Why do I need to wear proper tennis shoes?
- All modern ‘Hard Court Tennis Shoes’ are designed to be non-marking regardless of the colour of the sole and provide the necessary support and comfort you need.
- Over the past 20 years we have seen a gradual movement away from purpose specific shoes to all purpose shoes aka ‘cross trainers/runners’. Now cross trainers and runners may seem the most logical choice for everyday recreational use (taking a stroll, jogging or going to the gym) but on a tennis court they lack the necessary lateral support (quick successions of stopping & starting, moving side to side forwards and backwards) that is placed on the body during general play . One other aspect of cross trainers/runners is their soles are mostly contain black carbon which is the cause of unsightly scuffs marks over the tennis courts.
- The management at Jensen’s kindly ask all players to respect the shoe policy that is in place at Prince Alfred Park – Only non marking soles permitted on courts to ensure the courts remain relatively free from unsightly scuff marks.
- Shoes can be hired or purchased from the Pro-Shop.
- The Management and Staff Thank You for your cooperation.
I can’t access the court using my PIN
- Check that you are entering the PIN at the correct time. The PIN does not activate until 10 minutes before a booking commences.
- Call the office on 9698-9451
The lights have gone out during my booking period?
- The lights will deactivate if a PIN has not been entered into the keypad. This may happen if the gate has been left open or another player has opened the gate for you.
- To reactivate the lights re-enter your PIN in the keypad. The system takes into account a 10 minute cool down period for the lights before they come on again. Expect a 10-15 minute wait.
