TENNIS COURT BOOKING USER GUIDE 2015-16
1. TENNIS COURT BOOKING BOARD
Grass courts at all times and courts 13-16 before 4:00pm are only bookable on the
Tennis Court Booking Board in person, at the club. This is located on the upper
terrace overlooking the first row of grass courts.
Look at the board and select the next available court leaving no gaps. Use the pen
provided to write the time and names of all the players in your group against the
court you are booking in the allocated slot. Spare pens may be provided by the bar if
required.
2. MYCOURTS® BOOKING SYSTEM
Courts 8-12 and courts 13-16 after 4:00pm are bookable on the Mycourts® booking
system. Members book courts by logging into the Mycourts® booking system
remotely online or via touch screens located downstairs by the club office corridor
and upstairs adjacent to the main entrance to the bar. Alternatively members may
phone reception who can book a court for them.
Logging in Online
Go to http://thewimbledonclub.mycourts.co.uk/ and log in using your username and
password. These will have been issued to you when you joined the club. If you have
forgotten your username and/or password, click on the ‘Forgotten Password’ link and
enter your email address. Providing this matches the email address stored in the
Mycourts® booking system database you will receive an automatic reminder.
Logging in via Touch Screens
Log in with your PIN number which will have been issued to you when the booking
system was created or when you joined the club. If you have forgotten your PIN
number, you can retrieve it using the ‘Forgotten Password’ link and entering your
email address as above.
Adding Credit to Your Mycourts® Account
Every member has a personal booking account which holds credit for the purpose of
making a booking. Your balance is shown on the left of the screen after you log in.
Bookings may only be made if enough credit exists in your account to cover
the booking fee. You can add credit by paying online using a debit or credit card
(recommended) or buying vouchers from the bar.
Paying Online
After logging in choose the “Buy Credit Online” option from the menu on the left of
the screen and follow the instructions. You can choose the amount of credit you wish
to add in a single transaction. All transactions are PAYPAL protected.

group.

main entrance to the bar to confirm their attendance for their Mycourts ® court
booking.
Select the ‘Check In’ option on the touch screen and check in with your PIN number
which will have been issued to you when the booking system was created or when
you joined the club.
If you have forgotten your PIN number, you can retrieve it using the ‘Forgotten
Password’ link on the Mycourts® website http://thewimbledonclub.mycourts.co.uk/
and entering your email address. Providing this matches the email address stored in
the Mycourts® booking system database you will receive an automatic reminder.
4. BOOKING CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS
All members must cancel a court as soon as possible so that the court may be
booked by other members.
To cancel a court on the Tennis Court Booking Board, use the eraser provided to
remove the time and names of all the players in your group. Spare erasers may be
provided by the bar if required.
To cancel a court in Mycourts®, log in and select “My Bookings” on the left of the
screen. Your booking fee is automatically refunded as credit in your account when
cancelling at least 48 hours prior to your booking. If you cancel a court less than 48
TENNIS COURT BOOKING USER GUIDE 2015-16
hours prior to the booking, the booking fee is only refunded if the court is
subsequently booked by another member.
All court bookings are monitored and members who regularly book courts but
fail to use them despite fair weather or regularly cancel booked courts within
48 hours may have their court booking rights removed at the discretion of the
tennis committee.
5. BOOKING ERRORS
If you make an error and book the wrong court on the Tennis Court Booking Board,
use the eraser provided to remove the time and names of all the players in your
group. Spare erasers may be provided by the bar if required.
If you make an error and book the wrong court in Mycourts®, book the correct court
and cancel the incorrect booking. If the error occurs within the cancellation charge
period (i.e. less than 48 hours prior to the booking), send an explanatory email to the
rackets administrator, Emma Mathews: [email protected] and Emma
will credit your account with the amount that you paid in error.
6. TURNING ON COURT LIGHTS
Indoor Courts
The lights are controlled manually by keys inside the sports hall and air dome.
When you arrive at the club check in at the bar, sign in the key book and leave a
deposit in exchange for a light key. The deposit is normally your club card but you
may leave your car keys or driver’s license instead.
Before going on court, check the court booking system. If another member is playing
directly after your session, you must remember to leave the lights on when you finish
as they take about 15 minutes to cool down before they may be switched on again.
When you reach your court locate the light control unit. In the sports hall this is
situated on the wall directly opposite when you enter the main lobby area. In the air
dome this is on the left just inside the revolving door. Insert your key in the keyhole
with your court number on it and turn it to ‘on’. The lights will come on. Leave the key
in the light control unit whilst you are playing.
When you finish, if you are required to leave the lights on, withdraw your key leaving
the switch in the ‘on’ position. If you are required to turn the lights off, turn your
key back to the ‘off’ position before withdrawing it. Return your key to the bar, sign
the key book and collect your deposit.
If you are the final session of the evening in the air dome, the bar staff will also give
you a key to lock the revolving door when you finish. It is the bar staff’s responsibility
to check the lights are turned off and the air dome is locked up.
Outdoor Floodlit Courts
TENNIS COURT BOOKING USER GUIDE 2015-16
Lights for the floodlit courts are controlled at the bar. Please ask the bar staff to turn
the floodlights on for your session.
7. TURNING ON COURT LIGHTS WHEN THE BAR IS CLOSED
This only affects indoor courts as the bar is open when floodlit courts are bookable.
When you arrive at the club collect your court key from reception and sign in the key
book. When you have finished, return the key to reception and sign it back in.
8. PERSONALISING YOUR MYCOURTS® LOGIN
After logging into the Mycourts® booking system you may select the “My bookings”,
“My Settings” and “My Profile” tabs on the left of the screen to personalise your login.
My Bookings contains all your bookings, including those made by other members
who have selected you as an “opponent”. Useful features include: click on the
envelope to send an email message to an opponent for a booking; click on an
opponent’s name to view their contact details; click “cancel” to cancel a booking.
My Settings allows you to change your password, PIN and subscribe/unsubscribe
from email alerts including confirmation of your court bookings/cancellations and
cancelled court alerts (select the days of the week and times of interest to you).
My Profile allows you to see and edit how you appear to other members in the
members’ directory. Upload photos and edit your contact details and member profile.
