Ratings and Reviews
Best app to book tennis courts!
Great app, easy to use to book tennis courts. Through this app I found new tennis courts around my area, so it’s great to play at different courts for variation. Online payment also super easy and straight-forward. Only downside is the impossibility to change bookings, even if you want to change in advance. With an online ability to reserve and pay, you could also offer to change bookings (in a similar way to restaurant booking apps), even if you were to apply some restrictions (i.e. only allow to change up to 24h before the booking starts). Other than that, love the app!! :-)
Excellent customer service, fast resolutions & convenient
I’ve found it very easy to book tennis courts through this app. There were some initial problems with it freezing when I was about to pay for the court a few months ago, but a phone call to their helpline always solved the problem. Their customer service is the best I’ve ever encountered & they are so quick to confirm bookings.
The only recommendation I would make is that the app could show the number of the tennis court we are booked on - I believe the developers are working on including this soon.
Quick and easy to use
I’ve used this app for several months now. I’ve always found it to be quick and easy to find and pay for a local 5aside football pitch.
