What is gate access technology? 

Gate access technology allows venues to control access to their courts remotely. This allows managers to: 

  • Open up their courts to new and wider audiences
  • Allow instant payment for court bookings
  • Secure their facilities
  • Save money

Gate access systems are an economic way to take bookings and payments because they remove the need for on-site staff. They can even control your floodlights, so there’s no need for players to buy tokens or use meters. 

Please speak to your local Participation Development Partner (PDP) or email GateAccess@LTA.org.uk for more details.  

We have two different gate access systems available for venues with or without a power supply – both of which link to the ClubSpark booking platform to provide a seamless customer journey for club members, and to LTA Rally for pay-and play-bookers.
