court usage & booking
Court booking is prioritised for club members.
If you are not a member, you can contact our Membership Secretary, Dawn Presland (firstname.lastname@example.org / 07956 727132) to see if it is possible for her to arrange for you to hire a court.

Bovey Tracey Lawn Tennis Club has three all-weather floodlit courts. Court bookings should be made through the Clubspark booking system website – you will need to set up an account if you are using it for the first time. Once registered, you’ll be able to see when the courts are available for booking.
As a member you will be given the entrance code for the locks on the gate and clubhouse. Tokens for the lights (£1 for 30 minutes) can be purchased from head coach Ryan Bougourd or at the Spar shop in town (click here for directions).
Visitors must be accompanied by a current member and charges for visitors can be found out the Membership page.
Generally speaking there will always be one court available (apart from Saturday mornings, and during Club Play on Monday evenings, Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings). Please note Ryan has the use of 1 court at all times (exception Friday mornings from 11am).
Junior members under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, and all visitors must sign the visitors’ book in the clubhouse, for insurance purposes. Any visitor’s fee should be put in the tin on the floor in the clubhouse, by the noticeboard.
There are plenty of opportunities for social play, with an active group from 9am – 11am weekdays. If the courts are being used outside these times, whether for tournaments, junior matches or league matches, details will be posted on the Club noticeboard.
Using the covered court
It looks amazing, but we must look after it. A few golden rules to keep the surface good:
Only non-marking tennis/squash shoes to be worn and absolutely no chewing gum, glass tumblers or bottles on court. During the summer, temperatures may get high so damage to the surface could be caused. If black marks start to appear on the surface, it is important to cease playing immediately and report it to a committee member as the court will have to be closed temporarily.
Thank you and enjoy!
