MEMBERS & VISITORS
There must be one member playing per court who can be accompanied by up to a maximum of 3 visitors. The member is responsible for paying the visitor fees and making the appropriate entry in the Visitors Book before using the court. The book, visitor slip and payment box are all found in the entrance lobby.
The number of occasions a visitor may play is limited to 8 times in a year.

Visitor Fee: Adult £5 and Junior £3 per occasion.

HOW TO PAY Please see new court payment information & remember to pay before you play!

CANCELLATIONS

If you are unable to play we would appreciate that every effort is made to cancel the court as soon as possible in order to allow other members to potentially use. The booking system has set rules for dealing with cancellations and refunds. Most members accept these rules without question- and we appreciate that very much, as it saves us time The system of refunds is the same as last year – with the addition, that if you cancel late and that court is re-sold, you get refunded then, too.

If you cancel more than 24 hours before it’s due to start, the booking fee is refunded in full.

If you cancel later than this – for example – a court booked for Wednesday at 8-30pm needs to be cancelled by 8-30pm on Tuesday evening, if not required – the system WILL refund you BUT ONLY IF THE COURT IS REBOOKED. The same applies to everyone: no refunds for late cancellation (genuine medical emergencies excepted).

HONESTY

Complete honesty is required by every member – no cheating please! The court fee must be paid in advance. If you decide to stay on the court for longer than your booked slot, and the court is not required by others, please break from play and book and pay via your phone for the additional time – add on minimum charge is for half an hour, e.g. even if you stay on for 10 minutes, you have to pay an additional fee for 30 minutes.

In order to be fair to all members anyone abusing the above procedure will be invoiced by the Club for the amount unpaid, plus an additional £15 surcharge. If it happens on a second occasion, the member will again be invoiced but also notified that they are not allowed to use the air hall again for a year. CCTV in the air hall is monitoring play.

COURT USE AND LOCK UP

The air hall should be locked when not in use. The first ‘booked’ player is to take the air hall key off the hook in the clubhouse lobby beside the black money box, unlock the revolving doors to courts 9 and 10, and place the key  on top of the ‘protective grill’ beside the revolving door. At the end of play, if no ‘booked’ player or coach arrives, or if it is the final night slot, please switch off the lights, lock the revolving door (by lining up the door lock with the bolt above the door) return the key to the clubhouse lobby hook and check that the clubhouse door has shut correctly. Also if it is the final night session, check that the main entrance gate has shut tight behind you on way out.

LIGHTS!!!!!!!

As we are all aware – electricity prices are on the increase. Leaving the lights on when no one is playing costs the club money. PLEASE check the bookings after you and, as mentioned above, if no one appears to be following you or if your session is the final one of the day – switch the lights off.

NB once lights are switched off they take 15 minutes approximately to light up again.

CLUB COACHES

All Coaches and Squads Coaching Administrator, under the responsibility of the Head Coach, keep weekly records of coaching fees received and pay monies directly to the Admin Officer on a weekly or daily basis.  ‘Block booked’ squads and fees are paid into the main account but at the end of each block.

When there is good reason, the Coach has the authority to waive a court booking cancellation fee, for the very few pupils having weekly multi lessons.

Saturday morning Community Open Squads are charged at off peak rate. Any visitors pay a visitor’s fee to the club.

The LTA gave the Club significant funding for the cost of the air hall to provide indoor court facilities for a substantial junior coaching programme, in particular after school hours.

Thank you for your co-operation and enjoy your indoor tennis
