Hi,

Thanks for raising this guys, Played and our customers are very supportive
of this.

It is essential to the end user experience that this is available.
Retention is key to success, and without the ability for existing members
to book through open data powered tools then it makes it harder than it
should be for those people to be and remain active.

Thanks
