If pitch hire is no longer required, the organiser must give Sandon Soccer Limited at least 24 hours’ notice. If notice of cancellation is given within 24 hours of the hirer period, this also includes no shows, the costs will need to be paid in full. All outstanding cancellation fees must be cleared before the next hirer period. If there are 2 cancellations within a 4-week period, the place may be offered to another hirer on the waiting list.

Sandon Soccer Limited reserves the right to end early or cancel this agreement if the hire fee is overdue by 7 days and/or there is a breach of the terms and conditions.
