Problems with Village Gym

Has anyone else had problems with aggressive tactics from this group? I joined their Swansea gym in January on a monthly contract so I could cancel when I want. I then gave them 30 days notice on 13 May to say I no longer wanted membership after 14 June. They ignored my e-mail and I did not get confirmation within the 7 days they say they will respond within. I proceeded to cancel my direct debit and stopped using the gym. I am now getting threatening texts and e-mails from them to say I owe them a month's fees and that their cancellation policy is a calendar month notice (i.e. it starts from the 1st if each month) although it does not say this in the T & Cs. Now they are threatening to pass the alleged debt (a whole £36.00) to a debt collection agency. I feel I have done all I could to let them know I wanted to cancel. I dont accept that a month's notice equates to a calendar month and I regard their failure to acknowledge my cancellation e-mail as allowing me to cancel my DD as I said I would. Has anyone else found these people really hard to deal with?
