Terms and conditions

Paddlesport is an Assumed Risk / Water Contact Activity

What does that mean?

Participation in a recreational sporting activity always involves some degree of risk that you assume under the law. These are "inherent" risks. Co-participants in the sporting activity, including participants, coaches and facility owners or operators, owe you no duty to protect you from the "inherent" risks in the sport, even if they were negligent.

To participate in our water-based activities, you must meet the following prerequisites:

  1. Be able to swim more than 10 metres unaided
  2. Have given us a fully completed and signed Waiver of Liability form
  3. Not be under the influence of alcohol, or any banned substances

In addition you must agree to the following conditions:

  1. Wear your buoyancy aid at all times once through the gates
  2. Listen to the directions of your coach or leader at all times
  3. Stay with your group
  4. Wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions and closed toe footwear

Bookings and Payment

Please note that all group bookings, trips and courses must be paid for in advance. Once we have confirmed your booking with you for your chosen activity you must attend on the agreed date unless you give us at least 72 hours notice to cancel your booking. If you give us sufficient notice, your payment will be refunded, less a ?5 cancellation fee.

If you cancel your booking within 72 hours of your agreed session, you will still be liable for paying the full charges of your chosen activity.
