Adult Coaching back at Lakewood 2022

Adult coaching is back at Lakewood, with group coaching and private coaching available for our members. We are hoping to run some more group coaching classes for beginners, improvers and advanced / competition players. The courses will probably run Thursday or Friday evenings or weekend mornings. The cost will be 60 - 80 euro depending on the course. We will schedule each course as soon as we have 8 members interested. If you are interested, go to our Events Page and let us know or email TennisLakewood@gmail.com

Smart Lighting installed

We are delighted to announce that our court lights are now automatically controlled from our eBooking system. When you book a court, the system will determine if lights are required based on our local sunset time. If lights are needed, you will be prompted to select lights at the time you book your court. Lights will turn on 6 minutes before your booked playing time to ensure that they are at optimum brightness before you play. Lights will turn off automatically immediately at the end of your booked hour. 

New - Cashless Lights Payment

Every member now has a digital Wallet on our eBooking system. You will need to top it up by credit card on our eBooking site. Simply open eBooking on your phone and click on the 3 line (burger) on the top left of the screen. This will bring you to the Main Site where you go to Manage Account. Enter the amount to top up in the "Account Top up" section. Enter your credit card details and your email address. Click on the "confirm top up" at the bottom of the top up window. You will get an email confirming your top up and after a few minutes your balance will reflect you top up.

Here's how payments will work..

When you book a court, ebooking will deduct an equal portion of the lights cost from each person on the booking e.g. if 4 people are on the booking, it will deduct 1 euro from each player's wallet. Therefore, all players on the booking must have at least 1 euro in their wallet. If a player has no credit, the person booking the court will need to accept the fees of the players with no credit, otherwise the lights cannot be booked.

If a player is substituted on a booking prior to the booked time, the player joining the booking will be charged an equal share of the lights fee and the player leaving will be refunded.

If a court booking is cancelled at least 15 minutes before the booked time, all players will be fully refunded. If a court is not cancelled at least 15 minutes before the booked time, there will be no refund. So please check with the weather and your fellow players early. With our smart lighting, lights cannot be cancelled after the booked time and will remain on for the booked hour. 

Introducing electronic payments is an extra cost to the club but it's one that will make all of our lives easier and safer.
