Can I book before or after my team match?
Yes but you will need to see the court monitor to book a court and if a court is available.
What if a team match goes long and I have the 9pm court booked?
The court monitor will endeavor to assign you a free court, but team play has priority (see Rule about booking courts after a Team Match). Teams will do their best to start on time but members should book the court understanding that there is a chance they may start late.
Can I book for 2 consecutive hours? No, bookings may not be made consecutively. You can book one hour and then see if there are any open courts afterwards as a walk on. Or you can book 1pm-2pm and 3-4pm but you can’t book 2-3pm.
