The main rule is that school gyms are rented trough the Sports Services Centre.
If a school gym is not part of the Sports Services Centre booking system, apply for a shift through the school’s principal. In that case the costs are determined by the list on the rent application form for school facilities.
If the school gym is part of the Sports Services Centre booking system but the renting is for other purposes than a sports or physical exercise event, the booking should be conducted by contacting the school’s principal directly.
If the renter also books other school facilities and the booked period continues after 22.00, the booking should similarly be conducted by contacting the school.
The responsibilities of the renter are:
- to tidy up the facilities before and after the event
- to clean the facilities according to the instructions given by the school
