How do I access the courts using the PIN security System?


Access to the courts is controlled by a Personal Identification Number (PIN) security system.

A PIN is automatically issued to players when they make an initial booking via SMS and email (booking confirmation & receipt).

Players can use the same PIN for all subsequent bookings.

How to use your PIN for evening play

Common scenario: say for instance you have an 8pm booking, the lights are ON and players from the earlier booking open the gate for you, however you don’t enter your PIN, the lights will then switch off 15 minutes later at 8:15pm. If the lights switch off during play you will need to re-enter your PIN and wait an additional 10 minutes for the lights to activate.

IMPORTANT: IF YOU HAVE AN EVENING BOOKING the Lights will switch OFF 15 minutes after your booking ends. Your unique PIN turns the lights ON or KEEPS the lights ON (this is an energy saving feature). You must enter your PIN correctly even if the lights are already ON before you enter the court. You can enter your PIN 10 minutes before your booking commences.

PIN Activation
1. To access the court(s) at your booked time, simply enter your PIN into the key pads located at the gate to each court. NOTE: A PIN will only work when a booking has been made
2. Let players in your group know what PIN to use
3. A PIN will start working 10 minutes before a booking commences – for tennis court(s), bathroom and (kitchenette access at Glebe)
4. A PIN will cease to work 15 minutes after a booking ends – of course you can always exit a court and bathrooms at anytime, but you won’t be able to re-enter the court or bathrooms
