There is still the option to book by phone (416-699-2412) or at the clubhouse, during monitored hours. 

No guests are allowed Mon-Fri. 6.30-9.30pm and Saturday and Sunday 8.00am- 12.30pm.  ​

  • Bookable time slots are 45 minutes for singles and one hour and a half for doubles.

  • Bookable time slots start at 8:00am. The last timeslot of the day is 9:30pm-10:15pm. Players who are on the courts at 10.15pm can play until the lights go off automatically at 10.40pm.

  • Courts can be booked up to two days in advance. 

  • Players are allowed to be in a court booking only once per day.  

  • Players are allowed to be in only two advance bookings.

  • Courts can be booked in advance up until the time of play.  So you can book a court in advance including on the same day.  

  • Courts must be booked by one of the players who will be playing (in a singles or doubles group).

  • To book singles, you must provide two names, for doubles four names.   

  • Three players are considered to be a singles group, not a doubles group.   

  • Timeslots for socials, junior lessons, public hours etc. will be blocked off in advance.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Substitutions prior to play are allowed as long as the player(s) substituted in has/have not played already and is/are not named in another advance booking for the same day.   

  • When a doubles group has completed a 90 minute time slot they are entitled to continue to play on a walk-on basis, but only for a 45 minute time slot. 

  • If a member(s) signs up to play with a guest and the guest doesn't show up, the member who booked the court will be responsible to pay the $5 guest fee.

  • The need for players to cancel a court is unavoidable at times. To cancel a booking members can cancel/delete a booking online (preferred), or by phoning the monitor at the clubhouse. If there is no monitor at the clubhouse, leave a voicemail message. 

  • A single player wishing to practise, or a single player with a ball machine cannot book a court. The best time for either is during the week during daytime afternoons when no booking is required and there is generally more free court time. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Walk-on Courts

  • A walk-on applies to an unbooked timeslot.

 

  • Players are candidates for a walk-on if they are at the clubhouse and ready to play, with two or three players for a singles timeslot, or four players for doubles.

 

  • Walk-on courts will be assigned or claimed on a “first come, first served” basis with the following guidelines: ​If players finished playing at the same time, and would like to continue to play as walk-ons, priority goes first to players who are already waiting, and then to players who have played less time. All things being equal who gets the court will be decided by the spin of a racquet. 

 

  • If there is a monitor at the club he/she will assist in managing walk-ons.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Violations of the Court Booking Rules that will incur a warning or suspension 

 

  • A doubles group, booked for a 90 minute time slot cannot be converted to a singles group of two to play 90 minutes of singles. 

 

  • Cancelling a booking less than four hours before the booked time.

  • Not showing up when you have booked a court in advance, with no cancellation online or by phone message. 

  • A player joining a singles or doubles booking as a substitute, and who is named in a prior or later advanced booking the same day.

​​

In addition to the violations mentioned above the executive reserves the right to issue penalties based on any additional scenarios used to circumvent the booking rules.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Members found to be violating or circumventing the booking policies will be subject to a series of escalating suspensions.
§    First and second offense: Warnings
§    Third offense: One week playing suspension
§    Fourth offense: Two weeks playing suspension 

 

If you are suspended, you will receive an email notifying you of the suspension.  During this period, you will not be able to play or make any bookings.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Unplayable Courts etc. 

  • If the court monitor determines that the courts are unplayable due to the weather conditions, he/she will cancel the bookings impacted.  

  • If there is no monitor at the clubhouse due to a rainout situation, call the next day to make an advance booking, at that point it will be for the same day or the following day(s), or use the online booking option.

  • Upon arrival at the Club all players must check in with the court monitor prior to proceeding onto their booked court, so please arrive at least 5 minutes before your booking. 

  • There is a ten minute grace period, so players who have reserved a court can arrive up to ten minutes late. After the ten minute grace period the court will go to members on the walk-on list managed by the court monitor.

  • Unless agreed to by the court monitor, players shall play on the court that they were assigned by the monitor. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

During times where there is no monitor at the club we expect members to adhere to the rules above and to use fair and considerate behaviour.

 

Monitored Hours: 6.30pm – 9.30pm Monday to Friday. 8.40am – 12.40pm on Saturday and Sunday.
