Tennis Court Rules

Badges must be displayed

All tennis players (including visitors) must display their badges on the board during play. While playing, players may not block a subsequent period with their (or another member’s) badge.

Doubles have priority

When courts are busy, singles players should invite, or allow 2 others, to join them.

Proper dress is required

Players are expected to wear proper tennis outfits, with a white shirt or blouse and white socks. Players must wear proper flat-sole tennis shoes on clay courts.

Clay courts must be ‘dragged’ after play

Players are required to maintain the clay courts by ‘dragging’ them and, if necessary, watering them after play.
In addition, when the weather is dry and hot, please also water the court before you play if there has been nobody playing immediately before you.

Clay courts must be protected after heavy rain

‘No play’ notices may be posted up on the courts, after heavy rain, or courts may be locked.

Coaching, matches, tournaments

Courts may be allocated for matches, tournaments or coaching at the discretion of the Tennis Committee.

Visitors

Visitors are welcome to play anytime during the week all year round, and on Saturday and Sunday mornings before 12 pm, when the clay courts are open.
