But they didn't -- I attended an event the next year and he was there!
I booked into another event and asked if he was attending and asked if I could be removed if they couldn't enforce the ban and he was there.
I tried asking the same question couple more times and eventually I was told I was being rude and that I was banned and that the police would be called.
I was absolutely shocked at the reply as it was totally unnecessary.
How this company can promote they are proud of their customer service on Facebook is beyond me.
For those still keen to attend the T&Cs are on Speed Date Australia site not their individual locations.
Their flakey response was "you've been to too many events" and removed me.
No apologies about lying about banning that male or pretending to care for safety or removing me abruptly.
I got a rude email saying "no refund, keeping $$$" I have been to their speed dating event before and they banned a guy for being 2 weeks over the age range. I have spoken to other people at other speed dating events run by other company and there are have been heaps of people being banned for slight demeanours like complaining about the host, complaining about another fellow speed dater. I'm trying to chase up a refund so will update once I have more details. One thing I noticed is that the "tickets left" count seems to be manually updated.
these people all got rude emails from this company, I am assuming it is the same very rude administrator. After not hearing back when I asked for a date reschedule I asked for a refund. I've bought a ticket saying (for example) 7 tickets available and then after purchasing it still says 7 tickets available.
I convinced a friend to attend with me as I've never been to a speed dating event. They then responded to say they could offer a voucher valid for 12 months then no response when I confirmed that would be acceptable. So I'm not surprised reading news about how people have bought tickets and then being told the event is sold out.
