Booking an extended let for the current booking period: 1st August 2022-31st July 2023
If you are using more than one venue/school/pitch, we need an application form for each venue/school/pitch you wish to rebook. When you complete and submit your form/s our Bookings Team will process them.
If we need a Direct Debit mandate we will get in touch with you after we have received your application form (we only need one Direct Debit mandate, even if you are using multiple facilities). Paying by Direct Debit is very simple; once the DD mandate is set up payments will be made in arrears. Clubs will receive an invoice around the 1st of each month which will explain what facilities they are being charged for and what payment will be taken from their nominated bank account on or around the 15th of the month. This delay in the invoice being sent and the payment being taken, gives customers the opportunity to check the invoice and advise Edinburgh Leisure bookings team of any amendments (if needed). This applies to those customers who have regular extended let bookings only and not casual users or league affiliated bookings.
Changes to the Booking Process
Based on feedback from customers, we have made changes to simplify the booking process.
How will it affect me?
Similar to last year, the extended let bookings team will look after bookings in three sectors: schools, pitches and Edinburgh Leisure venues.
If you are booking a let in:
One school, one pitch or one Edinburgh Leisure venue : please fill in a full form for the relevant area.
Two or more bookings in one sector ie bookings in two (or more) schools, or two (or more) pitches, or two (or more) Edinburgh Leisure venues: Please fill in a full form for your first booking in your sector. For each subsequent booking in that sector, you can fill in a shortened version of our standard forms by marking Yes on the box marked 'completed form.'
For a mixture of sectors, ie combination of schools, pitches and Edinburgh Leisure venues: Please fill in a full form for your first booking in each sector. For each subsequent booking in that sector, you can fill in a shortened version of our standard forms by marking Yes on the box marked 'completed form.'
Please note before booking
High School bookings are subject to:
- planned Maintenance (usually scoped by the Council for completion during holiday periods)
- exam periods and School Events.
- festive Period Availability
For Edinburgh Leisure venues we require 3 months’ notice of early withdrawal from the extended let agreement. The hirer is not permitted to cancel any bookings during the extended let period.
For School and Sports Pitch lets we need 21 days’ notice of early withdrawal from the extended let agreement or for individual cancellation.
To avoid any disappointment, please be sure to add any dates not required on your booking form.
