Book a Court has contributed to a major change in tennis through improved access to more than 50% of local tennis clubs. The ACT has been at the vanguard of this technology, local clubs currently accounting for 15% of all Book a Court clubs nationally and nearly 21% of all bookings. The system supported 11,500 local bookings across 2017/18.
Piloted initially in the ACT and using local contractors, Book a Court supports Tennis ACT and community clubs to conduct collective marketing campaigns to help maximise participation, increasing court occupancy and associated revenues. A summer campaign witnessed 7103 bookings from 1146 unique players across 14 clubs – 80% of these players were not members of a tennis club.
