20/05/2020 - New booking system for the tennis courts


You can now book, re-arrange and cancel your court bookings by either accessing the booking system using a browser (Chrome, Edge, Safari etc) or using an app you can download to your device. There is no need to message in the WhatsApp social group to make future court bookings.


You will need to login into the new booking system using one of the options shown when you launch it, but most will have an LTA account. If you use this option, sign in using your LTA username and password, you will be asked to accept a Privacy Policy (only on your first login). You will then get access to the LTC court booking page.


If you don't have an LTA account, you can set one up here (the lite membership is free) or use one of the other options e.g. google, microsoft


We have transferred all existing books across to the new booking system. Please note, that as we have moved them across for you, you won't be able to cancel them yourself. However, any new bookings you make, are managed by you and you do this using the 'view my bookings' link on the booking site/app. Should you need to cancel any existing bookings, please contact us via the WhatsApp social group.


Any questions, please contact us and we can help you set this up.
