Making a booking

  • Bookings can be placed on any sheets on the left of this screen, which are coloured black, rather than grey
  • Only two live bookings for peak time slots can be held by one person within 21 days – the system will stop more being placed. There is no limit put on slots outside these times, although a member cannot book two courts for the same time slot
  • Members may only make bookings consistent with their membership category type – eg an off peak member cannot book a slot for a Saturday, or a junior can only book courts 3, 6 and 7
  • After clicking ‘yes’, choose your opponents and partners.

Handy hints

  • Peak times are any time at the week-end and after18:30 during the week.
  • You will be emailed immediately by the system to confirm the booking, consider forwarding this on to the other players involved
  • If you use an email client on your computer like Outlook or Outlook Express, clicking on email addresses in ‘My Booking’s’ creates a new email to the addressee and the court booking details in the subject field. Avoid using it if you use web-mail such as Hotmail or Google Mail.

Cancelling a booking

  • A booking may only be cancelled by the person who made the booking – the system enforces this
  • A booking may be cancelled at any time before the start of the booking time
  • Cancellations made less than 48 hours before the starting time will be registered as a late cancellations on the system
  • A person who persistently cancels late could have their right to make bookings removed.

Checking in

  • The person booking the court must ‘check in’ at the clubhouse touchscreen using their pin number:
    • not more than 105 minutes before the start time of the booking, and
    • not more than 15 minutes after the start time
  • Failure to do so will register as a ‘no show’ against the person who made the booking
  • A person who persistently ‘no shows’ could have their right to make bookings removed.

Handy hints

  • As the pin number is system generated and not your choice. Keep a record of your pin number with your tennis kit, as forgetting it will stop you checking in
  • In the event of bad weather please cancel the court from home before the booking starts
  • The 105 minute rule enables you to check-in once, before you start, for two consecutive slots, which saves you rushing back to the club-house half way through the match.

Completing ‘my settings’ and ‘my profile’ and ‘cancelled court alerts’

These facilities enable you:

  • to change your personal details including your password
  • to present to other members as many or as few contact details as you wish
  • to set your preferences regarding how you are notified of your bookings, cancellations etc
  • to elect to be notified of court slot times (say Saturday morning slots) which become available due to cancellation.

Handy hints

  • Ensure your email address is correct as most of the communications to you from the system rely upon that email address being correct
  • You might find it helpful to others to upload one or more pictures of yourself. Join Roger Federer and several other luminaries at http://oldcollege.mycourts.co.uk/directory.asp (access to this page is restricted to logged in members)
