Members can book courts 8 days prior from 7 am. In other words, a new "booking sheet" is automatically added to the system at 8 days prior at 7 am.
Maximum 4 "live" Peak bookings per member. In other words, a member with 4 forward Peak bookings can only book another court after the next Peak booking but not before.
Members should select their opponent's name to show on the booking sheets.
We would encourage you to book courts at all times to enable the section to monitor court usage and to enable us to only heat courts when they are likely to be used.
To minimise court heating costs for the club we would prefer you to always book court 5 first.

(check-in not required at off-peak times).
The member who booked the court is required to check-in to confirm court usage within 60 minutes prior to start time (or up to 2 hours after playing).
Nominated playing partners/opponents may also check-in on behalf of the member who booked the court.

On the first 2 occasions, there is no charge for the "no-show".
On subsequent occasions, the system will automatically charge a £1.60 no-show penalty to the member's booking system account.
On each occasion, the system sends an email notification at 10am on the day following the no-show with instructions on how to check-in the next time.
Members with outstanding late-cancellation or no-show charges must purchase a £5 top-up vouchers from the bar, and apply the voucher to their booking system accounts by using either the "kiosk" system or when logged-in to the website.
Please note you will need to know your system PIN to use the "kiosk" system at the club. You can look-up your PIN when logged into the website, or use the Forgotten Password process.
