Cancellation of classes A last-minute cancellation of a class (for example due to the trainer’s illness) does not oblige University Sport to make up for the class or to pay a partial refund. The course fee shall only be refunded if the class does not take place at all. There is no legal claim to the provision of advertised classes.
Cancellation of classes that are dependent on certain weather conditions (e.g. water sports, team sports) Refunds cannot be claimed for these classes if the conditions make it impossible or unsafe to provide the courses, for example, because of strong winds, severe weather or unplayable field conditions. Under these circumstances we will we try our best to find an alternative sports offer.
