Individual sports practice
Sports membership owners can reserve facilities for individual sports practice without the supervision of a trainer.
You can use your sports membership to reserve facilities for a maximum of one hour. To make a reservation, please send an e- mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org. This mailbox won't be read during the weekend.
Mention the following data in your e-mail:
- your name
- names of fellow sporters (who must also have sports membership);
- sport you want to practice
- the precise time you want to reserve the facility
The booking will only be valid once an e-mail confirmation has been sent by the USC.
All participants need to have a valid membership.
Always check in before the booking at our front desk.
Canceling a booking
The Sports Centre has limited space available. It;s a shame when a hall is booked and no one shows up. Others sporters could've used that hall. If you make a booking you can cancel it without any cost up to 24 hours before the booking through either mail, phone or at our front desk. If you cancel the booking too late or don't cancel it at all a €5,- fine will be given which has to be paid before you can use the facilities of the Sports Centre again, this includes regular use. NB: this rule doesn't apply to tennis court bookings.

Rules of use for new sports fields
Use of fields
- Enter the fields only by way of the entrance gate(s) and not by climbing over the fence. Only walk on the paved pathways when accessing the fields. This avoids sand and other organic materials being brought onto the fields.
- Make sure the soles of your shoes are free of mud, grass and other matter.
- Access to the fields is restricted to players, supervisors, trainers and referees only. Only the permitted footwear may be worn. Spectators and other visitors are not allowed onto the fields.
- Food and chewing gum is not permitted on the field. Smoking and glassware are strictly prohibited.
- If the ball should go over the fence during the game, ask a spectator to return it to you. Do not walk through the grass and mud to retrieve it. Only use the entrance gates and do not climb over the fence.
- Use the brushes and mats for cleaning your shoes before entering the field.
- Sports clothing must always been worn during sporting activities.
Use of equipment
Only the goals provided may be used. Return the folding and moveable goals to their proper place after use. Avoid dragging goals over the artificial grass and always use two people to carry them. Bicycles and other vehicles are not permitted on the fields.
- Shoes with steel or aluminium studs are not permitted on the football, rugby and hockey fields.
- Spikes and shoes with flat soles are not permitted on the football and rugby field.
- Shoes with flat soles are permitted on the hockey field.
The fields cannot be used in the winter period if:
- there is snow on the field. The snow must first melt of its own accord
- there is ice on the field (artificial grass fibres will break off)
- the temperature is below -10 C
- it has started to thaw, but the underlying frost layer has not yet disappeared
