I am afraid not 😔
Refunds are strictly offered to the people who honour the refund policy.
Refund policy has put in place to safeguard & compensate the organiser for:
Covering the pitch hire cost 💸
Most venue payments must be done in advances and venues do not provide a refund
Energy and time spending to fill up the game 🕤
People who are organising a game are spending a lot of time to get the numbers right; all participants should respect and support them for their effort
When a person doesn't provide enough notice on RSVP change, it puts the organiser under pressure to find replacement and the game at risk. Sometimes Game organiser might offer the spot for free to other players in order to make up the numbers. Somebody being added in the list does not necessarily means that they have paid for it.
🌱 Extra info In the past we tried to be more flexible with the refund policy but it only caused us problems, even game cancellations as people hold on to their spots till last minute in the promise that they might get their money back. Being strict to the refund policy is the only way we can be fair to everybody who sign up to the game and expecting to have a good standard game.
We want to minimise the risk of running uneven numbers games, therefore we want people who sign up for a game to commit on their booking.
