Booking a Tennis Court
The online GPHC booking system enables members to book tennis courts at any time that they are not being used for competition, coaching or other organized events. All court bookings must be made via this online booking system. Court bookings are mandatory for members.
Members may book to play with a non-member guest and will incur a guest fee of $15.00 per adult & $5.00 per junior/student, which is payable at the time of booking. Non-members may book tennis court 7 within certain time restrictions (please refer below for the available times) which are controlled by the booking system.
