On-line Court Bookings System Goes Live

On Saturday 25th July the club will commence using ClubSpark for members to book courts, including the school courts and we are here to make that process go as smoothly as possible

At the go-live date all reoccurring bookings previously managed by Marianna and ad-hoc bookings managed by Sue will have already been entered into ClubSpark and the named member will receive an email confirmation from the system. Sue has done an amazing job for the club, please do not add to her task by contacting her for bookings after the 24th

To use the court booking system you must be a paid-up senior member or a named parent/guardian of a paid-up Junior member and have registered with ClubSpark using the link emailed to you.

You will see that courts 3 & 4 are shown as locked for the majority of the time as they still being reserved for coaching. There are some free slots, for example Monday mornings, so please look carefully. Additional slots will be freed up over time until the end of summer when Coaches will start making their own specific court bookings.

The system is extremely easy to use and there is also an App which may make life easier
