You can register on the ACLO website. You need to have a valid SPR membership to register for these courses. ATTENTION! If your attendance is to low (at least 4 out of 5 times or 8 out of 10 times) you will receive a fine on your pass and your membership will be blocked. You can pay this fine (€ 10,-) at the reception of the Sports Center, after which your membership will be reactivated immediately.
I want to cancel my SPR membership, how do I do this? Membership with the SPR is for a minimum of one year. This can therefore only be canceled after one year. To cancel you must send an email to SPR@rug.nl.
My contract with the RUG/Hanze/UMCG ends, do I still have to cancel my membership at the SPR? Yes, unfortunately your contract is not linked to your SPR membership. As a result, we cannot see whether a contract ends and therefore cancel the membership. Cancellation of your membership must therefore be done by sending an email to SPR@rug.nl.
Do I have to register for the sporthours of the SPR? Generally not, with a few exceptions. For Yoga, Pilates and Kickboxing you have to register in advance, there is a maximum number of participants. You may be placed on a waiting list and as soon as a spot is available you will be notified. You can register for these 3 lessons by mail email@example.com. For tennis hours, swimming hours and the group lessons at the ACLO Station you have to make a reservation trough the ACLO website. You can visit all other sporthours of the SPR without having to make a reservation.
My partner does not work for the Hanze or RuG, can they become an SPR member as well?
