How to Book a Cage Rental

  1. Rentals can be requested 72 hours (3 days) prior to the requested start time (e.g. if you would like to book a cage starting at 4:30pm on Thursday, you can book the cage as of Monday at 4:30pm).
  2. All bookings will occur in 60-minute fixed time slots.
  3. Payment is required in order to reserve the cage. We accept credit card (Visa or Mastercard) payments over the phone, or we can charge to a credit card linked to a client’s UBC Recreation profile.
  4. The HitTrax machine must be requested at the time of booking or at least 24hrs prior to the start of the booking. The HitTrax machine is an additional fee and a second payment will be required for the additional charge.
    • Cages 1-3 will automatically include the pitching machine with the rental and will be included in the fee.
    • Cage 4 does not have any rental equipment available (pitching machine or HitTrax machine) so it is available for slo-pitch.
  5. No cancellations/changes once the cage rental has been booked and paid for (this includes changes to the date/time).
    • A credit to account will only be provided in the case of a medical injury where a doctor’s note can be provided.
  6. Advance reservation is required. 

Rentals can be requested by calling 604-822-5770 or by emailing itc.info@ubc.ca for booking requests.
