Any underage person found to be under the influence or in possession of any alcoholic beverage or any person found to be supplying intoxicating liquor to an under 18 year old will be asked to leave the premises immediately.

An Under 18's permit applies to the Bar and CafĂ© on level 2. Unaccompanied under 18's may be present in this area until 8pm.  After this time they will be asked to leave if they are not accompanied by a person over the age of 18.

All charges must be paid before the start of the booked period or in the case of a course before the first coaching period.  The Management may require payment in full at the time of the booking.

In the event of a booking being cancelled within less than 24 hours' notice, or not taken up, the charge shall remain due, but if the booking is resold then the management may, at its discretion, waive the charge.  In the case of outdoor facilities a charge will not be made when adverse weather or surface conditions prevent play from taking place.
