Court Booking


  • The names of both players must appear on the booking sheet. This is done by clicking on the Manage button on the booking sheet and by selecting your partner's name from the drop-down menu. It is only where you are playing solo that a second name is not needed. (This is all for track and trace purposes and also to allow us to check that a player is observing the single match in a day protocol.
  • While the Covid-19 virus remains all members must confirm their health status by completing the Health Declaration Form within the 24 hours prior to using the court. This 'form' can be found on the top left of the booking sheet once you are logged in.
  • Due to Covid-19, for the forseeable future we will not be able to allow visitors to the club. 
  • Courts can no longer be booked at the computer terminal at the club.

On-line Booking:

Members with internet access can book courts up to 4 days in advance from 8:00 p.m.. You will need a username and password and these are provided via Highfield Squash Committee and are unique to each member. You will also be provided with a key fob that will allow you to book a court from the terminal located in the squash club. This fob is also used to confirm your booking once you arrive at the club and to turn on the lights. Members are reminded that both the fob and the PIN are for their use only and must not be given to others. Members may book one court per day and can use their fobs to book a second court only when the first time slot has expired.

Peak times: (not currently in place but will be re-instated once the club returns to being busy)
To take into account the times when the courts are busiest, peak times from September 1st to May 31st are deemed from 12:00-14:00 Monday to Friday and 17:00-21:00 Monday to Friday. These time slots are also clearly highlighted on the online booking and from time to time there may be restrictions in place during these times. Such restrictions are usually in relation to bringing visitors or group coaching.

You can check out our visitors policy here.

Double booking:
Double bookings (members playing another member over two courts) will be discontinued once the club returns to being busy. Please note, however, that under Covid-19 protocols you should play only once in the day.

Light Tokens:
You activate the lights for your match by using your key fob and each 40 minute match will use two of your light tokens (1 token = 20 mins).  Tokens cost €54 for 40, €22 for 16 or €12 for 8 and can be bought on-line only.

Court Confirmation:
Please remember to confirm your court either before or immediately after you play. You should not confirm a court you have not used. If not using a court please cancel and free up for other member to use.

Booking Credits:
When you book a court you use up two of your booking credits. These credits are free and are automatically refunded when you confirm your use of the court at the court-side terminal using your key fob.  If you do not 'confirm'  you will lose those credits and you will  eventually be unable to book. This is to discourage 'no shows'. Courts can be cancelled without penalty before the start time of the match without loss of creditsCourts can be swapped any time without penalty.

Should your booking credits fall and you are no longer able to book as far in advance as you like (or not at all if they go to zero) this will have been due to your failure to confirm your booked courts. You can now get lost credits restored and topped up to the original 14 credits by buying them back here at a cost of €10. Should you need to repeat that process and buy back again there will be a delay of one week.

Should you prefer to use cash to buy tokens then you will need to pay another member to buy them on-line for you.
