Booking the Dome

12 August 2020

Update ( 18th September 2020 )

  • ClubSpark ( chosen booking system ) is ready for use by Senior and Daytime Members.
  • Invite-Emails have been sent, please Contact Us if you did not get an invite.

Proposal

The Committee have agreed that for a trial period senior and daytime members will be allowed to block book the Dome in accordance with the daily slots available for a 12 week period commencing Monday 28th September and finishing on Sunday 19th December. A review as to whether to continue the arrangement will be made in November.

Only one block booking per person will be allowed and the whole booking fee must be paid up front. £60 if booking 12 x 1/2 hour slots, £120 if booking 12 x 1 hour slots or £180 if booking 12 x 1.5 hour slots.

Please note that block bookings are available during the day from 10.00  in 30 minute slots with a maximum of 3 slots allowed but from 17.30 the courts can only be booked for 3 fixed slots from 17.30 to 19.00 – 19.00 to 20.30 and 20.30 to 22.00.

To start with we need to know which, if any, sessions you would like to book so that in the event that there is a clash we can decide who gets the slot – initially by mutual consent but then by draw. For this reason you might wish to indicate an acceptable alternative day or time.

The closing date for indicating your block booking preference will be Sunday 29th August and hopefully the process will be completed by the following weekend.

This is something new for everyone which is why we are having a trial to start with but if successful it is the intention to continue in the New Year with those who have block booked having preference to rebook the same times. However in order to accommodate new members the whole process will then be repeated each Autumn.

If you wish to block book a court then please advise your name and the day and time slots which you wish to book and an alternative, if you have one, to lythamtennisclub@gmail.com by 29th August. Only email applications will be considered.

Regards – the Committee
