You can request that you get a credit to go another time but only one change & 24 hours beforehand, we do not have time to move you onto another week every week! Just send me an email 24 hours beforehand : ) PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL TO SECURE YOUR SPACE _______________________________________________________ DIRECTIONS TO THE SPORTS HALL: Enter through the sports center on your left of the college. Walk straight down the corridor then turn right Go 20 meters straight pass the buildings and you will find a double door entrance. Enter through two sets of double doors and turn right. From there you will heard people playing badminton so please just come and introduce yourself, we don't bite : ) A FEW BORING NECESSITIES 1. Please guys and gals, please sign up if you want to come, everyone is going to be paying by paypal for their individual sessions. 2. Don't bother bringing a friend unannounced and requesting if they can play, sorry to be harsh but i hate to send friends of friends away. In the rare instance where you are not able to play without your friend or they follow you everywhere, they will have to pay the guest fee of £10.00, this might encourage them to sign up beforehand or they will simply stop following you. Also if you paid for one session, it is for one person to play, you may not take it in turns to play ie splitting the three hours between three people is not acceptable 3. If you paid online and find you cannot make it, you need to drop me an email 24 hours in advance, it is courteous to do so and we will put you on another session when you are free. Anything less than 24 hours, you will not be able to change or get a refund. 4. A lot of people have been asking what's happened to the winner stays on court. what happen was nobody listens to me! Please note the middle court on entrance to the hall is the "Winner Stays On" court. I know some people will forget or simply ignore me but I am relying on you all to remind each other and myself. The winner stays on court, takes place on the last hour of the session 6pm-7pm. 5. I know it is a pain to use paypal sometimes but grab your friend and get them to sign up for you as a plus one........... you pay them cash then NOTE 2 won't apply! The paypal system is ensuring we do not have people joining then cancelling and it has also given us the opportunity to meet some lovely people who would not have been able to join if we were overbooked with a waiting list. 6. Newbies, please don't sign up one week beforehand then ask for a refund on Friday because by booking your space you don't give serious badminton player a chance to book and also requesting a refund tedious and time consuming for me. Sorry but it is true : ( 7. Please do not email me on a SUNDAY asking for any spaces if we are full, just keep an eye out for any cancellations.
