Reservation Policies

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.

Note that our policies assume, for the moment, no COVID-19 restrictions and are therefore subject to change.

Max Reservations

7 Court Reservations (Skedda)

per Week

5 Event Reservations (Benchapp)

per Week

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.

Unused Courts

 

Access to unused courts for members already at weekly maximums

To minimize unused courts, the OTC will have a Last Minute Reservations process whereby members can contact the club to fill an open spot on an event* (Benchapp) even if they have maxed out on their weekly events.

Requests accepted up 12 hours in advance of the court time.

 

A club administrator will reserve the court or enter you into an event. 

 

This will be done on a first request / first serve basis.  You will be notified by email if your request is filled.

Requests for Last Minute Reservations should be made to:  LastMinBook.OrleansTennisClub

* this process does not apply to court reservations (Skedda) ... you can make an online reservation up to 12 hours in advance even if you have reached your maximum reservations.
