Hall & Court Hire
The Hall is available to hire for a wide variety of private or commercial functions. In 2010 the Lower Hall, kitchen, toilets, and Upper Hall were redecorated, and step free access was added to the Upper and Lower Hall, also a Disabled Toilet was added . The interior is panelled with oak, acquired from a dismantled stately home in Northamptonshire and dating from 1726. It is particularly suitable for Livery Company dinners and meetings.
This Hall is advertised on

Summer 2013 Netball and Tennis Season
The season starts on 29th April 2013 and runs until 27th September 2013
A booking form is below asking for you to put down one slot request only. There will only be one court per team unless there are any slots left over. If there are remaining courts and teams who would like these they will again be allocated on a ballot basis.
The cut off date for the return of these forms is 15TH April 2013,
SLOTS WILL NOT BE ALLOCATED ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED BASIS.
After the cut off date I will look at all the requests and if no one else has requested the slot you have chosen, it will be allocated to you. If there is more than one team asking for a slot it will be decided by ballot.
When this has been done all the teams that failed in the first ballot will be entered in a second ballot for the remaining slots.
Important Additional info for 12-2 bookings
For teams requesting a slot between 12 till 2 there will not be enough slots for everyone to have an individual time so I will work with the league organisers and combine two teams to each slot. If you are already sharing and want to continue sharing with the same team please send ONE form back between you with both team names but one contact to send the invoice to. Unfortunately I have been informed that I am no longer allowed to divide the invoice or accept 2 cheques for one slot as we have to pay a charge for each cheque cashed.
If you are a netball team and you get a block booking and do not need the slot at any time please let your league organisers know so they can hopefully find another team to buy the slot from you.
When I have finished all the allocations I will send a full list to the league organisers for onward transmission to you. If you decide not to take up the slot allocated to your team please let us know and it will be reissued, again on a ballot basis.
Additional Court Info.
The court surface is still in a good condition and I will be ensuring that the corporation continue to maintain it properly. Please let me know as early as possible if you feel the court is getting slippery or breaking up again as it is very difficult for me to judge as I do not play on it as you do.
I remind you that:
“People using the facilities of the court or entering the court do so at their own risk and neither the Corporation of London nor the Rector and Churchwardens or any representative from the church of St Botolph without Bishopsgate accept any responsibility for any injury, damage or loss suffered or incurred by persons using this court.” (Taken from your booking conditions)
