3. Bookings, Cancelations and Refunds Policy
When you make a booking, please read and check your booking carefully before submitting it. After a booking has been made you will be sent a Booking Confirmation with details of your booking session including payment confirmation, date of the Event, number of participants, payment and all other details relevant to the booking. It is your responsibility to check that the details on the Booking Confirmation are correct and you must advise Axed of any inaccuracies within 24 hours of making the booking.
We may contact you to say that we do not accept your booking. This is typically for the following reasons:
- we cannot carry out the booking (this may be because, for example, we have a shortage of staff);
- we cannot authorise your payment;
- you are not allowed to buy the services from us;
- we are not allowed to sell the services to you; or
- there has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the services.
We will only accept your booking when we email you to confirm this. At this point:
- a legally binding contract will be in place between you and us; and
- we will provide the services as agreed during the online booking process.
Upon confirmation of your booking you will receive a booking reference number. In making a booking with us, acceptance of this Contract is understood and in the case of group bookings, that the person making the booking is responsible for making all members of his or her group aware of this Contract.
All bookings are non-refundable, unless stated otherwise in this Contract.

All bookings are non-transferable, except at the discretion of Axed. Only in extenuating
circumstances will bookings be considered for transfer and where at least a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of request is given via email.
The time, date and location of your booking cannot be altered, however if you require an alteration, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you. Once a booking has been made, amendments can only be made with prior agreement from us.
If you cancel your booking, the following provisions apply:
- your reservation deposit is non-refundable;
- if you cancel before your final balance is due then no further payments will be required from you;

Session times that are not filled by the minimum number of players may be rescheduled or cancelled. If this is the case, you will be contacted to arrange an alternate date and/or time.

In the unlikely event that our terms and/or availability for your group changes after your booking is confirmed, we will do our best to ensure that your Event is rescheduled. If we are unable to make an alternative arrangement to your booking you will be given a full refund for that part of your booking. Alternatively, gift vouchers can be offered to the equivalent value of your booking.
In any event, we shall not be liable for any delays or any failure to perform any of our obligations under this Contract, caused by any event outside our control, including but not limited to, a global pandemic, acts of terrorism, natural disasters, poor weather conditions and the declaration of war.

- we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and
- our obligations under this Contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the event outside our control. Where the event outside our control affects our performance of your booking, we will restart the booking as soon as reasonably possible after the event outside our control is over.
We will only cancel this Contract if the event outside our control continues for longer than 4 weeks and we agree that your booking cannot go ahead. In this case, we will refund you the amount paid for your booking, minus the reservation deposit which is non-refundable.

This Contract is personal to you and your group. You or your group shall not assign, transfer or charge your rights and responsibilities under these conditions or any of them, without our prior written consent.

We reserve the right to make changes to this Contract as necessary.
