Terms and Conditions for Get Active London
PLEASE READ THERSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE
“Get Active” is an online portal which brings together sports clubs and individuals who offer sports sessions (“Session Providers”) into one central database. The aim of our service is to make it easier for people like you to find and participate in sports sessions. Our service enables our Session Providers to showcase their services so you can easily search through and book the sports sessions offered directly with the Session Providers. These terms tell you the rules on which we make available information about the Session Providers so they can provide their services to you (the “User”, “you”). Get Active is free to join for Users.
Who we are and how to contact us
Get Active is operated by London Sport (“we”, “us”, “ours”). We are a registered charity (charity number 1165100) and a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales under company number 08355406. Our registered office address is House of Sport, 190 Great Dover Street, London, SE1 4YB.
Get Active is an online portal which provides the general public with one place to easily search and sign up for sports sessions provided by independent Session Providers.
To contact us, please email [email protected] or call 0203 848 4630.
Our service is to provide a link between you and Session Providers to allow you to easily find and book sports sessions with them. Get Active advertises Session Providers’ services and allows you to book and pay for sports sessions.
Get Active is free to join for Users. You will only be responsible for payment if you book a sports session with a Session Provider.
Please note that when you book a sports session, your booking is directly with the Session Provider and not London Sport. We simply provide the platform on which information about the Session Providers can be found, and facilitate communication.

We may make changes to Get Active
We may update and change Get Active from time to time to reflect changes to Get Active’s functionality, and changes to our Users’ or Session Providers’ needs. We will take reasonable steps to notify you of any significant changes.
We may suspend or withdraw Get Active
We do not guarantee that Get Active, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend, withdraw or restrict the availability of all or any part of Get Active, for example for security, maintenance or operational reasons, or reasons related to our status as a charitable organisation.

We have made arrangements with an online payment services provider, Stripe Payments Europe Ltd (“Payment Services Provider”) to allow you to make payments directly to Sessions Providers for sports sessions booked through Get Active (if the Session Provider has elected to receive payments in this manner).
For the avoidance of doubt, we do not carry out any payment services and our role is limited to enabling the payment services to be provided to you and the Session Provider by the Payment Services Provider.
We and the Payment Services Provider deduct our fees from the payment received by the Session Provider, and so no further fees will be charged to you by either us or the Payment Services Provider.
If you have any problems or concerns regarding a payment made through Get Active to a Session Provider, please contact the Session Provider directing, and copy us in at [email protected]
Availability and cancellation
All sessions are subject to availability. Session Providers may contact you if there are any issues with a session you have requested or booked.
Should you wish to cancel a booked session you must do so directly with the Session Provider under the Session Providers’ conditions of cancellation, or in accordance with your statutory rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013. For details on your cancellation rights, please contact the Session Provider directly.
If you are dissatisfied with the service you received from a Session Provider, or have concerns that a Session Provider is unsuitable to be listed on Get Active, please contact us directly at [email protected] We may, if necessary, contact such a Session Provider to verify your information.
