Online Court Reservations

Print

We have now moved to an online booking system and the paper sheets in the clubhouse will be removed from 01/02/2015.

There is no significant change to the rules on what courts can be booked and when. The system has our rules programmed in to it and will have all regular bookings by the committee, coaching programme, sanctioned tournaments and team fixtures clearly displayed.

To book your courts:

  1. Log in by using your British Tennis Membership (BTM) details (Please select the blue LTA tab)
  2. You need to make sure your BTM account is linked to Nuneaton Lawn Tennis Club
  3. Or you can register and set up a new ClubSpark account
  4. Members will receive an email confirmation of a booking which can be printed and retained as proof should they be challenged about a reservation.

Anyone without internet access can still reserve courts by phone or text to the club number on 07887 583511

 

Court Reservation Rules:

1. All courts should be reserved online in advance for member’s personal use. If any courts are not booked, members can use these courts on the basis that they follow rule 6 below. To see which courts are booked please visit the online booking system

2. The reservation rules do not apply to committee sanctioned events such as coaching, tournaments, social sessions, special events, league matches and any other committee sanctioned use. Reservations for these occasions will be highlighted on the booking system in advance. During tournaments courts may be available in line with rule 6, however this is at the discretion of the Tournament Organiser or Referee.

3. Any member with access to the site (Junior or Senior) may make an online court reservation. This can be up to two hours on any one court up to 6 days in advance but not within 60 minutes of the booked start time, from that point rule 6 applies. If you require a court for a specific event you should bring it to the attention of the committee.

4. If any booked court is not claimed within 10 minutes of the start time, the reservation is void and any members may use the court on the basis of rule 6.

5. If the player reserving the court turns up within their 10 minute allowance, their play must still finish at end of the booking (booking does not start from time of arrival).

6. If or when the courts are full and members are waiting, the unreserved players that have been playing the longest should vacate their court after a maximum of 1.5 hours after their original booking start time. Players cannot return to play until a court becomes free or 1.5 hours after they stopped playing if courts remain full. This rule also applies to any visitors who have paid visitors fee. Members and Visitors could stay on the courts and play for longer if they mix in with those waiting.

7. Any members who regularly reserve courts but do not turn up will be reported to the committee and sanctions may be applied to said member(s)

8. If you want to play on a specific court, you need to have reserved it in advance to make sure you get it. You cannot move other members or coaches onto other courts, when you have not booked.

9. Courts will not be available to be booked at the following times:

  1. Club Night: Monday night from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm (April to October only)
  2. Senior Social Morning: Tuesday from 10:00 am – 12:00 noon.
