1. Purpose of the Reservation System

The Reservation System is intended to prevent the situation where members arrive at the tennis courts and find both courts in use.  It serves as a communication tool to enable players to better organize their plans and their use of the courts in a cooperative manner. It also is intended to insure that the maximum number of players get court time during peak demand periods, which are typically during the morning hours and on weekends or holidays.

Reserving tennis court time(s), at the Diamond A Recreation Center, is available to all members by accessing a tennis court scheduling web site, provided by holdmycourt.com.

2. Diamond A Tennis Reservations Rules


1. Only Diamond A Rec. Center Members may use the scheduling software to reserve times at our tennis courts.

2. No sharing of passwords is allowed.  Each member must register and receive their own password.

 

3. Reserved time slots can be set in 30-minute increments for up to 90

minutes of play.  The default is 90 minutes.

4. The software allows reservations for TODAY and TOMORROW only.

5. The software allows members to schedule for TODAY at any time during the day.

 

6. Members may schedule a reservation for TOMORROW any time after

12:01 am. TODAY.

7. The software allows each member to reserve ONE time slot per day.  Two members of a group are not permitted to reserve back to back time slots to allow their group to play for several hours.

8. The software will send a confirmation to your email, once you have reserved a court time. You may bring a printout of that email, to the court, to verify (if necessary) that you have the court reserved.  Note that the website displays nicely on a smart phone, so you could just bring your phone.

9. On arrival at the court, with your printout or smartphone, if no one is on your court, just take the court and start play. Otherwise, inform those playing that you have the court reserved, and allow them to finish their current game before taking the court.

10. Once your reserved time is up, if no one is there to claim the court, you are welcome to continue to play as long as you want. However, if someone shows up late to claim the court, you are obligated to yield the court.  This applies, whether or not they have a reservation, and you have played at least 1 1/2 hours already.

11.  Although a member can make only ONE reservation per day, you are welcome to play anytime that the court is not reserved. So, you could play in the morning at a time you reserved, and then play again later in day, when the courts are not reserved.

12.  If you decide that you cannot play at the time you reserved, please go to the website promptly and cancel your reservation. Then the court can be reserved by other players.
