Digital reservation system / ClubApp

Important to know is that every time you want to play tennis, you have to use our digital reservation system (the terminal on the right side of the hallway leading to the indoor courts): 

  1. Either to confirm a prior reservation made online or through our ClubApp;
  2. In order to book a court at the club ‘on the spot’.

Not using the digital reservation system before you use our courts, enables other members to book your court instead! Only members who have booked/confirmed a court through our digital reservation system have the right to play...
