Terms & Conditions


In these terms and conditions:

“The Company” means GB Sport & Leisure UK Ltd and its subsidiary or related companies –

“The Customer” means the person or organisation purchasing the goods or service.



Quotations are produced based upon costs provided by suppliers.  As some suppliers are based overseas, fluctuations in currency and transportation costs can result in changes to costings originally calculated and therefore The Company reserves the right to withdraw or amend quotations if necessary.  The Customer will be re-quoted and given the opportunity to accept or decline the new quotation prior to proceeding with the order.



Standard payment terms for customers with agreed credit accounts are 30 Days from date of invoice for all Customers.

Orders from customers who do not have an agreed credit account will only be accepted against prepayment in full.

a) Any extension of time to pay shall not be effective unless agreed in writing by the Company, before the supply of any goods or services. Amounts may not be withheld or delayed by the customer for returns or otherwise, without the written agreement of the Company.  

b) The Company reserves the right to charge interest on a daily basis from the date payment is due until the date payment is received. The basis of the interest will be 8% above Santander Bank’s base rate from time to time in force.

c) All costs incurred in recovering overdue debts including without limitation legal expenses will be payable by the customer.

d) The Company may terminate this agreement and/or withhold further supplies in the event of amounts payable being overdue, breach of any of these Terms and Conditions of Supply or any other reason which at the discretion of the Company warrants such action.

e) Where payment for goods or services is made by credit card, the Company reserves the right to charge a 3.0% card fee.  No fee will be charged if payment is made on an individual’s personal debit card.  Business debit cards will be liable to the 3% card fee.

c) For the avoidance of doubt, arms length terms will allow the customer to supply on the goods to a third party, but if the passing of property under clause 3a above has not been fulfilled at the point of supply, the customer must make their client aware that title of the goods or service remains with the Company until full payment is received by the Company.

d) The Company shall be entitled at any time before the passing of property in the Goods under clause 3a) above, to terminate the license granted to the Customer under clause 3b) (ii) above and to enter upon the Customers premises (or any other premises where the goods are kept) for the purpose of removing them.

8. Safety surfacing – supply and installation

Polyurethane binders darken in colour in hot, sunny conditions.  This can cause discolouration of the surface.  This is normally temporary and the discolouration of binder wears off the surface with use. Temporary discolouration is not a defect. 

All colours are subject to ultra violet light degradation and as such total colour stability cannot be guaranteed, especially with bright red, bright yellow and orange. Polyurethane bound surfaces will emit an odour when first laid.  The odour will diminish with use and is not a defect.


8. Cont’d

Rubberised surfaces such as wet pour and rubber mulch, together with resin bound path products can sometimes be slippery on initial use. Care should be taken if damp ground conditions prevail when the surfaces are first used.

Rubber mulch surfacing is comprised of a relatively open matrix of shredded rubber. Air-born seeds can germinate in this matrix, resulting in vegetative growth in the surface. This is not an installation defect.  Should this occur treat the affected areas with a weed killer available from any garden centre. Rubber mulch and rubber track surfaces will darken in shade over time.

Repairs to wet pour and mulch-style surfaces: it is impossible to guarantee repairs to these types of surfaces, as we are repairing surfaces laid by other contractors, as it is impossible to ascertain the strength of the original surfaces and whether or not they will continue to move in the future, which could affect the integrity of our repairs. The finished surface level of repairs may vary by up to 5mm from the surrounding surface.



a) This agreement shall terminate forthwith if an order is made for bankruptcy of or an effective resolution is passed for the winding-up of the customer or if the customer being a company is unable to pay its debts within the meaning of Section 123 of the insolvency Act 1986 or any statutory re-enactment or modification thereof, or makes a composition with creditors or if a supervisor, receiver, administrator, administrative receiver or other encumbrancer takes possession of or is appointed over the whole or any part of the assets of the customer.

b) The Company reserves the right to terminate this Agreement with the customer at any time if trading terms and conditions are violated by the customer.

c) Termination of this Agreement shall not affect any rights or obligations of the parties hereto arising prior to such termination.


10. LAW
