4 OUR LEARNING VISITS
4.1 We offer a number of different learning visits, the full range of which is described on our website or in our brochure. Please specify which programme you require at the time of booking.
4.2 We wish to know who attends our learning visits (for example, for statistical and research purposes) and where minors are attending our premises (for health and safety reasons). You must provide to us your name and the number of people in your group at the time of booking, and the names of those attending (if requested).
4.3 Unless you have our permission in writing, you are not permitted to advertise any of our learning visits for sale.
4.4 We will endeavour to provide learning visits that are as advertised to you, but you are advised that images of our learning visits are for illustrative purposes only and we reserve the right to make changes to your learning visit.
4.5 Make sure you tell us accurately how many in your group will be attending. We cannot guarantee spaces on the same programme if you are required to book additional spaces at a later stage.
4.6 If you require any special arrangements (such as disabled access, language requirements or guide dogs) or modifications to be made to your programme, please let us know at the time of booking and we will try to accommodate them.
5 ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS
As part of your learning visit you may wish to use our on-site café or function rooms. Both of these are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed unless they are booked in advance. Please contact us for further details. We reserve the right to alter the structure and timings of your programme should you wish to exercise this option.
6.1 If you wish to make changes to your booking or the products you have ordered, please contact us as set out in clause 1 and we will let you know if the change is possible.
6.2 You may alter your booking at any time up to 10 working days prior to the date of your visit. If you need to notify us after this time that the number in your group is to:
a) decrease, then any reduction in price or refund will be offered at our sole discretion (typically, only in circumstances outside of your reasonable control) and we reserve the right to charge for the full amount of your visit; or
b) increase, then we make no guarantee that we can accommodate your requirements and any ability to do so will be subject to our capacity limits at such short notice. If we are able to accommodate you then we will issue an invoice to you for the additional amounts, but we cannot guarantee spaces on the same programme if you are required to request additional places at a later stage.
6.3 We reserve the right to make changes to our learning visits to:
a) reflect changes in relevant laws or regulatory requirements; or
b) implement minor adjustments and improvements due to ongoing construction, improvement or maintenance work or poor weather conditions.
6.4 We additionally reserve the right to amend these terms at any time. You are advised to check these terms each time you purchase any of our learning visits or education programmes, as any changes will be binding on you. Where any changes have a material impact on your visit, we will use all reasonable endeavours to notify you as soon as reasonably practicable after the change is enforced, in writing.
7.1 The estimated price of your learning visit and any additional products (VAT inclusive where applicable) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order or as explained to you over the phone. Any changes to your booking, as detailed in clause 6 above may cause a change to this price and this will be quoted to you at the time of making the change.
7.2 Your learning visit can be secured on payment to us of a non-refundable deposit of £84.00, at which point we will hold your booking for you. This must be paid as soon as possible upon booking to secure your reservation. Payment of the balance must be made (or reach us in cleared funds) within 30 days of the date on your invoice, which will be sent to you on completion of your tour.
7.3 We accept payments either in cash, debit or credit card in £GBP, by cheque or BACS transfer. We reserve the right to charge a nominal transaction fee for payment by credit cards which will be notified to you prior to payment. This may be in addition to any charges or fees that your bank or credit card supplier may charge. Payments by cheque should be made payable to the All England Lawn Tennis Club (Championships) Limited.
7.4 If you wish to pay by BACS transfer on receipt of an invoice from us, please quote the reference number on the invoice at the time of payment. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know and we will try to resolve the issue. Your reservation will not be affected during the time that any invoice is queried until such time as it reasonably appears that the query will not be resolved (in which case we will notify you).
With our learning visits, we do not issue tickets to you. When your booking is complete we will provide you with confirmation in writing and this must be presented to us on the day of your visit.
9 CANCELLATION AND REFUNDS
9.1 You can always end your contract with us and we understand that sometimes plans change. We will offer you a full refund (less any deposit paid in advance) if you wish to cancel provided you tell us not less than 10 working days prior to the date of your visit. Any cancellation after this time will only be refunded (whether in whole or in part) at our sole discretion.
9.2 We reserve the right to suspend or cancel any part of your learning visit, or alter the agenda where we consider it necessary to do so.

9.3 Any deposit paid (whether or not subsequent payment of the balance of the price is made in full) is non-refundable unless:

We will co-operate with you should you need us to answer any questions you may have in relation to this.
11.5 It is your responsibility to arrive at the appropriate time and location for your visit, with the appropriate documentation (such as any confirmation email, unique booking reference number and valid photo identification).
11.6 Please arrive in advance of your learning visit start time. If you are running late please telephone us to let us know but we cannot guarantee to accommodate your original requirements in the event of late arrival.
12 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
12.1 If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen (for example, if you discussed it with us at the time of booking).
12.2 We will not be liable for any:
a) loss of, or damage to, any personal property which may occur during your learning visit or on our premises (unless such damage is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill); or
b) indirect, special or consequential losses or damages incurred by you that may arise out of or in connection with your booking of, or your attendance on, our learning visits.
12.3 Subject to clause 12.4, our total aggregate liability to you for any losses, costs, damages or liabilities incurred by you as a result of our actions will be limited to double the price actually paid by you for the relevant learning visit.
12.4 Nothing in these terms will limit or exclude our liability for:
a) death or personal injury caused by negligence; or
b) fraudulent misrepresentation.
13 YOUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE
Supervisors are at all times responsible for those attending as part of their group. Therefore, you (as the guardian of all those attending our learning visits) will be responsible for all costs, losses and liabilities incurred by us as a result of any damage to our property caused by you, your actions or the actions or omissions of those under your supervision or control whilst on our premises.
14 OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

14.3 We shall have no liability to you if we are prevented from, or delayed in, performing our obligations under these terms by events that are beyond our reasonable control.
14.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal or unenforceable, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
14.5 If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
14.6 Our contract and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales and each of you and us irrevocably agrees that the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with our contract or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
