Racquets Booking Policy

  1. Court and class bookings can be made online from 8am, 9 days in advance online or 8 days in advance by the reservations team, in person or over the phone. Racquet courses are available for booking once published on the timetable.


  2. All chargeable classes and courses must be paid for in full at the time of booking. Refunds will only apply if 24 hours notice of cancellation is given for the class or before the first instance of a course.


  3. Booking rights follow peak and off-peak membership access rights.


  4. Clubs reserve the right to introduce advanced booking restrictions at times where courts are in high demand. During such times, the member will only be able to make one advanced booking per day. Subject to availability, additional bookings in high demand periods can be made 24 hours in advance.


  5. Booking durations are 1 hour for singles and 1 hour 30 minutes for doubles during periods within high demand. Bookings can be made for 1 hour 30 minutes for singles and 2 hours for doubles at all other times.


  6. Bookings require the names of all players. If players’ names are not available at the time of booking, the booking will be held provisionally. To confirm the court booking players names must be provided 24 hours prior to the booking start time or the court will be released. Amendments to players’ names can be made at any time prior to booking start time.


  7. Courts for private tennis lessons can be booked online, at reception, or via the coach. To book lessons less than 24 hours in advance please speak directly to your coach.


  8. If a booking is not used or is cancelled with less than 24 hours advance notice, a ‘late cancellation’ will apply to the member who booked the court, unless the court is rebooked.


  9. Three late cancellations in any 90 day period will result in the loss of advanced booking rights for 1 month for courts and private lessons.


  10. If a court is empty 10 minutes after a booking start time, the court will be released for use by other members.


  11. Bookings for junior members under 14 years of age can only be made by an adult (parent or guardian).


  12. Harbour Club Full members can book courts up to 9 days in advance online at their home Club or any David Lloyd Leisure Club, or 8 days in advance via reception. Chelsea Harbour Club Full members can also book at Notting Hill Harbour Club.


  13. Clubs may have designated one ‘walk on’ court which can be booked from 7.30pm the day before, via the reservations team.


  14. Members can arrange to play with guests. You will need to have a valid guest pass and declare the guest’s name on the booking as per policy point 6.


  15. Clubs reserve the right to pre book courts and restrict bookings made by junior members.


  16. Health & Fitness members can book a tennis, squash, badminton or padel court on the day at any David Lloyd Leisure club if one is available. Additional charges payable at the time of booking will apply.


  17. If a Health and Fitness adult member is found to be on court without paying the appropriate fee, they must pay the court fee and the booking rights for everyone on their membership will be lost for one month.
