OTC is introducing several changes for the 2021 season. Please review our policies below.
These policies are subject to change based on court capacity and in effort to ensure reasonable access.
We offer many opportunities that cater to our members different needs. Our courts are open for play between 7am-11pm daily from late April until early November.
OTC would like for all our members to have access to this great benefit. Please be considerate if your plans change & cancel your reservations as soon as possible.
We ask that you be fair and share!
One of the first things you will notice is that we use the term 'reservations'. This is the term CourtReserve uses for court bookings. You will see the Reservations button on both the Member Portal and the CourtReserve app.
To preserve the dual booking options from last year, Skedda and Benchapp, we will deploy 2 separate reservation approaches in CourtReserve. To reserve a closed court for you and fellow players (aka Skedda), you will select a 'reserve' option on the daily calendar. For open group play (aka Benchapp) you will sign-up to an 'event' on the calendar
OTC will monitor court usage, as well as your feedback, and adjust our policies if necessary.
4 Court Reservations (Skedda)
5 Event Reservations (Benchapp)
A 'week' is Monday through Sunday
Courts will be available for reservation and event sign-up exactly 7 days and 1 hour prior to the court time.
You can reserve or sign-up for a new week regardless of your reservation and event status for the current week, e.g., if you have 7 reservations this week, on Monday at 08:00 you can reserve a 09:00 court for the following Monday, the start of a new week.
CourtReserve will restrict any player from being on 2 or more concurrent reservations or events, i.e., you can't be booked on 2 courts at the same time.
Players can play on consecutive court times. Note that both reservations will count against your 7 day limit.
Note: for non-COVID, max bookings will be set at 7 reservations and 5 events.
Access to unused courts for members already at weekly maximums
To minimize unused courts, the OTC has a Last Minute Reservations policy whereby members can make a reservation or join an event once they have maxed out on their weekly reservations and/or events.
Last Minute Reservations can be made in CourtReserve up 18 hours in advance of the court time.
