User Story: Tower Hamlets Tennis**

About Tower Hamlets TTHTennis

Tower Hamlets Tennis is a social enterprise that aims to provide accessible, affordable and enjoyable tennis to local communities. They offer a range of courses and court bookings in several locations around London.

The need

Before BookingBug, the company had no way of monitoring or managing the various courts they offered. This meant that many of the courts would be being used for free, and as such resulted in the company experiencing losses.

The solution

Tower Hamlets Tennis has been using BookingBug to book their services for over a year. The booking is done through a customised widget that seamlessly integrates with the rest of their site. This makes the user experience much more enjoyable and the booking, and therefore the business much more efficient. The fact that Tower Hamlets Tennis can also take payments online means they no longer experience losses.

The results

“BookingBug has revolutionised access to tennis in the Borough”.

BookingBug has made the user experience of Tower Hamlets Tennis much more enjoyable, through making the booking process easier and therefore the business much more efficient.

“BookingBug is the engine room of our business. It isn’t just an online scheduling tool; it’s customer engagement, it’s business reporting, it’s data. It has absolutely transformed the accessibility to tennis in the area. Our research showed there was quite a big gap between BookingBug and the other systems out there; it was the only option available that was flexible and customisable enough to meet all our needs,”*said Peter Smith, from Tower Hamlets Tennis.*
