled their Direct Debits.
 
It will also apply to those who have contacted the Club since it closed on Friday, 20 March 2020 and have not yet had a response regarding suspension due to the influx of enquiries following the sudden closure, so please do not worry.  We appreciate your patience and support during this difficult time.
 
Unfortunately, if members have already cancelled their Direct Debit Instructions, this will be processed as a membership cancellation rather than a suspension, and we hope to welcome you back in the future.
 
Annual Members
 
For members who have paid upfront on an annual basis for their membership, the Club will simply add time onto members’ current membership term to cover the period of closure of the facilities.  This will be processed at the time of your next current renewal date of membership.
 
 
This does mean that the Club will have little or no revenue coming in for the foreseeable future.  Fortunately we have some cash reserves so we will be able to meet our essential outgoings in the short term but this situation could continue for far longer and cause the Club significant difficulties over time.
 
Ipswich Sports Club, like some other clubs in a similar position, are asking members to consider diverting their membership payments or making donations into a fund.  We have received many messages already from members wanting to continue their support, irrespective of whether the facilities close.
 
The facilities have only been closed for a matter of days and already people are realising just how big a part of their life the Club is.  It is for that reason that any support you can give will be invaluable to our recovery and getting back to normal.
 
Payments should be set up as a standing order or one-off payment as follows:  Sort Code 30-94-55 and Account Number 04745168.  Please ensure that you put DONATION as the reference, followed by your surname and if possible your membership number eg. DONATION/SMITH 1234.
 
The Club has worked tirelessly to get to its current position so to have this happen is truly heart breaking but we will get through this.  It is also important to remember that the priority must be to slow the spread of the virus and in doing so to save lives.
 
We are working with our staff to make appropriate arrangements for them at what is an incredibly difficult time.
 
We wish you all the best.  Your health and well-being is the most important thing so please stay safe and adhere to the Government advice.
 
We will continue to monitor developments daily and we will keep you updated over the coming weeks with any changes.
 
 
CLUB EXECUTIVE

Government Announcement – Club Closure

In response to the announcement from the Prime Minister Friday evening the club is now closed.  We will take guidance from the authorities on what activities we are allowed to continue. A further update will be sent out on Monday.

All this information is very new and we will be looking into how this impacts us all in the coming days. I am sure you will all have lots of questions and queries especially on membership and we ask that you allow us a few days to send out further communication and will aim to answer all your questions.
