    Changing Rooms Upgrade - Works commencing Monday 21 November

    Dear members,

    We would like to advise you the changing rooms upgrade will begin this Monday 21st November.

    Airhall booking policy and bye law changes

    Dear Members,


    Just a reminder of the rules which came into force for Airhall bookings from Monday 31 October onwards.
    The Airhall is a wonderful resource for the Club, and is in high demand. In order to promote opportunities for wider and fairer usage of the Airhall when Bradshaw 1 and 2 are covered during the winter months, the Management Committee have approved the following:

    • Members are permitted a maximum of 3 hours of play per week
    • A week is defined as Monday to Sunday inclusive
    • Court usage counts for all members are reset each Monday
    • A member cannot play in two consecutive time slots even if the time slots are booked by an opponent in singles or separate players from a doubles partnership
    • Members must name all players on their court bookings and the member making the booking must be on court
    • Coaches to appear in the booking system as “Coach Jane Smith” to provide transparency to members

    Players are requested to respect their fellow members and adhere to this policy for the winter months. The policy has been incorporated into the Tennis Court Booking Bye-Laws section of the Club constitution.

    Bookings will be reviewed for infringements on a regular basis based on booking data extracts. The following sanctions will apply for infringements of the rules:
    • Infringement 1: Warning by email, followed up by telephone.
    • Infringement 2: Member loses all booking and playing privileges for 1 week (no access to tennis, squash or gym).
    • Infringement 3: Member loses all booking and playing privileges for 1 month (no access to tennis, squash or gym).
    • Infringement 4: Member will be a subject of a formal complaint for breach of club rules which will be referred to the Club Hearings Committee who may consider additional sanctions.

    Members please note - limitations of the MyCourts booking system do not allow:
    • automated checking of booking counts at time of booking
    • restriction of booking privileges to tennis courts only

    To report an issue regarding the Airhall, members should email the Club at Airhall@suttonltc.com. If a last-minute substitute is required for a doubles game in the Airhall, this should be reported by the booking member in an email to the above address.

    Please take note of the revised Peak and Off-Peak hours as set out below.

    Peak Hours for the Airhall:
    - Monday - Thursday: 9.00am to 10.00pm
    - Friday: 9.00am to 8.00pm
    - Weekends and Bank Holidays: 9.00am to 6.00pm

    Off-Peak Hours for the Airhall:
    - Monday - Sunday: 7.00am to 9.00am
    - Monday - Thursday: 10.00pm to 11.00pm
    - Friday: 8.00pm to 11.00pm
    - Weekends and Bank Holidays: 6.00pm to 11.00pm

    These rules came into force for Airhall bookings from Monday 31 October onwards.

    Yours in tennis,
