Booking Tennis courts
You will be issued with a membership card that you can either keep with you or you can leave at the club in the box on the corner of the bar. Membership cards are used to reserve free courts for walk-on play.
Courts are usually available for play at the following times:
• Grass courts – from 11:00am depending on weather conditions
• Artificial grass – from 8:00am until 10:00pm
• Hard courts – from 7:30am until 10:00pm
All members may use the courts. They are reserved by placing membership cards on the booking board in the clubhouse, putting your card in the slot for the court you are using, along with the time of going on court. This applies except during club period, if the court is clearly allocated for coaching or if there is a team match taking place.
All members should display their cards before play, as this serves both as a club security precaution and a way of ensuring fair use of the courts. If cards are not displayed then other members are entitled to claim the court. When there is pressure on courts, players are allowed 30 minutes for singles play and 45 minutes doubles. If you are playling a tennis ladder match you can display additionally a 'ladder' card (stored at front of member's cards) to allow an extra 15 minutes of singles play.
