COVID-19 Change: Perk Passes are not currently available for purchase. Current pass holders have been updated on when the Perk Pass program resumes.

If you would like to book courts up to 7 days in advance, a UBC Tennis Centre Perk Pass is available for purchase. The Perk Pass allows you to make one court booking up to one week in advance and also provides you with additional perks.

Please Note:

  • No physical card/pass will be issued; a corresponding pass will be added to your UBC Recreation profile enabling advanced reservations.
  • To book courts outside of a 24 hour period, please call the front desk at 604-822-2505. You will not be able to book online outside of 24 hours.

  • Ability to cancel the booking as long as notice is given at least 24 hours prior to the start of the booking.
  • 50% off ball machine rentals.

  • The Perk Pass will not be pro-rated at any point. The cost of the Perk Pass will be the same cost regardless of the date of purchase within each Perk Pass term.
  • Perk Pass privileges are non-transferable.
  • A Perk Pass does not entail discounted court fees, but allows the holder to make advanced bookings outside the regular 24-hour booking policy. Perk Pass holders are still required to pay court fees for every booking.
  • Advance bookings may be made up to seven (7) days in advance. (e.g. To book a court for an hour at 7pm on Sunday you may only book after 7pm on the Sunday prior)
  • Only one advanced booking can be made at any given time. Once a court booking has been made you may only book 7 days in advance after your scheduled court time. (e.g. If you are scheduled to play Sunday 7-8pm you may only book for the next Sunday after your scheduled court time ends at 8pm.)
  • A player may only book a maximum of 2 hours at any one time (1 court for 2 hours). Courts are booked on the hour, although some half hour times may be booked but ONLY to work around UBC Program schedules.
  • All court fees must be paid in full at the time of booking. Courts cannot be reserved until they have been paid for.
  • A Perk Pass holder cannot book a court or cancel a court in someone else’s name.
  • If the Perk Pass holder has booked a court and is unable to play, they must inform the Centre Operations Staff 24 hours prior to the booking time to cancel the court. Notification can be provided by email or phone. The cancelled court fee will be credited back to the Perk Pass holder's Tennis Centre account as long as the cancellation is communicated at least 24 hours prior to the court time.
  • Substitutes are not permitted and will result in the Perk Pass holder losing his/her advanced booking privilege for 7 days.
  • Court cancellations within 24 hours are non-refundable and will result in the full charge (the cost of the court) to the booker.
  • Each Perk Pass holder in a party may bring up to 3 non-pass holders for their respective court booking.
  • The Tennis Centre staff will verify your Perk Pass on account before booking the ball machine. You will receive the discounted rate at the time of booking. The ball machine rental is an additional charge on top of the court fees.
