Online Booking rules

(adjusted for the 2020 Covid-19 season)

Social Distancing

This includes following the social distancing protocols established by the federal, provincial and municipal governments. Copies of these guidelines can be found here.

AT THE COURTS:

Important things to know

Players show up 10 minutes before their scheduled time. They must check in with the court steward on duty. At 5 minutes before your court time, inform the players on your court that you are there for the next session

Players will be expected to leave the court when 55 minutes has expired.

Players who are not removed may play through if desired.
Players arriving more than 10 minutes after their scheduled court time lose their court time.

Court Timing
Davisville Hours will run from 9:00 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. Individual courts will open for play at staggered times so that we can ensure that they are ready to receive our members and to avoid members gathering in large numbers.
Davisville Courts will change over at staggered times: court 5,6 at the hour, court 4,5 at 10 min after the hour and court 1, 2  at 20 min after the hour. There will be a 5 minute “dead time” between bookings

Lessons
Lessons booked with our pros do not count towards your 2 session limit. Private and semi-private (2 people) lessons can be booked with Brian Ahlberg. Brian can be reached at headpro@davisvilletennisclub.com
