David Lloyd Clubs Acton Park FAQ
Why is the club opening in May?
Initially this was due to some delays with planning, leading to a more complex building project than was anticipated. This, coupled with the inclement weather conditions recently has slightly delayed our build programme. However, both our internal construction project management team and our contractors are confident we will be open and ready to welcome members by 31st May, if not before.
Which David Lloyd Clubs can I make use of in May prior to Acton Park opening?
You can enjoy all other David Lloyd Clubs (excluding the Harbour Club Chelsea, Kensington and Notting Hill). Our most local clubs are: Fulham, Sudbury Hill and Heston.
I haven’t received my membership card yet. Can I still access other David Lloyd Clubs?
Yes absolutely. You will get asked some security questions upon arrival at the club but that’s just so we know who you are. If you would like to get your membership card before we open then you are welcome to pop into the Membership suite at the club and we take your photo and print your card off for you.
When will my direct debit start?
All direct debit payments will start on June 1st. Monthly membership fees will then be taken on the first of every month thereafter.
How long is my membership for?
Your membership is a rolling contract for an indefinite period, with an initial term of 12 months. This means it doesn't renew each year, it continues beyond your initial term unless you tell us otherwise and provide the required notice period.
Can I still use other David Lloyd Clubs once Acton Park is open?
Yes, you can still enjoy other David Lloyd Clubs (excluding the Harbour Club Chelsea, Kensington and Notting Hill).

If your children are enrolled in lessons at another David Lloyd Club/Harbour Club Kensington/Notting Hill they are more than welcome to finish the term there or if you prefer we can transfer them over to Acton Park so that they can join one of our courses.
Can I change my membership category?
You are able to upgrade to a more premium membership category at any time by speaking to your membership team and completing a transfer form but you cannot downgrade in the initial 12 month term. We are happy to look at your individual circumstances and requests on a case by case basis, we will also have a grace period of 14 days after we open to allow you to amend your membership.
Do I have to pay for parking?
No, parking is included in all memberships. However, we are part of the London Travel Plan Initiative and are working alongside Ealing council to reduce our carbon footprint as a club and we are encouraging our members and team members to use modes of transport other than cars to get to the club, so we ask that you travel in by other means wherever possible.
Can I use the gym as soon as the club opens?
Yes, we will be communicating all information regarding our group gym orientations nearer the time of opening and actively trying to involve all our members to ensure you get the most out of your membership and all our facilities. During May, your David Lloyd Acton Park Fitness Team will be visiting local clubs to meet you, answer any questions and most importantly, get your induction/gym programme completed. We will communicate the details of this in due course.
I joined David Lloyd from being an original Park Club member who is currently using Harbour Club Kensington and or Notting Hill, can I continue to use them?
Yes, you can continue to make use of the clubs until we open and thereafter you will only be able to use all David Lloyd Clubs.
When do I receive Guest passes?
You will all receive 2 guest passes every year on the anniversary that you joined the club, these will expire 1 year from the date of issue.
If you are a platinum member an additional 12 guest passes will be loaded on to your account by the 31st May and these guest passes will expire on the 31st December 2018. You can view all your guest passes on the David Lloyd App, also the reception team will be able to check these for you at the Front Desk and redeem them when you wish to use them.
What happens when mine, or my child’s age changes and we no longer fall into the same membership bracket we initially joined on?
Your membership will automatically be transferred to the next available option for your age bracket. When this is a case of moving to a membership where more than one option is available to you, we would then advise for you to come in and speak to one of our membership advisors. We will then be able to help you choose the best option for you.
Can I freeze my membership?
Yes, you can freeze your membership once over a period of 12 months. You can freeze for a minimum of 2 months and up to a maximum of 9 months at a time. You will be charged 25% of your monthly membership for each month you are frozen. Like your membership, this will be charged on the 1st of each month and you can only freeze your membership from the 1st of the month. You can freeze your child’s membership for free, like the adult membership this can be for a minimum of 2 months and up to a maximum of 9 months at a time and can only be frozen from the 1st of the month. Your initial term will be extended by the amount of time for which your membership is frozen if you decide to freeze during this period.
Can I freeze my membership if I have a medical reason for not being able to use the club?
Yes, you can freeze your membership for free if you have a medical reason which is preventing you from using facilities; all we would require is clear medical documentation for this. We cannot freeze the membership under medical grounds due to pregnancy unless due to a medical complication that arises during pregnancy or we have a letter confirming you are unable to use the club from your doctor.
