 All Services
 

6.1 You have no right to cancel or change any booking except insofar as we specifically allow you to do so in these terms and conditions – see below.

6.2 There are no 14-day legal cancellation (“cooling off”) rights for Consumers because our Services are related to leisure activities which take place on specified dates or over specified periods.

6.3 We are entitled without giving a refund to suspend the Services including suspension or cancellation of any individual Course session or Event if:

a) acting reasonably, we consider that you have breached any of your relevant obligations in this agreement; or

Courses

6.4 There are no refunds (including credit notes) for late arrivals or missed sessions.

6.5 However, if you miss sessions in Private Group Classes or Term Courses, you may be entitled to up to a certain number of free sessions on equivalent Courses. We call these “Make Up Classes”. Please see our website for details including when Make Up Classes are allowed and, if so, the conditions that apply: help.thelittlefoxesclub.com

6.6 We may offer the option to pay a little extra at the time of booking in return for “cancellation protection”. This is not an insurance policy. Unless otherwise stated when you book, this entitles you to a refund (pro-rata if the Service has started) if you cancel your booking due to unforeseen circumstances which reasonably prevent the Participant from attending the relevant Course, for example illness or accident. We are entitled to ask for proof such as a doctor’s note. 

6.7 We are entitled to cancel, reschedule, move or otherwise change sessions for any reason. If we do so, and the Participant cannot attend the changed session(s), then you are entitled at your option: 

a) for each changed / cancelled session to book a free Make Up Class for the Participant on an equivalent Course (subject to the conditions explained above);or 

b) to a credit note (pro-rata if the Service has started) towards the cost of the Participant attending any of our Courses. See below for the conditions that apply to credit notes.

 

 Leagues

6.8 Participants in Leagues must make reasonable efforts to remain committed for the entire term / season. There are no refunds (including credit notes) for late arrivals or missed sessions / matches or if a Participant resigns. Future instalments remain payable in such circumstances. 

6.9 We may offer the option to pay a little extra at the time of booking in return for “cancellation protection”. This is not an insurance policy. Unless otherwise stated when you book, this entitles you not to pay future instalments if you cancel your booking due to unforeseen circumstances which reasonably prevent the Participant from continuing to participate in the League, for example illness or accident. We are entitled to ask for proof such as a doctor’s note. NB This option does not entitle you to a refund of payments previously made.

6.10 We are entitled to cancel, reschedule, move or otherwise change matches or training sessions for any reason. There will be no refunds.

 

 Events 

6.11 You can cancel an Event by emailing us in which case the following cancellation policy applies: 

a) If you cancel eight weeks or more before the Event date, there will be a full refund less our planning fee (£50 unless otherwise stated on our site) and less any fees for extras which we have already incurred.

b) If you cancel between 32 days and eight weeks before the Event date, we will issue a credit note for the amount of the contracted fee towards the cost of any new Event. See below for the conditions that apply to credit notes.

c) If you cancel within 31 days of the Event date, there will be no refund / credit note. 

6.12 We are entitled to suspend or cancel an Event at any time if we think there are safety grounds to do so, for example very severe weather conditions such as lightning, high winds or flooding, or in case of misbehaviour by attendees or others present. If so, there will be no refund but we may in our discretion agree to reschedule the Event at a reduced or no fee. You acknowledge that we are an all-weather company and will not cancel an Event merely because of rain or other inclement weather. It is your responsibility to book an indoor venue as a back-up if weather is a concern. 

 

 Credit notes

6.13 Any credit notes that we issue can only be applied to Courses / Events (whichever is relevant) which must be booked and take place within 12 months from the date of issue (or any alternative period stated on our website at the time of your booking). There may still be a difference for you to pay, for example if our fees have increased in the meantime.

 

7. Applicable to Courses only

7.1 You promise that Participants will:

a) behave in a reasonable and non-disruptive way; and

b) comply with our reasonable requests and with any rules of the venue operator which they are told about.

If not, or if we otherwise think it necessary to protect us or others we are entitled to suspend or expel them without refund.

7.2 We may offer you a “taster class” for certain courses. If so, there is no fee payable unless you proceed with a full booking, in which case the fees for the taster class will be included. Attending a taster class does not guarantee a place on the full Course.
