Terms & Conditions

We agree, reading legal jargon isn’t fun. Here is a summary of the main points of the agreement which follows below. It’s true, LiteClub is a completely free service for sports clubs made possible by funding from various trusts, councils and philanthropists. Here is how we will work with you once your club appoints a club representative to liaise with the LiteClub team on all aspects of the programme …

1. The LiteClub team will visit your club to accomplish the following:

(A) We will access all areas of the club to assess the environmental efficiency of the club’s facilities.

(B) We will install a number of free primary impact reducing products intended to improve the club’s environmental efficiency and/or reduce the club’s running costs. These may include energy efficient lightbulbs, water-saving devices in taps, toilets and showers, fridge power timers, hot water pipe lagging and cylinder wraps, as well as sorting-at-source recycling stations.

(C) We will produce an environmental impact report (Efficiency Action Plan - EAP) for the club that will both record the products installed as well as identify additional viable environmental impact reduction initiatives (e.g. solar heating, double glazing, insulation etc.) that the club may wish to implement and fund itself.

2. Subsequent to the club visit:

(A) If the club wishes to implement additional reductions initiatives outlined in the Efficiency Action Plan, LiteClub will endeavour to assist in facilitating this at no cost.

(B) LiteClub and the club may work together using club member contact details and/or club newsletters and emails to educate and encourage club members to reduce their own environmental impact at home, should the club wish to do so.

(C) From time to time, we will send informational material via email about us or our partners and suppliers and their services that may be of interest for you. You will always be able to unsubscribe from these.

So, do the environment a favour, register your club now and save some cash in the process!
