Booking Rules

BUTTERFLY TENNIS CLUB (BTC) 

COURT BOOKINGS/RULES


  • Due to the Covid-19 lockdown, we are currently experiencing a higher number of people playing than normal. There have been some changes. Currently you may only have a maximum booking of 2 hours, regardless of peak or off peak times. 
  • Please include your partner's name when booking. 
  • If you cannot play, please cancel the booking ASAP, and at least 24 hours before the booking. There are too many instances of people cancelling last minute and depriving others of the opportunity to play. This is the same as not turning up for the booking.
Peak Time Bookings : Peak members (all members who are not Off-Peak) may have a maximum of 2 hours of Peak bookings in the system at any one time. MyCourts will not allow bookings in excess of this time limit. In practice members may either have one Peak 90 min slot, or two 1-hour slots (they may either be consecutive or not).

Off-Peak Time Bookings : All members may have up to 2 hours of Off-Peak bookings in the system at any one time. MyCourts will not allow bookings in excess of this time limit.

Re-booking : The MyCourts system resets itself at the end of each day. Members will have to wait until the day after a live booking to book more playing time.

Guests : Guests are welcome but would be expected to join if they play more than 3 times in a Membership Year

Be on time
  • If any court is not in use ten minutes after the booking period starts the booking is not valid.

Proof of Booking
  • Print outs or mobile phones can be taken as ‘proof’ of booking. 
  • If no proof is available, then members are asked to be reasonable, but the person on court will be deemed to have priority.

Children
  • An adult should accompany children under 13. 
  • Any unaccompanied child behaving irresponsibly may be asked to leave.

Code of Conduct
  • The courts are not for use for cycling, skates, roller blades, or for any other ball games which cause any disruption to tennis players or damage to the surface.

Management
We are a Community Club and are trying to ensure fair playing time for all. All club management, administration and maintenance is done voluntarily by club members.
