Venue Hire - Booking and Payment:

A deposit of 30% ($300.00 minimum) is required to secure your selected date and venue. Should you decide to cancel your booking this deposit is non-refundable except in circumstances where we have been able to re book the venue for this date at a revenue equal to or above your original booking. In this case a $50.00 administration fee will apply and the remainder will be refunded after the date originally booked.

This deposit also serves as a bond should you be liable for any damage incurred to our premises during your function. Generally this is not the case and the amount is then offset against the final invoice. Your final invoice will be forwarded to your email address and payment is due within 7 days.

Rates and conditions are subject to change prior to confirmed booking.

NB: Please note that Takapuna Beach Reserve adjacent to our club is a public reserve and outside the control of our club. If you have any queries regarding this reserve please contact the Auckland Council directly.
