Full details of types of membership can also be found on the website If you have chosen a membership that is discounted, such as a concession or a corporate membership you will need to provide the necessary documentation every twelve months to enjoy the discounted benefit you enjoy with these memberships.

Trafford Leisure will always look to minimise this impact by ensuring that other facilities / centres are available.

The limited rights are: medical illness, pregnancy, redundancy or moving out of the area (10 miles away from one of our centres). In the first instance please contact a member of staff at the centre or email using the appropriate address below. We will require you to provide evidence to support the suspension and if appropriate we will liaise with you and your local GP to see if alternative physical activity within Trafford Leisure maybe more appropriate.
