Football Block Booking Regulations 

These regulations must be adhered to otherwise the booking will be reviewed and could result in cancellation.

  1. Block bookings are only available to members.

  2. All booking must be paid in full at reception prior to playing, due to insurance regulations.

  3. 48 hours notice is required to cancel a booking, otherwise the full price is charged for the booking. This must be paid by the following week and failure to pay may result in the the block booking being cancelled.

  4. Once a booking has been cancelled you cannot turn up and book the same slot for half price on a casual basis.

  5. If the block booking is to be cancelled at any stage before membership expires, 4 weeks notice in writing is required.

  6. Block bookings will only run for the length of time of the membership. 

  7. If the block booking is to continue thereafter, there must be no break in the renewal of the membership. If there is any break in membership then the slot will be offered to the next team on the waiting list. Members must remember when their cards expire and renew them so there is no break in membership, as the booking will be automatically cancelled.

    For example: if the membership card expires on Thursday 07/09/2004. Your block booking is every week on Mondays at 7pm therefore your last game will fall on Monday 04/09/2004. In order to retain your block booking you must renew that day so that the block booking can continue.

  8. If the dome has any major functions taking place that will affect your block booking then you will be informed in advance.
