Booking Rules

  • Members may book a court up to 7 days in advance
  • Members must show their opponent's name on the booking sheets.  This is vital for contact tracing; your court will be cancelled if no opponent is entered before you play. If playing a guest or solo-practicing please select those from the list on the website.
  • Members are allowed 5 free guests per membership year, any further guests cost £10 each and must play during clubhouse opening hours.

Non-Members and Visitors

  • Please contact the club to book courts or discuss visitor memberships on 01326 311056

Cancellations

  • Members are encouraged to cancel a court as soon as possible so that the court may be used by other members.
  • Courts cancelled more than 24 hours in advance are acceptable.
  • Courts cancelled within 24 hours carry a penalty if not utilised (re-booked) by another member (see below).

Restrictions

  • Please see the membership rates & benefits section of our website for current restrictions based on your membership category

Penalties & Fines

  • If a member does not show up, cancels a court within 24 hrs of the booking date (and it is not re-booked by another member), or books a court for both sports at the same time, 3 times in one month without an extenuating reason. Then their booking privileges will be revoked for 2 weeks. Members will then have 2 months' probation period during which if they do not play on a booked court or if they cancel 3 times during this period with less than 24 hours' notice, then their booking privileges will be revoked for a minimum of one month and they will be fined £20. Booking privileges will only be reinstated once the one month has expired and the fine is paid (when this occurs it will take a day or two for that member to be reinstated). If you have an extenuating reason for missing your booked court please contact Committee Member, Jerry Thomas, (details in the directory).
