Online court booking

Book squash courts online at Old Crocs from July 3rd!!!

For all court bookings from July 3rd, we will use an online system provided by ebookingonline.net which will replace the existing manual wall chart currently used by members and which requires attendance at the Club to book.

Members will be able to book courts using a browser on their PC (eg. Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Microsoft Edge, etc) or from their mobile phone.

The first dates available for booking via the online system will be Monday, July 3rd and the booking times will be as now, ie. all 40 minutes; Glassback 8:00pm, 8:40pm, 9:20pm, etc; Courts 1 & 2 7:00pm, 7:40pm, 8:20pm, etc.

To introduce the new system:

  1. An email will be distributed from Sunday 19/06 with:
    • details of how to initially login to the system (create a password, etc),
    • a link to the User Guide (court booking, etc)
    • Note 1: All members who could potentially book courts will have an account and should receive this email. This will include Junior members who, it is recognised, may not actually book courts on their own behalf and whose email address may actually be that of their parent.
    • Note 2: If we have your email address and you don’t receive this email by Monday 20/06, please (a) check your junk/spam folder, (b) inform us via email on info@oldcrossleyans-squash.co.uk
  2. For those members who haven’t provided an email address, a password will be created on their behalf. This will be sent to these members, along with their username (a 3-digit number), via text. They can then logon using these details and set a password of their own choosing. Members can update their own details to add an email address if they wish.
  3. A series of ‘Show & Tell’ sessions will be held in the Club bar on the following dates – Monday 20/06 at 7:30pm (led by Freddie), Wed 22/06 at 7:00pm (led by Tony), Mon 27/06 at 7:30pm (led by Freddie).
  4. As will be explained during the ‘Show & Tell’ sessions, some restrictions will be placed on bookings;
    • courts can be booked up to 21 days in advance (similar to the current manual system),
    • members will be able to book a maximum of 3 courts per week during the peak period, ie 5:40pm to 8:00p.
  5. As unwanted courts can now be cancelled without the need to attend the Club, members should ensure that any unwanted bookings are cancelled as soon as possible. This is good practice and in the best interest of fair play across the Club so that members are not blocked from booking courts that are subsequently cancelled with short notice.
  6. In line with the introduction of the online system, please note that payment for lights at this time is still cash and will rise to £4.00 per session from July 1st.
  7. All block bookings (eg. Summer Grand Prix, coaching sessions, etc) will be entered by system admins and will be visible to all members.
