Open Tennis: Book-a-Court - Gate Access System
At the 2015 AGM, the Club looked into infrastructure to allow better member access to the courts, particularly at night under lights.
In conjunction with Tennis Victoria (“Open Tennis”) and the City of Greater Dandenong, a new gate access system was installed.
This new system involves using a unique code on a keypad at the gate to enter, which replaced the old key system. When an account is registered, a 4 digit code is provided via the Tennis Victoria online booking system. The Book-a-Court system can be accessed via the club website (computer / tablet / phone).
Exit from the courts does not require any code, but we ask that players ensure the gate is shut after you enter or exit.
For night play, there will be the ability to book lights for a half-hourly light fee (the lights will come on and turn off automatically).
This new access will make court availability easier and fairer for all players and allow night tennis play under lights. There will be no charge for members to use the courts – the only fee for members will be for the use of lights.
Under the terms of Open Tennis, the booking system will also allow non-members to book a court. Non-members will need to pay a court hire fee in advance online.
The following requirements are requested of all players using the Keysborough Tennis Club courts.
- That players do not allow any person into the courts except your playing group. All members and fee-paying non-members will have their own unique access code. The Committee will be monitoring this and has the ability to lock out people who abuse the system.
- Competition and coaching will have court reservations in place where bookings for certain courts will not be allowed and where the gate will be open for these purposes.
The Committee believes this system is a fairer system and gives greater access for all tennis users.
