Booking conditions

If you haven’t set up an account with us, you must pay the fee before using the Bernie Wood Turf.

The field will only be closed and fees refunded if lights aren’t available for early morning or night use because of power failure.

If you cancel a booking with more than seven days’ notice, we’ll give you a full refund.  There’s no refund for cancellations with less than seven days’ notice.
