No More Waiting for a Court Date: ibooka provides Online reservations systems for local Tennis

What can be more frustrating ? You and your tennis partner arrange with spouses that you will play Tennis after work only to call to book and not get through or if you do get through, find there is a 2 hour wait for the courts, or you arrange with your 3 doubles colleagues to play at 8pm on Thursday only to find, when you call up to make a reservation, that they only have courts at 7pm available. What do you do? take a chance that your three colleagues are free at 7pm ? hang up and call each of them to check, then call back and hope the 7pm slot has not gone ?

This dilemma is faced by tennis and squash players up and down the country, day after day. So why donít tennis clubs have online reservation systems that their members could use ? By offering online bookings/reservations members could see, on the internet, the available time slots before they book. The reservations secretary would not have to take calls to book courts each and every evening and everybody saves money (on wasted phone calls), saves time and enjoys the type of professional service that seems to only be expected from the largest companies.

To offer a booking and reservation system to members, non-members and people wanting to book the clubhouse for a tournament or party across the internet has many advantages, it frees up staff, you never miss a call from someone wanting to book a court, clubs and companies can take bookings when they are closed, 24 hours a day and it is great for organising tournament play. However, online reservations systems are usually expensive, need specialised IT staff, need investments in computer equipment and take too long to implement when all people want to do is focus on what they know and have that unique experience in - Tennis !.

ibooka Limited have changed this paradigm and are supplying hosted online (internet) booking and reservation systems on a "pennies-per-booking" basis to companies, clubs and organisations around the world. Tennis Clubs around the world are using ibooka to provide a much improved service to their members and help boost revenue at the clubs.

More tournaments can be arranged with ibooka, more courts booked, more potential members converted to members and you can even take payments across the internet. It is incredibly easy to use, you donít buy any new computer equipment, no new software, you donít even need to "backup" the system, in fact all you do is enjoy the benefits that ibooka brings to the tennis or squash club. You only pay for actual bookings and even then only pennies for each one.
