  3. You cannot book more than one court a time.

  4. While you are playing on court (in a lesson, a social game or other) your name cannot be put down on the booking board by yourself or others for another court at a later time. Once you have finished your hour, you are allowed to join other players in their game.

  5. If your name is down to play and whilst waiting and another court is seen unoccupied, it is acceptable to warm up on that court until the court you booked becomes available. However, if one or more members wish to book the court you are warming up on, they will have priority.

  6. Court 6/Hitting wall. Court 6 cannot be booked for hitting wall practice. The wall is available on a first-come, first-served basis if the court is free. However, booked games of singles or doubles have priority over use of the hitting wall.

  7. Courts may be booked:
    • A) By two or four players who have arranged to play together. Write all names on the board under the court number.
    • B) By one or more persons who have not made up a four. Write your name on the board under the court number or join others who have already done so to make up a four. Pre-arranged fours do not have priority over individuals who have put their names on the board waiting to make up a four.
    • C) At least two of the doubles players must be at the Club by the allocated time otherwise the court may be taken by other players. A courtesy period of 5 minutes must be observed for latecomers.
    • D) Doubles take priority if the courts are fully booked. If two people are playing singles they cannot refuse to play a game of doubles or to share the court if two others wish to join them within 5 minutes of the start time. A singles which has been on court for 5 minutes can continue for the remainder of the hour.

  8. Courts and coaching:
    • Coaching spillover. For after school and holiday camps, coaches have a maximum of 2 courts allocated. If they spread out to 3 or 4 courts due to the courts being empty, members may approach them politely and respectfully and state that they wish to play on those courts and the coaches will vacate the courts immediately.
    • Ad-hoc courts for coaching. Mon-Thu 11-3, a third court may be used for individual/small-group member coaching on an ad-hoc basis. “Ad hoc” means if there is a free court, the member can book an hour for the lesson one hour in advance in the usual way; if the court is already booked, the lesson cannot take place.
