How to Book a Tennis Court

Court bookings rules

  1. You will no longer be able to turn up and book a court or take an empty court. You can only book through the free "Clubspark booker" app or you can sign in through the Clubspark website https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/WesternLTC . If you have any queries with setting up your access to booking please contact Verena Scott on vjscott123@gmail.com
  2. Only fully paid up members can access the booking system. Pay & play will be allowed at off peak times at £15 per hour. Please call the club on the day to see what might be available. 0141 339 0065
  3. A maximum of 2 visitors per month will be allowed at the following times (£5 per visitor). Mon - Fri up until 4pm and only weekends if you are playing doubles and there are a minimum of 2 members on the court.

What is allowed?

  1. Singles and doubles play with 2/4 people from any household
  2. Bookings can be made up to 7 days in advance, but you can only make one booking at a time. What does this mean? For example, if your 1st booking for the week is on a Wednesday at 10am you can then make another booking for a new day after finishing this session at 11am. (What we want to avoid is a scenario when some members book off all the best slots in advance)
  3. Even though you may only have one booking at a time if your friend books a court you can still play with them at a different time. BUT no one individual can be on any court for 2 consecutive bookings.
  4. Court bookings are all for one hour only
  5. Junior Booking Times - Monday to Friday until 6 pm. i.e. last booking at 5 pm. Weekends from 1 pm onwards. A junior playing with an adult member can play at any time.

We will be monitoring the system to make sure that it is not abused, and we will cancel any bookings that are not valid.

Arrival and Departure

  • Please drag the courts 5 minutes before the end of the hour
