PAYG rates for St Leonard's Land sessions:
For members not wanting to pay the full cost upfront, we are introducing Pay As You Go (PAYG) memberships. This membership also acts as a social membership for those not wanting to train that often. You will still need to purchase Sport and Exercise and Sports Union Memberships. We hope to get as many students involved with the EUGC community as we can!
- PAYG: £20 joining fee + £6 per 3 hour session (will be adjusted proportionally for shorter sessions).
Note: Sessions must be paid in advance via bank transfer. PAYG membership are only available to University of Edinburgh students.
If you would only like to attend external training you should purchase our 'Gymnastics External Training Only Membership', as this will exempt you from the requirement of needing a Sport and Exercise membership. This membership is a joining fee ONLY, you will still need to pay for external training sessions separately. You will also need a British Gymnastics membership to attend external training. More details on this, and all our memberships, can be found in our Buying Your EUGC Membership Guide.
Trampoline Add On:
EUGC members may purchase Trampoline's Gymnastics Add On membership to become a member of both clubs. More details on EUTC's page.
