Extension of Booking System to Courts 3, 4 and 5
Following the trial period on Courts 1 & 2, the Committee has decided to extend the Court Booking system trial to cover Courts 1 to 5 with effect from Monday 13th May.
Whilst the trial on Courts 1 & 2 went smoothly, evidence collected from the booking system and from surveys suggests that many members simply did not engage with the system and were happy to continue to “queue to play” on the remaining courts. In the interests of helping the Committee arrive at a definitive decision regarding the possible deployment of a booking system, extending the trial to more popular courts will provide a better test of member’s feelings for or against a booking system at the Club.
Please register to use the system as soon as possible by following the link in the right hand pane of this page and familiarise yourself with the rules <click here> for rules.

Court Allocation - Queuing etiquette
Following feedback from members the queuing rule pertaining to Doubles matches has been slightly relaxed. It now reads as follows (change in Red):
Queuing Etiquette: Two players must be present, for either a Singles or Doubles match, before a name can be added to the waiting list.
Doubles matches may take to the court once two players are present. However, please note that playing time commences once these players take possession of the court and NOT when the fourth player arrives on court.
A player who has already played must stay off court for at least one hour.
Your continued cooperation with Club rules is appreciated.
