New Arrangements for the Booking and Use of Leisure Facilities
 
(I) Cancellation of the Standby Arrangement for Soccer Pitches

The standby arrangement for soccer pitches was cancelled on a trial basis from 18 June to 17 December 2013. During the trial period, the "no-show" rate of individual bookings for soccer pitches dropped significantly while there was no noticeable increase in the rate of soccer pitches being left unused. In view of these, the standby arrangement for soccer pitches has been formally cancelled with effect from 18 December 2013 after the end of the six-month trial period.

(III) Booking quota of leisure and sports facilities for individual users to be tightened (with effective from 3 April 2014)

With effective from 3 April 2014, the booking quota of fee-charging facilities at peak hours for individual users will be restricted to two hours per day for the same type of facility at all venues. After the implementation of the new arrangement, booking quota for individual users will apply to the same type of facility at all venues on the same day.

Starting from 25 March 2014, individual hirers will be subject to the new quota arrangement when booking popular leisure and sports facilities for use on or after 3 April.  Facilities affected by the revised quota system include badminton courts, basketball courts, volleyball courts, tennis courts, table tennis tables and activity rooms.  Some examples of the same type of facility are listed as below:

  • Activity Rooms: include activity rooms and dance rooms
  • Snooker Tables: include American Pool tables, billiard tables and carom table
  • Turf Pitches: include natural turf pitches and artificial turf pitches
  • Rugby Pitches: include natural turf pitches and artificial turf pitches

An example showing the new quota arrangement:
An individual user can make two-hour bookings for using the tennis courts at Victoria Park and Shek Kip Mei Park during peak hours on the same day when using the facilities on or before 2 April 2014. Under the new quota arrangement, if an individual has already booked a two-hour session at a Victoria Park tennis court during peak times, he or she will not be able to book another peak-hour session of tennis court on the same day through the Leisure Link System.

Facilities that have spare capacity at peak hours,  such as squash courts, golf driving ranges, archery facilities, sport climbing wall and rope course facilities at Tuen Mun Recreation and Sports Centre, and holiday camps. will not be affected after the implementation of new quota arrangement.  As the facility provision during off-peak times is able to meet the public demand in general, the daily quota for bookings during off-peak times will remain unchanged.

Similar to the current arrangement, reallocated sessions would be counted towards the individual’s quota.
