Booking system status update

Friday 7 January, 2022

As you know we made a decision to change to a new booking system in mid-December 2021. We always knew there would be challenges associated with moving from a system we had used for over 20 years to a new system and some of you have experienced issues with doing some of the things you were able to do prior to the switchover. 
 
We can assure you that we are working as fast as we can to resolve everything and that (once resolved) the new system will provide a significantly improved service to all members and users of the Sports Village. In the meantime we have increased staff levels in the areas of the business where we need more staff to support you to book and use activities with us (including reception).

Below are the known issues to us and are already in the workflow to get resolved.  If your issue is listed below then there is no need to contact us, however if your issues it not listed below then please feel free to contact us on sports.reception@herts.ac.uk.
