Racquet Booking Policy

  • Bookings can be made from 8am on the day, and thereafter 8 days in advance. Racquet courses are available for booking once published on the timetable.
  • All charges must be paid for in full at the time of booking. Refunds will only apply if 24 hours notice of cancellation is given.
  • Booking rights follow peak and off-peak membership access rights.
  • Clubs reserve the right to introduce advanced booking restrictions at times where courts are in high demand. At such times, the member will only be able to make one advanced booking per day. Subject to availability, additional bookings in high demand periods can be made 24 hours in advance.
  • Booking durations are: 1 hour for singles and 1 hour 30 minutes for doubles; these can be extended for 30 minutes outside periods of high demand. Squash courts can be booked for 40 minutes.
  • Bookings require the names of all players. If players’ names are not available at the time of booking, the booking will be held provisionally. To confirm the court booking players names must be provided 24 hours prior to the booking start time or the court will be released. Amendments to players’ names can be made at any time prior to the booking start time.
  • Courts for private tennis lessons can be booked online, at reception or via the coach. To book lessons less than 24 hours in advance please speak directly to your coach.
  • If a booking is not used or is cancelled with less than 24 hours advance notice, a ‘late cancellation’ will apply to the member that booked the court, unless the court is rebooked.
  • If a court is empty 10 minutes after a booking start time, the court will be released for use by other members and a late cancellation will apply.
  • Three late cancellations in any 90 day period will result in the loss of advanced booking rights for 1 month for courts and private lessons.
  • Clubs may have designated non bookable ‘walk on courts’. To play on a ‘walk on court’ you must register your interest in person at reception 15 minutes before the start time. The club will allocate the court.
  • Bookings for junior members under 14 years of age can only be made by an adult (parent or guardian).
  • Vantage members can book courts in advance at any David Lloyd Leisure Club.
  • Members can arrange to play with guests. You will need to have a valid guest pass.
  • Clubs reserve the right to pre book courts and restrict bookings made by junior members.
  • Health & Fitness members can book a tennis, squash or badminton court on the day if one is available. Additional charges will apply, except where squash and badminton is included in your membership.
  • If a Health & Fitness adult member is found to be on court without paying the appropriate fee, they must pay the court fee and the booking rights for everyone on their membership will be lost for one month.
