What if I want to make a complaint?

  If you wish to make a complaint you can do this by contacting Lou de Waal either by telephone or by email. We will of course be happy to discuss your complaint over the phone, but to ensure a record is available for both parties, please ensure that it is also put in writing and sent via email to Lou@blackprincetrust.org.uk. On receipt of your complaint it will be followed up and investigated as soon as possible and rectified at the nearest opportunity. If you are a local resident and wish to complain about noise or anti-social behaviour from users out of working hours (Mon-Fri 9-5) then the first port of call is to report the incident to PowerLeague as they are on site during the evenings and on weekends and can respond immediately. If you wish to register a complaint with regards to any of the outside facilities then please email both PowerLeague (Vauxhall@powerleague.co.uk) and BPT (Lou@blackprincetrust.org.uk) quoting the date and time of the incident, pitch number along with a brief description of the incident. This will then be logged and we will investigate and action as necessary. If you have a complaint regarding any of the in-door facilities, i.e. the Basketball courts, Boxing Studio, or The Space then follow the procedure as above, but you will only need to email BPT.
