It’s 2021 and your members are looking for mobile court booking. Let’s take a look at the key features to get your club the best experience.

Ease of Use is key for members

This is where it all begins and with lots of members and varying degrees of tech savviness, it’s got to be easy.  If you have 10+ activities, such as Tennis, Pickleball, Squash, Badminton and more then you’re going to want an intuitive menu. In the case of GameTime we use a horizontal sliding menu to allow users to glide between sports.

 

Next up, can the user see all the courts at a quick glance or do they need to scroll and select more buttons?  With GameTime we can display 8 courts across a mobile screen without scrolling sideways. We’ve also removed player names in the mobile version so that people can see all the bookings with one glance without horizontal scrolling, and therefore book as quickly as possible.

Booking Rules

Next let’s ensure the proper booking rules are enforced. For example;  players may only book 7  days in advance and have a maximum of 3 bookings per week. Naturally you can change the number booking rules to suit your club.

The rule system is custom built by GameTime, ensuring that no member books too far in advance or book more than their allotment.  The only typical exception to the booking rules are; “Walk-ons” which are often to bypass the quota rule should you decide to allow this.

Ball machines
A simple on/off switch allows you to enable members to book with a ball machine. In addition ball machines can be set to be bookable only at specific times or on specific courts. Furthermore you can apply fee’s to ball machines which can be billed to the players account.

Guests

Allowing guests to be booked on the mobile app should also be ensured. With a single tap, guests can be booked on GameTime.
Guest fees can be applied and all fees sent to the members account.  Guests can be easily toggled on/off in the administrator side of GameTime.

 

Fee’s

Court booking fees may be charged via the desktop & mobile version. For example:

  • Court fees

  • Guest fees

  • Ball machine fees

  • Late Cancellation charges

  • No show fee’s

Any type of fee can be charged for using the Mobile or Desktop version. All of these feecourt ‘s are charged to the members’ account and can be exported to your accounting system: Jonas, Quickbooks, Northstar, etc.

Calendar Reminders

Once the court is booked, an automatic Calendar ICS file is sent with the email confirmations to all players. This will automatically add the booking to your mobile Calendar, ensuring no members forget about their bookings.

Checking-in

Once members arrive at the club, they may check-in to their court using the mobile app. This also ensures covid touch free method compared to checking in at the club kiosk.  Check-ins fee’s may also be applied if you want.

For Instructors, they may perform class attendance by check members into classes directly from their phone.  Simple tap the classes linked which loads today’s classes, click the class, then each person who is present. Attendance can be done from anywhere with a phone, whether you’re on court, in a studio or on a sailing boat.

Class & Event Registration

Members can convenientently register for classes using their phone. Whether it’s kids tennis classes or cardio tennis, members can easily view all the classes available in the club and  register from whereever they are.

Integration
For larger clubs GameTime’s mobile version will work seamlessly within the clubs  app. Members start with the Club’s app, then link to “Online court booking” or “GameTime” to access the booking system.

There you have the top 10 things to ensure you have on your mobile booking system.
