You can book courts at MTC whether you are a member or not (if you're not a member then you book on a 'Pay & Play' basis). For all court bookers though please ensure you have checked the 'Important Notice' on our Home page - everyone has a responsibility to adhere to the currently imposed playing restrictions as well as general play and behaviour rules.
When booking a court (unless you are practising on your own), you must add all the other participants who will be playing with you. You must also select the correct category of participant - 'Member' or 'Guest'. Guest Fees (see the Guest Fee rules here ) are payable at the time of booking . These booking rules are compulsory & failure to adhere to them may result in future bookings being blocked and/or consequences for your membership if you are a member. Members are reminded that MTC is a registered charity run by volunteers and every penny of income is vital to the long term operation of the Club - honesty with guest fees is a responsibility as part of your membership, not an option.

Note that if required, rackets (and balls) can be hired from Musselburgh Sports Centre (0131 653 5208) for a nominal fee.
Access to the courts is via a keypad system and on successful booking of a court, this will generate an access code a code which is included in the booking confirmation email which will be sent to you. Note that the combination code for the outer gate lock is also included in your booking email. If the outer gate is locked when you arrive, use this code to open it - please ensure you scramble the combination and do not leave it unlocked with the opening code visible. Also, when you are leaving and there is no-one left playing at the courts, please ensure you secure the outer gate lock (and scramble the code).
Our floodlights and fantastic all-weather artificial clay courts mean that we have a huge amount of playing time available to members, not just confined to daylight hours. Floodlighting (when it's needed) is provided free of charge on club social evenings and if you need to use the floodlights at other times (dusk to 10pm), it is payable at the same time as court bookings, and they will switch on automatically for the duration of your booking. The cost is £2 per half hour for members and £2.50 per half hour for non members.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL FLOODLIGHTS ARE NOW CONNECTED TO COURT BOOKINGS AND CANNOT BE OPERATED WITHOUT A COURT BOOKING.
Cancellations need to be made at least 1 hour before the start of the court booking to enable a refund on payments made. Within 1 hour of the booking time, no refunds will be paid. Cancellations can be made on the booking page. This applies to members and non-members.
Finally, please familiarise yourself with the court brushing requirements - it is a condition of use and expected that you brush the court after use.
