Does it matter if I join part way through the year?
Your membership will operate for a year from purchase, with the option to cancel the following year.

Once I have paid for membership do I need to pay court fees?
Courts are free once you have bought your membership, except for periods when floodlighting is needed, for which a £5 per hour charge will apply.

Do I get a membership for each person in a household?
You will have one membership per £52.50 paid for everyone in a household, and this enables you to book one court at time, for up to two hours in a day and for up to eight days in advance.

How do I pay for the flood lights?
Flood lighting will be charged for courts booked from 8.00pm in Summer and 5.00pm in Winter. For this, £5 per hour will be charged when you book courts online or for bookings at the pavilion shop (when open) for these court times.

What happens if there is another person playing on the court when I arrive?
You will be able to resolve the issue by reference to your online booking record, usually also with the help of BTC staff if the shop is open.

How do I cancel a booking?
We ask you to cancel on the website or by phone as soon as you know you will not be able to play, as a courtesy to others.

Am I tied into a contract?
If you do not pay to use the courts the following year, your membership will lapse and you will not pay again.
