Whichever level of membership is right for you, the membership fees payable, via your club, as of 1st October 2016 – 30th September 2017 are as follows (Please be aware that the fees are currently at a reduced price due to where we are within the membership year):

Once we have received and processed your fees, you will receive a membership pack containing your very own official British Gymnastics Welcome letter, certificate and membership card to show you are part our our gymnastics community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. I am a competitive gymnast and I need to renew my silver membership before 1st October as I am entering a competition in October, how can I do that?
A. Your club is able to renew your membership from 1st September.

Q. If I decide not to continue with gymnastics part way through the year can I have a refund?
A. New participants are entitled to 2 free taster sessions and then have the option of taking out a temporary membership of 6 weeks if they are not sure of their continued participation.
It is more cost effective to take the full year bronze membership but this choice should be made on joining as we do not operate a refund policy.

Q. I have been out of the sport for some time, am I considered to be a new member?
A. Members who have been out of the sport for a full membership year are considered to be a new member. If you have been out of the sport for less than a full membership year, your membership will be treated as continuous and the full annual fee will be payable.

Q. I am entering my first Regional competition in February and only have Bronze membership. What can I do?
A. Your club can upgrade your membership to Silver at any point in the year – you only pay an upgrade fee that takes into account the fee you have already paid for your Bronze membership .

Q. I regularly attend classes at two different gymnastics clubs. Do I need to be a member at both clubs?
A. Provided both clubs are British Gymnastics affiliated clubs you only need one BG membership to take part in as many classes as you want.
