Blue Gum Park TC have installed Tennis Australia’s Book-a-Court technology with a view to improve community access to court hire and through the benefits and convenience of online court bookings and keyless entry.

The online court booking system, which provides online payment, keyless entry and around-the-clock court access via pin pad technology, is available to everyone who enjoys a hit of tennis. Court bookings are easily accessed via the club’s website, where payment is taken in exchange for a unique booking pin provided for pin-pad use at the tennis club gate.

The club will join more than twenty venues across metropolitan and regional Western Australia, who have already made the move to improve court hire accessibility to the wider community.

The project was funded in part by the Tennis Australia National Court Rebate (NCR) scheme, in addition to a Federal Government grant made available through the Sport Aus Community Infrastructure Grant scheme which supports small to medium scale projects.

The online booking system is available to both members and non-members, with a primary focus of encouraging greater accessibility and convenience to members of the local community.

Blue Gum Park Tennis Club President Colin Lorrimar says the club were looking for ways to increase court accessibility without adding to the workload of the clubs dedicated volunteers.

‘We’ve been pleased with the early results which are showing increased bookings from non-members,’

‘The biggest factor impacting the increase in court use, is the availability of court hour outside of the clubs normal operating hours,’

‘It’s the earlier and later court hire bookings that are making the biggest impact to increased court hire,’ Lorrimar said.

Tennis West CEO Michael Roberts, says that Book-a-Court technology is continuing to prove itself as a welcomed game changer for clubs, by helping to remove the traditional barriers to court accessibility.

‘Book-a-Court launched in 2017 and it continues to prove itself as a great tool in removing the barriers usually associated with court accessibility,’

“The platform meets the needs of the modern day consumer and provides a convenient, easy, online platform to book and access their local courts. Club administrative burdens are reduced significantly and pleasingly, clubs continue to report on increase court hire revenue,” Roberts said.
