  • Sports pitch conditions of hire
    • The sports pitches must only be used for the purpose for which they are hired. The hirer(s) shall not sub-let to any person, firm, company or organisation. The booking is only applicable for the period of hire detailed on the booking confirmation slip.
    • The hirer(s) will be responsible for providing any medical attention or facilities, which may be required on match day.
    • The hirer(s) will not take vehicles onto council land other than car parks without the prior written consent of the authorised officer.
    • The hirer(s) shall be held responsible for and shall pay for all damage caused by the hirer(s) to the playing fields, pitches and pavilions, fair wear and tear excepted.
    • The hirer(s) shall be held responsible for all council equipment used during play.
    • The hirer(s) must return all council equipment to the pavilion after use. An equipment inventory will take place in every pavilion before the start of the season.
    • The hirer(s) shall be held responsible for ensuring the pavilion is locked and all services (showers, lights etc.) are turned off following use. Failure to comply with this procedure will incur a minimum fixed penalty of £25.
    • Persons leaving any items in the pavilions do so at their own risk.
    • The hirer is responsible for taking away all litter after the game. Failure to comply will incur a fixed penalty of £25.
    • Pitch charges for casual bookings are payable in advance.
    • A pavilion key for non-authorised key holders will be available from the Clean, Safe and Green Department, Cupid Green Depot, Redbourn Road, Hemel Hempstead, HP2 7BN on the last working day preceding the match, or by prior arrangement with the Outdoor Recreation officer. A £10 deposit will be charged for its use. This will be refunded on the return of the key. The hirer(s) may not make duplicates of the key.
    • Where the hirer(s) is a constituted body, the hirer hereby undertakes to arrange Public Liability Insurance cover for their team (minimum level £2 million). Proof of this may be requested. We have the right to terminate this agreement if insurance cover is not obtained.
    • We have waived the requirement for non-constituted hirer(s) to produce evidence of Public Liability Insurance. We have effected an extension to our own Public Liability policy to provide such cover. Under the terms of the policy an excess of £250 will apply in respect to third party property claims.
    • The hirer(s) hereby indemnifies us against any liability or claims concerning damage to property or injury to persons arising out of this hiring agreement.
    • We reserve the right to call off matches at any time without notice, but will endeavour to give reasonable notice if possible.
    • We reserve the right to determine the allocation of venue and pitch number(s) for the season and the right to refuse any application.
    • We reserve the right to vary the foregoing conditions and the hiring charges.
