We now have a computer booking system, which is up and running. As a Club member you will be given a username and password to login. You can book courts, check out tournaments and your grading either on the computer in the club foyer or on any device with internet access Click here to be re-directed to the IT Site. Please keep to booked times and if you are unable to turn up then please go online and cancel your booking. Our Club policy is that if you are 10 minutes late you forfeit the court. Please restrict your bookings to a maximum of 2 in advance.
On court time is as per stipulated on the online booking screen. Court bookings are of 45 minute duration. When your time is completed your court lights will automatically shut off at the end of the 45 minutes from when you swiped your cards. If no-one is booked or waiting for the court, you may swipe again and finish your game. Please be courteous to other members in this regard.
Your card entitles you to use the club facilities. It gets you through the front door and it enables you (with your opponent) to switch on the court lights. Your card is important – look after it.
