Block bookings: Bookings for 10 or more sessions will qualify your team for auto renewal (this means this slot will be held for you until you tell us you cannot have it- i.e you get first refusal). If we have chased you via email and phone to renew and no answer is forthcoming your slot will be lost. Cancellation Policy :Refunds are provided if: 1. The venue has been double booked 2. The booking is cancelled due to weather conditions. If you have booked a certain date and can no longer make this date if you give more than 48 hours notice then this will be credited against a future booking, otherwise no credit or refund will be given.
