Minimum 6 hours cancellation notice for casual Court Hire and Social Tennis for extenuating circumstances. (Please try to give as much notice as you can so your court time or place can be booked by another player, and a credit can then be issued.)

RAIN – In the event of rain, you are required to call the centre, we will advise if the courts are playable.  If the courts are playable, then your booking stands.  Failure to do so will result in being charged for the court hire.

Tennis Anyone - Social Tennis


Playing at the Wrong Level

The centre reserves the right to advise players of their appropriate level/standard which overrides a player's self-assessment. On rare occasions players can grade themselves incorrectly - usually too high - and a coach or staff member will advise them to which level class or social tennis group they can participate in.

If a staff member advises you that your level is not appropriate for a particular Class/Social Group we ask players not to take offence and dispute the assessment. The centre expects Members/Players to follow and respect the advice of the coach/staff in an appropriate way.

Once players have been advised not to participate at a certain level, they cannot book into that class or group until such a time as they reach that level through coaching and regular practice - the staff will advise when a player is ready to move up.

Players who continue to re-book into levels where they have been advised otherwise will be refused entry into that level.

Centre players may request a grading session with a centre coach or the Director to verify their level if they feel it is too low.
