Court Booking Update

Please be advised that as of September 1, 2023, there will be an adjustment to the court booking system to improve the user experience. The updated booking option will appear starting on September 1, 2023 to allow for 2-day advance booking of courts, with the first implementation of this booking system applying to bookings for September 5, 2023. Please be advised that the old court booking system will still appear at this time but will be phased out by Tuesday, September 5, 2023.

The revised booking system will enable individuals to check availability between courts quickly and prevent individuals from booking more than one court per day as follows:

  • Each tennis, table tennis and badminton booking will only have one booking page.
  • This change does not apply to squash court bookings, which will have American and English court options, listed within the booking page as tabs.

If you have any questions, please reach out to our Customer and Membership Services kiosk or email sportandrec@utoronto.ca
