If a participant is absent from a session for a reason other than TwistFizz cancelling the session due to adverse weather, he/she is choosing to forfeit the time.

Wet Weather Policy

British weather can be unpredictable, it’s our aim to continue sessions in any weather.

Sessions generally go ahead in light rain and we recommend that participants pack a wet weather jacket

Activity will be cancelled if the courts are adversely affected or weather is likely to contribute to a negative experience for players.

Any decision to postpone or cancel a session due to poor weather conditions will be made 30 minutes before the start and will be communicated by either email or text. If no official cancellation has been communicated by the coach /TwistFizz Team the session is deemed to have run

If you haven’t received communication and you’re in doubt please contact the Lead Coach directly.

A session that runs for over half of the designated time and is then interrupted by poor weather conditions is considered a full session. No credit will be offered

A session interrupted by bad weather conditions before halfway through is considered incomplete and the player can request a credit note
