What happens to those who have paid in full for annual memberships?
Your membership has been suspended as of Monday 23 March and your membership will be extended by the length of time that the Fitness Centre remains closed.

All cancellation rules we’ve changed for this period will be reinstated once we re-open. To cancel your membership please complete the Cancellation Form and send it to sportanu-sport [dot] com [dot] au. Then, once all outstanding fees have been paid, your membership will be cancelled.
Can my Club continue to train or participate in competition and social activities?
All club Operations have been CANCELLED or POSTPONED including and extending beyond the ANU campus facilities. This decision has been made by ANU Sport with strong support from the University to mitigate the risk to our students and the ANU community being exposed to COVID-19. Please note all ANU Sport facilities are unavailable for hire.
Does this mean my Club is not operational at the moment?
ANU Sport is encouraging all clubs to maintain engagement with their Club community via digital platforms. It is important to follow the Government advice around social distancing and self-isolation, but we encourage Clubs to continue online engage to support their members and the community.
Has my membership been cancelled, or can it be refunded?
Each Club is responsible for their own refund policy. ANU Sport has advised Clubs to consider a full refund or pro-rata refund pending what Club activities have already occurred this year. If you have joined a Club as an Associate member of ANU Sport (i.e. not a student or life member) and wish to receive a refund for your ANU Sport Club Affiliation Fee, you will need to complete the refund request form and have your Club confirm they are refunding your membership. This Fee will be a pro-rate amount of the total $120 paid.
