Booking Squash & Table Tennis Courts

Current U of T students and members may book squash courts online at recreation.utoronto.ca. Court bookings are only available online.  Court bookings are open 48 hrs before each time slot.

Court Check-in Procedures

In addition to scanning your TCard or membership card to gain access to the facility, you must ask staff working at the main Athletic Centre turnstiles to check you in for your court booking.  Please note that scanning your membership or TCard alone does not check you in for your court automatically.  Please be on the court within 10 minutes of the start of your court booking time to be counted as present.  Sport & Rec staff may ask to see your TCard or membership card during spot checks.  Detailed instructions are available below.

Court cancellations

If you have booked a court and can no longer attend your booking, please cancel it as far in advance as possible at recreation.utoronto.ca.  Detailed instructions are available below.  Please be considerate of others; cancelling your court bookings as far in advance as possible allows others to book and use the courts.


All members and students are required to check in for their court bookings at the Athletic Centre equipment counter (beside the turnstiles). When scanning your TCard/membership card, ask staff working at the counter to check you in on the computer for your court booking. Individuals who do not check in for their court will be counted as a no-show.. Repeated “no-shows” may result in loss of booking privileges for a period of time. Continued non check-ins will result in longer suspension time periods.

Members are asked to cancel their bookings (online or in person) in advance to allow others to book the courts. Courts cannot be cancelled after the start of the booking time.
