Rink Booking


Here is our Bowls Club Off-Site Rink Booking System.  From 24th July we have 4 rinks per session and 4 sessions each day: these are 10:00 – 12:00; 12:30 – 2.30; 3.00 – 5.00 and 5:30 – 7.30. Initially we ask that you do not book more than 3 sessions in a week to give all that want to play a chance to play – (once we see how this pans out we will hopefully be able to relax this). 

The booking calendar has been set up such that any attempt to book overlapping periods on a specific rink or in the changeover periods will not be allowed. If the entries are too difficult to read then you can change the view being shown from the drop down menu immediately to the left of the blue button with three white bars.

Members are allowed to ADD bookings but NOT TO MODIFY OR DELETE entries.  {Note this is a change because it was too easy to inadvertently change already existing bookings}

To Modify or Delete any entries, have any difficulties, require advice  or just want to make comments on the system, then please contact Paul Sims 07900 638229 or simspaul5@gmail.com.

Instructions to book a rink are given below the calendar.


Instructions to book a Rink.

Step 1.  There are a number of different display modes in the calendar (Tabs at the top of the calendar) but leave it in the default ‘4-Days’ view – it should show the current week.  If you want a different week go to the week indicated, click on the arrow at the right hand side and it should bring up a normal date calendar – choose the date you want and that week should now be shown.  
Step 2. Click in the calendar – preferably on the day/time slot that you are interested in booking a rink but not on an existing entry; this will bring up a separate dialogue box.
In that box (ignore/delete anything that may already be offered) then:
– click in the Title box and enter Rink Number you are interested in booking, the type of booking viz. Singles or Pairs and names e.g. Rink 1: Singles – Sims v Smart; Rink 3: Singles – Brown v Ralphs or Rink 2: Pairs – Smart, Sims, Brown, Ralphs
– select the day and the time for the rink that you want to book from the dropdown options (make sure the times correspond to one of the daily sessions (viz: 10:00 – 12:00; 12:30 – 2.30; 3.00 – 5.00 ; 5:30 – 7.30)
– move down to the Calendar section and in the box delete or ignore anything shown, then click in that box to bring up the three rink options (shown above); click on the Rink No. you are booking from the four options.  {Note: Even though you may already have put the Rink Number in the Title box above, it is necessary to select the correct rink here.}
– then move down to the Contact Name Box and enter a Name and, optionally, a phone number or e-mail.
To aid any requirement for potential Track & Trace please enter the names of all players on your rink.
If your entry is questioned by the system – please check everything that you have entered carefully and amend accordingly.
Step 3. Finally click on the green SAVE button at the top right of the box to save the entry. The details you have just entered should then be shown in the calendar!
