For a non-member parent booking a court for a child who is a member, remember to select the child's name after signing in from the menu in the top-right corner under your name or a head symbol to avoid the non-member fee.

How to book -- for 2 hours

posted 30 Oct 2020, 00:06 by James Manger   [ updated 7 Dec 2020, 02:43 by Doncaster Tc ]

Book for 2 hours by changing the UNTIL time
To book a court, first find an available court & time on the booking sheet. Click the 1-hour slot when you want to start playing. The next screen lists the court, date, from and until times for the booking. On this screen you can change the until time to book for longer than 1 hour.

The current configuration (30 Oct 2020) allows each member to make 1 booking per day, for 1 or 2 hours. Booking can be made for today or tomorrow. This configuration is likely to change as corona virus rules change and the club sees how much demand there is for courts.

How to book a court -- for a Junior member

posted 25 Oct 2020, 21:21 by James Manger   [ updated 7 Dec 2020, 02:45 by Doncaster Tc ]

A parent (or guardian or "Main contact") can book a court for a junior member.
Just make sure you are acting on their behalf by clicking your name in the top-right corner and selecting the junior member's name.
That should get us past most "Access denied" errors.
Access denied for non-member parent



How to book a court -- members only

posted 21 Oct 2020, 14:11 by James Manger   [ updated 7 Dec 2020, 02:42 by Doncaster Tc ]

play.tennis.com.au/doncastertennisclub website

Doncaster Tennis Club is going to use online tools hosted by Tennis Australia to book our tennis courts and manage memberships.
All members will need to book a court online at play.tennis.com.au/doncastertennisclub. Prices for members are unchanged: booking is free during the day; and $25/hour for a court under lights at night.
Before a member can book a court they need to have an account at tennis.com.au that is linked to their Doncaster Tennis Club membership.
For current members (who renewed their membership in July/August 2020) the first step will be receiving an email (probably on Thursday, 22 October 2020):
Subject: Invitation to Doncaster Tennis Club on Play Tennis
From: Doncaster Tennis Club <no-reply@comms.play.tennis.com.au>
Hi <First name>,
James Manger has invited you to register with Doncaster Tennis Club.
Register or login now
...
On clicking the link in the email, most people will need to register (create a new account). That includes choosing a password to sign-in with, or linking to a Facebook or Google account (avoiding the need for another password). A few people may already have an existing account at play.tennis.com.au from previous activity with Tennis Australia, in which case you can just login. 
Once you can sign-in you can "Book a Court". There are links to the booking form from the club's website (www.doncastertc.org.au) and from play.tennis.com.au/doncastertennisclub.
  1. Choose the day you wish to play using the calendar tool 📅 or the arrows beside the date.
  2. Check all the courts — not all 12 are visible at once — using the large arrows beside the court numbers.
  3. Pick an available slot.
  4. Complete the booking by adding other players: + ADD PLAYER > Choose Player > New Player > enter name & select "Member"
  5. Read the COVID-19 guidelines and tick the box, then CONFIRM your booking.
You will receive an email confirming the booking details.
Book your court online form
COVID19 restrictions will apply initially, only allowing 10 people at the courts at a time. Only 5 courts will be available (3, 4, 5, 6, and 12). Use the arrows to check if court 12 is available.
If you cannot attend, make sure to cancel your booking so others can use the court.
