Badminton and short tennis

Booking

Book a court

You can book a court online, by phone or when you visit Riverside. You will need to pay when you make your booking.

All bookings start on the hour, and last for 55 minutes. The last booking you can make is one hour before closing.

You can book a court:

  • ten days in advance if you have a monthly membership (you can only book one court per membership, per day)
  • seven days in advance if you have a Leisure Plus card
  • two days in advance if you do not have a membership or Leisure Plus card (by phone or in person only)

If you no longer want to use the sport hall, you need to cancel at least 24 hours before you are due to use it. We will charge you the full amount if you do not cancel in time, or if you do not attend.

We only hold badminton and short tennis sessions during Essex County Council school term time.
