Booking Rules for members

Rules & Information about Booking the Ilmington Tennis Club Courts.

Members - After reading the rules below you can book a court by selecting 'Booking' above or go to and select Booking from the menu.

Only paid up members can book courts.

✦ Please make an online booking in the required time slot. You are only allowed to book the courts for one hour at a time. If no-one books the hour after yours, and no-one is waiting to play, then you may continue playing.

✦A booking only gives you priority for the court for the first 15 minutes of the hour. If you have not turned up by quarter past the hour then you forfeit your booking. If someone else is there and wants to play then they have the right to continue for the rest of that hour, even if you turn up late and want to play.

✦League matches will take priority over any other bookings. Occasionally a league match has to be postponed and re-arranged. If it needs to be re-arranged within the two week window on the system, then we will ask the club players to reschedule their match and allow the league match to be played. We will give as much notice as possible.

Group Bookings. If you represent a group and would like to make a regular booking for coaching or team play, then please contact either of the committee members below.

Light Tokens will be required when floodlights are used and these can be purchased from The Howard Arms pub in Ilmington. They cost £3.50 each and last for an hour. A “5 minute warning” light on the clubhouse pillar will come on after 55 minutes (white for court 1, red for court 2). There is a meter in a cabinet on the side of the clubhouse which is accessible with a code. Pub staff will provide you with the code for the light box.

If you have any questions regarding the on line booking system please contact one of the committee members below:
