Obsessed with knowing everything there is to know about the impact of member behaviour, characteristics and club experience on customer loyalty, we have worked with industry expert, researcher and Associate Professor of Sport and Health Sciences at University of Exeter Dr. Melvyn Hillsdon to produce regular reports for the industry since 2006.
