Booking Courts at the UBC Tennis Centre

If you want to book courts at the UBC Tennis Centre, you can either book up to 24 hours in advance for a standard booking, or purchase a Court Booking Card to book up to one week in advance.

How to Book Courts

Standard Bookings: Book up to 24 hours in advance

A player may book a maximum of 2 hours at any one time (1 court for 2 hours). Courts are booked on the hour (although some half hour times may be booked only to work around UBC program schedules). Courts are booked by contacting the UBC Tennis Centre reception either in-person or via phone to book your court.

  • You may book a court no more than 24 hours in advance. (e.g. if you wish to book a court at 10:00AM on Monday, you cannot book prior to 10:00AM on the Sunday before).
  • Call the UBC Tennis Centre or stop by the reception desk to reserve your time slot. You will be required to provide your name and phone number.
  • All court fees must be paid in full at the time of the booking.
  • Players must check-in at the reception desk once they arrive and prior to proceeding on the court.
  • Bookings may not be cancelled and are subject to full payment.

Court Booking Cards: Book up to 7 days in advance

If you would like to book more than 24 hours in advance, Court Booking Cards are available for purchase. These "cards" allow you to make one court booking up to one week in advance. Current Court Booking Cards are valid from September 1 to August 31. Purchase your Court Booking Card in-person at the reception desk.
Cost: $204.75 for the year. All court booking cards expire on August 31 of that year.

  • Booking cards will not be pro-rated at any point during the year. The cost of the Court Booking Card will be the same cost regardless of the day of purchase within the Court Booking Card season.
  • Booking card privileges are non-transferable.
  • A Court Booking Card does not entail discounted court fees, but allows the holder to make advanced bookings outside the regular 24-hour booking rule. Cardholders are still required to pay court fees for every booking.
  • Advance bookings may be made up to seven (7) days in advance. (e.g. To book a court for an hour at 7pm on Sunday you may only book after 7pm on the Sunday prior)
  • Once a court booking has been made you may only book 7 days in advance after your scheduled court time. (e.g. If you are scheduled to play Sunday 7-8pm you may only book for the next Sunday after your scheduled court time ends at 8pm.)
  • A player may only book a maximum of 2 hours at any one time (1 court for 2 hours). Courts are booked on the hour, although some half hour times may be booked but ONLY to work around UBC Program Schedules.
  • All court fees must be paid in full at the time of booking.
  • A cardholder cannot book a court or cancel a court, in someone else’s name.
  • If the person who has booked a court is unable to play, they must inform the Centre staff 24 hours prior to the booking time to cancel the court. The cancelled court fee will be credited back to the cardholder's Tennis Centre account as long as the cancellation is communicated at least 24 hours prior to the court time. Substitutes for court bookers are not permitted and will result in the cardholder losing his/her advanced booking privilege for 7 days.
  • Court cancellations within 24 hours are non-refundable and will result in the full charge (the cost of the court) to the booker.
  • Each card holder in a party may bring up to 3 non-card holders for their respective court booking.
