WHLTC Court Bookings Calendar

We use a Google Calendar to manage bookings for our two tennis courts. The Court Bookings Calendar can be viewed by all signed-in members of the Hoathly Hub. However, it is password-protected and can only be edited by members of WHLTC.

The Court Bookings Calendar is shown on the WHLTC microSite to make it easy for you to check when a court is available and to open Google Calendar to add, change or delete bookings. You do not have to use the microSite to access the Calendar, you can use Google Calendar directly if you prefer, but the instructions below assume you are accessing it from the microSite.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • A court can be booked for 1 or more half-hour slots, beginning on the hour or half-hour.
  • Each booking can be for a maximum of 2 hours.
  • Make a separate booking for each court please.
  • Do not set reminders if you are using the shared WHLTC account - they will not come to you!
  • Avoid changing any of the settings of the shared WHLTC account.
  • Remember to click the Refresh icon to see up-to-date bookings.

Once this has been done, you can add the Court Bookings Calendar by typing tennis@HoathlyHub.info in the box below the Other calendars heading. Alternatively, the first time you access the Court Bookings Calendar from the microSite you will be asked if you wish to add tennis@hoathlyhub.info. Choose Yes, add this calendar.

The Court Bookings Calendar will then appear in your list of Other calendars - you can switch it on and off by clicking on it.
