  • Sunday 9am-8pm

Courts can be booked by members six days in advance of play and by non members one day in advance.

All non-member sessions must be paid for at the point of booking. Members are allowed to book courts and classes on-line but will be charged the external fee rate should they not attend the booking. All court bookings are currently for 45 minutes unless stated otherwise. This allows time for set up of equipment between sessions. 

Back-to-back bookings are not permitted, it is not permissible to book two courts at the same time.

During term time there is limited availability to the sports hall due to student sports teams using the space as a training venue.

Members can manage their sports hall bookings through our online booking system.
