For UK-based sessions you can cancel with full refund up to 7 days before the session or re-schedule up to 72hrs before the session. We generally incur slope hire costs and arrange for the appropriate number of coaches 7 days prior to a session so we are unable to offer refunds outside of these terms. Where possible, you should re-schedule rather than request a refund. PSR members can re-schedule sessions from the 'My Bookings' page on the website. If you need to request a refund, these are not automated. We are a community club run by volunteers so every manual refund creates work for our volunteer administrators and cost to our club. Please fill in the form from the 'Request a refund for a session' link on the website. The valid reasons for a refund are listed on this form - the only reasons we accept are for Covid or when cancelling >7 days in advance. For non-UK-based bookings the cancellation policy is as per the individual event details.
