    Airhall booking policy and bye law changes Reminder

    Dear Members,

    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 rules:

    1. Members are permitted a maximum of 3 hours of play per week (a week is defined as Monday to Sunday inclusive, and court usage counts for all members are reset each Monday).
    2. 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.
    3. Members must name all players on their court bookings and the member making the booking must be on court.

    Please note we advise all the members when booking private coaching sessions to ensure they add their coaches as opponents in the following format “Coach Jane Smith” - in order 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 during the course of this Airhall season 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 classes).
    • Infringement 3: Member loses all booking and playing privileges for 1 month (no access to tennis, squash or gym classes).
    • 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. If you have not listed all of your opponents you can email the Club at Airhall@suttonltc.com within 3 days of the booking.

    These rules came into force for Airhall bookings from Monday 31 October onwards. A number of infringements have already been issued. Please ensure you respect all the rules.

    Yours in tennis,

    Sutton LTC Tennis Committee

    Coaches Corner

    2nd Serve

    Play points only using your second serve..i.e. You don’t have a 1st serve. This is a great exercise for dealing with the pressure we all feel when having to hit our second serve especially during a close match or when we are break point down. The game is also really good practice for the returner who should be looking to practice putting pressure on their opponent in this situation.
