Complaint: DHAC charges my credit card without my authorization. They consider it a penalty for "un-proper" tennis court use even though they failed to provide such rules on my multiple requests. Each time I tried to discuss those rules they come up with new rules that a never in writing. Based on the discussions, they overcharged me multiple times, but I discovered it only on 12/2/2012. In previous years if somebody was staying on the court longer, an employee would come over and ask if they want to continue playing and pay for it or prefer to leave. If parties choose to stay, later one receives booking email notification with charged amount. I haven't heard any complains against that policy. Starting from Labor Day of 2012 they started charging without notifying charged parties. Booking notifications are not being sent either. Only if one checks the account later one can see those charges. They claim that it's even legitimate to double charge a court, i.e. if a friend of yours booked it, but can't make it on time and allows you to play longer both parties should be charged for that time. In addition to that, they falsely claim that I brought 2 guests that didn't pay guest fee. In 10 years of my membership in that club I never done that and they failed to provide any proof to the opposite.
Desired Settlement: Since they do this to many members of the club I want them to refund all members where they applied "penalty charges". I want them to publish club policy on "penalty charges" and notify each new and existing member of that policy. I want an apology for false claim about guests that I brought without guest fees.
To whom it may concern:
I have reviewed the response submitted by the business and have determined that the response does not satisfy or resolve my issues and/or concerns in reference to complaint.
