2. Entering into a legally binding contract
2.1 A contract between you and us will come into being in one of two ways:
2.1.1 when you make a booking on our website to attend a Session, we and you will enter into a legally binding contract on the date you make the booking; or
2.1.2 where you and we agree orally that you will attend a Session, there will be a legally binding contract on the date of our oral agreement.
2.2 We suggest that before you make a booking on our website or orally agree to attend a Session, you read through these terms and conditions. If you have any questions concerning them, please ask us.
2.3 You should keep a copy of these terms and conditions for your records.
3. Providing the Services
3.1 Once we and you have entered into a legally binding contract, you will be entitled to attend the Session that you have booked.
3.2 Our aim is to always provide you with the Services:
3.2.1 using reasonable care and skill;
3.2.2 in compliance with commonly accepted practices and standards in our industry; and
3.2.3 in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations in force at the time we are to carry out the Services.
4. The Premises
4.1 We will provide the Services at the location relevant to the Session you have booked. This information is available via our online booking system on our website, or can be provided on request.
4.2 You should ensure that you are aware of the location of the Session that you are attending prior to completing the booking. We will not be held responsible for any errors made by you during the booking process.
5.1 What happens if we cannot perform the Services?
5.1.1 If, for any reason, we cannot provide the Services at the Session you have booked, you may choose either to attend another Session (free of charge), or alternatively you can cancel the contract (in which case we will provide you with a full refund).
5.2 What happens if you cannot attend the Session you have booked?
5.2.1 All bookings are non-refundable (other than in the circumstances described in clause 5.1.1 above).

If, however, you provide us with at least twenty-four (24) hours’ written notice (given in accordance with clause 11 below) of your inability to attend, we may (at our absolute discretion) allow you to attend an alternative Session.
5.2.2 The provisions of Part 3 of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (concerning your right to cancel) do not apply to the contract between us, on the basis that the contract falls within the exemption set out in section 28(1)(h) of those Regulations (services related to leisure activities where the contract provides for a specific date of performance).
