Cancellation of bookings

In order to maximise the number of spaces available for classes and activities we operate a cancellation process. If you cancel a class or activity giving the appropriate notice, there will be no charge.

You are required to cancel bookings by 10am by telephone or online for all those activities taking place that day from 10am onwards.

Please do let us know about cancellations as this will enable us to try to re-let the booking - and 99% of the time we can!

Of course we will not charge customers who fall ill unexpectedly or if they have a valid reason for late cancellation but we may ask you to write to the leisure centre’s facilities manager to confirm this.
