I think that right now you are experiencing high difficulty in getting the courts because the coaches from Tampiness SH are migrating to Bedok SH due to the closure of that place. So... other alternative would be to book else where.

hmmm.... this should not be accepted. (ie. "without valid reason") No one is above the free spirit of CCs. Money and time wasted on all parties.
"reserved/hold some slots for their staff sometimes without valid reason."

For Sport Councils & CC especially during examination period you will wonder why there's a school CCA activities in the CC & SSC courts,bcoz they used their school hall for examination purpose, even though the Canberra Sec School got 5 badminton courts but they booked Yishun SSC hall that consists of 4 courts only.
I just guess that they got higher priorities because they are under MOE.Ya they (CC & SCC) got valid reason compare to SAFRA & HomeTeam at Balestier.

went down to siglap cc this afternoon and saw that 22 feb's slot has been booked for archery(again) and 29 feb's has been booked for MAEL/MLAE or some funny thing like that.
as of now, it seems that the friday night slots are really hard to get, no matter which courts we're talking about.
ill try to get courts for tuesdays from 730-930pm, since that seems to be the next most popular slot for most of the ppl here. if that fails as well then we might have to settle for a weekend afternoon slot.

hi i am interested joining a group in the east. do you have schedule?
02-10-2008, 02:05 AM #99
checked with the people over at siglap cc, and nearly every day of the week from 25feb-2mar has already been booked, not for badminton, but by the cc committee themselves, for some gathering(i think they said something about grassroots). so for that week, our only hope appears to be the sports hall itself
the night slots for 18-24feb are fully booked as well, with the exception of 1 court from 830-930pm, on monday.
ill carry on trying to get courts for the month of march, once they allow booking. top of the list would be friday nights and tuesday nights(hopefully it can even become a twice-a-week affair). if both are unavailable, then will have to settle for courts elsewhere i guess
btw, if anyone here books the court online, let me know so that i can pop by in person to get the second one. only 1 out of 2 courts are available for online booking.

for safra courts
there is a kind of booking call block booking , where u can book the badmintons courts for the entire month for the same particular day - meaning for month of march u can book all 4 fridays for the month of march, need 5-6 safra membership cards though.
I am not sure if this thing booking is still around, was told by the badminton store boss in tpy safra that there is this kind of booking many yrs back. Need to fill in some form. I nv try before ( not safra member)... safra online booking is only limited to 1 court. Not experienced in safra courts as my friend do the booking.
for SSC courts
quite hard to get them, used to be 1wk booking on every tuesday 7am, now booking can be done every 2weeks in advance online. Was told by tampines sport hall auntie that ppl quene 5am outside to book courts... I used to wake up 6am in the morning every tuesday and prepare to book online, logging in @0659 and wait for the clk to strike 0700... lol
for cc courts
quite easy to book online, tampines have like 5-6 cc, but usually cc events are the main culprits for been unable to book the halls.
tuesday would be easier to book courts as ppl usually play on fridays as most are working adults and sat they can sleep late

unfortunately i cant find any online booking for this place, so availability of courts is unknown as well if i remember correctly there r 12 courts?according to the calendar of events it seems that it is still in operation (surprising, tout they gonna demolish it) as they r still having events in Dec 07.
