Coronavirus update

The Portland Centre is managed and operated by Notts County FC Football in the Community. We are an independent, regional sports development charity supporting the people of Nottinghamshire. We use the power of sport, physical activity and Notts County Football Club to engage and empower local communities and the individuals they serve. Registered Charity No 1091927
As The Portland Centre is currently closed following Government instruction, you will naturally have some questions regarding your membership with us.

Direct Debit Memberships
If you are paying by direct debit for your membership, you have a number of options to choose from for whilst your local centre is closed. Please see your options below:
Option 1 – SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL CENTRE AND NOTTS COUNTY FOOTBALL IN THE COMMUNITY Registered charity 1091927
Many of you have contacted us to say you’d like to continue to support your charitably run leisure centre at this time. A heartfelt thank you for this, any support shown during this difficult time would be gratefully received. Your money will go towards the ongoing running of the leisure centre, making sure it is ready for your return once government restrictions have been lifted, and also towards supporting local community work.
As your Direct Debit is frozen until further notice, if you would like to make a donation to the charity you can do this via BACS
Account Number: 73993272
Sort Code: 20-63-25
Reference: Donation
Option 2 – FREEZE YOUR MEMBERSHIP AT NO EXTRA COST
If you would not like to make a donation at this time, then you can rest assured that we have frozen your membership for the duration of the closure for free. There is nothing else you need to do at this point in time. Please do NOT cancel your direct debit at the bank, this freeze will happen automatically.

All customers that have paid an annual subscription in full
Please be assured, we will credit your annual membership for the period of the centre closure. The credited time will be added to the end of your membership and we will be in touch when we reopen to confirm your new expiry date.

All swimming lesson and block booking customers
Please be assured that we will not be collecting future payments until the centre reopens and so your swimming lessons and block bookings will be automatically frozen, and your space will be reserved (If your account is up to date). Therefore, you do not need to take any action.
In the meantime, we encourage you to take advantage of our fantastic social media links and find out about other pieces of local community work the charity is running here:
