Health and Wellbeing Commitment Statement
Our staff, agents and subcontractors are not medically qualified so if you have any doubts about your fitness or capability to exercise or participate in a weight loss programme we strongly recommend that you get advice from a doctor first.
For safety reasons, you are responsible for correctly using all facilities and reading any applicable signs, and agree to keep to the conditions in the Health Commitment Statement, which is available online, as part of our terms and conditions and also sent to you.
Completion of a form: we may ask you to complete a form (the Health Check Form). This will record details, as stated by yourself, as to your current state of health, any medical conditions you have and any medication you are taking.
Evaluation of various health indicators: we suggest that you have a medical doctor evaluate certain indicators of your health, for example including your blood pressure, heart rate, basic metabolic rate and body mass index.
We have carefully considered what we can reasonably expect of each other in this Commitment Statement.
- Your Overall Health and Fitness
Our aim is to help you to feel better and improve your physical health, and we try to make this as enjoyable as possible through participation in our football leagues. We know that everyone has different aims, levels of skill, tolerance and fitness.
- Your health is always your responsibility. It is therefore your responsibility to ensure that there are no medical reasons why you should not embark upon a recreational sports exercise and weight loss programme. If in any doubt at all, you should take medical advice from your doctor or health practitioner.
- Anyone who has any medical problems must obtain their doctor’s permission to embark upon a weight loss programme with MAN v FAT Football. Anyone who has diabetes should inform us and always follow the advice given by their diabetes care team.
- If you have or if you are concerned that you may have an eating disorder it is important to consult your doctor for advice.
- If you have had weight loss surgery then you must have approval from your doctor or health practitioner that it is appropriate for you to join MAN v FAT Football.

If at any time while exercising a member feels any ill effects then they must stop doing the exercise and we advise they check this out with their doctor.

- Before you participate and or use our equipment and facilities you should get advice from a relevant medical professional and follow that advice.

If you have concerns about your physical condition, you must not do strenuous physical activities without first getting medical advice.
- If you have any sort of disability, you should follow any reasonable recommendations to maintain personal safety.

- To make sure you get the most from every activity that you do in the safest possible way, you should always make sure that you warm up properly and take time to cool down after your activity.
- You should not take part in any physical activity that you may not be fit for. You are responsible for monitoring your own condition during physical activity.

Terms and conditions for MAN v FAT Football & MAN v FAT Challenge
- Performance of the Services
- We will provide you with the Services only as long as you promise to abide by these terms and conditions. Your agreement to take part in MAN v FAT Football also requires your commitment to the Health and Wellbeing Commitment Statement.
- If there is any cause for concern with us providing the Services we reserve the right to:
- ask you to confirm in writing that the information you provide remains accurate and that nothing of significance has changed in your medical condition or lifestyle which will affect any Services we will provide; or
- ask you provide a letter from a medical doctor indicating you can undertake fitness and sports exercise and or make significant dietary changes; or
- not provide any Services until you have gone through a health check.
- We provide our Services on the basis of a series of Sessions. This is because the best results or benefits are usually only possible if you commit to a series of Sessions.
- It is not possible that any particular result or outcome can be guaranteed as a result of us providing our Services but our aim is to provide you the Services:
- by using reasonable care and skill; and
- that comply with commonly accepted industry practices and standards.
- If any form of training or exercise we can offer is not suitable for you or that the form and type of training and exercise you require is not medically safe for you to undertake. In such cases we may require that you should consult with a medical doctor (such as your GP). In such cases, before we can perform any Services we may require a report or letter from a medical doctor to indicate that you can undertake exercise and training.
- To protect the safety of all members and guests, you must pay particular attention to all signs relating to health and safety in facilities where Sessions take place. If you do not understand a notice or sign please ask us or a member of staff at the facility.
- You must ensure that you make yourself fully aware of fire exits at facilities. If there is a fire or if you hear the fire alarm, you should make your way out of the club through the nearest possible exit to the advertised assembly point.
- If you suffer an accident or injury at a facility you must report it to and the circumstances under which it happened to us as well as to an appropriate member of staff at the facilities immediately.
- For legal and health reasons, you must not smoke while using any facilities for Sessions.
- For your safety, you must wear appropriate clothing, including footwear for the playing surface and facilities.
- Car parking
- We do not guarantee that car parking is available at any facilities.

You bring all personal belongings to any facility at your own risk. We do not accept legal responsibility for any loss or damage to these items.
- Sessions and Services
- Our Services are partly provided during sessions, normally given in up to 2-hour time slots (Session(s)). The actual period of the performance of Services during a session will often vary and usually comprises the following activities:
- Arrival, changing and set up not less than 30 minutes’ before your scheduled game kick-off;
- Weight recording, activity and diet monitoring;
- Football game of usually up to 30 minutes’ duration
- A few minutes at the beginning and each session is required to set up, record your weight, ask you any questions about your condition, any issues or problems etc and allowing you time to change etc.
- MAN v FAT Football also provide online community and support services via its website and by way of individual messaging and or social media groups.
- Stopping a Session
At any time during a Session if in our opinion we consider that:
- you appear to be unwell or becoming unwell; and/or
- not following my reasonable instructions (such as not following instructions intended to protect your, our or another person’s safety); and/or
- you are behaving or acting unreasonably or are offensive,
then we may wish to stop your participation in a Session and future Sessions and not continue it.
- Costs of Sessions and payment
Our fees for a block of MAN v FAT Football Sessions and their related Services are set out on our website at www.manvfatfootball.org.
Our fees for a block of MAN v FAT Challenge Sessions and their related services are set out at manvfat.com
- Increase in Session costs
If you book a block of Sessions then our fee will remain the same for that block of Sessions. We reserve the right to increase our Session costs but promise that we would always notify you in writing in advance if this was the case.
- By proceeding with this registration you accept the responsibility to cancel any direct debits, where applicable, if you choose to leave the scheme. MAN v FAT Football will only cancel or amend a player’s direct debit if they state in writing to [email protected] that they require us to. As of May 2019, new payment subscriptions will be charged to your card and new direct debits will not be created.
- Players paying a deposit to join a free or reduced cost league will only be eligible for the return of this deposit after the completion of the free season. This is to ensure that players who sign up are committed and are not taking the place of a player who would make the full commitment. We count a completed season as someone who has attended 10 out of the 14 sessions.
- Team sponsorship and merchandise are revenue streams for MAN v FAT Football and as such teams may not wear sponsored kit without:
- informing the Coach and the central team via [email protected] that they intend to do so and submitting the name of the team and the logo of the proposed sponsor and,
- purchasing official kit through the MAN v FAT Shop https://shop.manvfat.com to MAN v FAT in consideration of exposure and press coverage given to the sponsor via the league.
We have to enforce this rule seriously not only to protect income for the leagues but also because we do not want inappropriate sponsors associated with the league, which could threaten the integrity of the project. Teams who wear unofficial kits with sponsor logos will be asked to play in separate kits or forfeit their games.
- Referral scheme – please note that players you have referred into the league are only eligible for their 50% discount once they have played 10 games in the league. They must also not have been removed from the league or currently be in arrears with any payments. The 50% off is only available up to a maximum of £5, regardless of whether a player paid £17.99 or £9.99. We reserve the right to refuse payment if a player has not followed the terms of the referral scheme. The referrers payment of £5 credit will be applied after 7 days of the player signing up. We reserve the right to make changes to the referral scheme at any time.
- The registration fee is non-refundable unless the league is cancelled by MAN v FAT Ltd. League fees will only be taken out in the month when the league commences.
- If your payment via subscription fails you will receive an invoice payable immediately that will include an admin fee to cover the additional work required to update your payment history.
- If you cancel your Direct Debit mandate or ask us to delete your payment method, but later decide to return to MAN v FAT Football or MAN v FAT Challenge, you will be required to pay the standard registration fee.
- By default, your monthly payment subscription will commence from the date on which you are assigned a team. Any subscription set up via Direct Debit would have commenced 6 days from the date on which you are assigned to a team, which is the soonest possible via Direct Debit. If your first session were to fall on a date prior to that first collection date, you would have additionally been billed for the cost of that individual session.
- If you wish to change the regular date on which your payments are made each month, you can arrange in advance to make a pro rata payment for the days between your default due date and your preferred collection date.
- If you are late for a Session or you cancel
- If you are late
- If you are late arriving to a Session and arrive later than the time set out at clause 3.1.1 herein and if, in our reasonable opinion, we consider that providing our Services will serve no practical value or will be unsafe for you in the time available remaining of the Session then we may exclude you from the Session. You will still be expected to pay for the Session however.
- If you cancel
If you cancel a Session when you have booked a block of Sessions, as this is a group activity we cannot re-arrange the Session for another time and no refund will be offered.
Refunds – How to claim and when you are due a full or partial refund
The support and customer offer at MAN v FAT Football is twofold – ongoing support for men off the pitch through the Player Support Team, MAN v FAT TALKS and other online resources. The on-pitch offer consists of league nights, including weekly football and support through your Coaches and Facilitators*.
Much of MAN v FAT Football’s off-pitch offer remains available all your round including access to resources and recipes on our website and exclusively via the Community Group on Facebook. Members can also continue to access members-only platforms such as SilverCloud and The Other Room Gym. MAN v FAT’s on-pitch offer is available to members for up to 50* weeks per year.
MAN v FAT Football sessions are not available for a two week period over the festive season. MAN v FAT will always communicate these dates with our members in advance a minimum of two weeks before the Christmas shut down. The MAN v FAT monthly membership fee is 1/12 of the annual membership. Refunds are not issued for postponed sessions throughout this two-week closure.
*Some clubs may experience further postponements throughout the year due to Bank Holidays. Refunds for these sessions are outlined below.
If a MAN v FAT Football session is cancelled due to Bank Holidays, poor weather or a facility shutdown you will receive prior notice via email and through the leagues affiliated groups. We aim to issue as much notice as possible (at least 24hrs). For this session you will be due a 50% refund. This refund is for 50% of the affected week’s membership, for example, a player paying £31 per month would receive a refund of £3.72 for a cancelled session.
If a MAN v FAT Football session is cancelled without 24hrs notice for any reason then you will receive a full weeks refund. For example, a player paying £31 per month would receive a refund of £7.44.
If it is agreed that MAN v FAT Football have failed to deliver the experience advertised and a player decides to leave the programme after attending only one session; MAN v FAT can issue a partial refund for the remainder of the months membership. For example a player paying £31 per month would receive a refund of £7.44 for each of the remaining sessions in that payment period. Incidents where the programme is deemed not to be delivered to an acceptable standard will be investigated.
If a player registers for MAN v FAT Football and does not attend a session, it may be agreed that the member is entitled to a full refund for the months membership. The player would be required to contact the Player Support Team to explain why after being added to a team they failed to attend the first session.
All agreed refunds will be issued to you within seven working days.

- Limitation on our liability to you

Our liability for death or personal injury is also subject to certain limitations which are set in clause 9.
- Limitation and exclusion of liability for personal injury and death
We will compensate you for any loss or damage you may suffer if we fail to carry out duties imposed on us by law (including if we cause your death or personal injury to you by our negligence) unless that failure is attributable to:

- a third party unconnected with the provision of Services under this contract; or
- events which we could not have foreseen or forestalled even if we had taken all reasonable care.
- Contacting each other
If you wish to send us any notice or letter then you should send it to [email protected] If we wish to send you a letter or notice we will use the address you have given to us.
