Important changes to our booking cancellations terms and conditions

The introduction of our new IT system at reception has made it necessary for us to revise (with immediate effect) the terms and conditions of court and class booking cancellations at Bracknell Leisure Centre.

Booking cancellations for all court and class bookings:

  • more than 24 hours' notice - no charge
  • less than 24 hours' notice - full charge
  • non attendance - full charge payable on next visit
  • activity tickets not collected from reception will show as a non attendance and will incur an arrear charge

Arrears

The right of customers to book courts and classes will be withheld if the account is in arrears. This charge must be paid within 7 days otherwise the use of all facilities will be withdrawn until the debt is cleared.

We’re here to help. If you have any questions about these changes then please do not hesitate to speak to us at reception or email us at blc.enquiries@bracknell-forest.gov.uk.

Changes to concessionary rate eligibility

Please note that the eligibility for concessionary rate changed to 64 years as of Saturday 1 April 2017.
