MEMBER'S GUIDE


Code of Conduct:


Dress Code
Members are to use their own judgment in deciding what to wear with the following exceptions

  • Absolutely no cut-off jeans
  • Only members wearing tennis shoes will be allowed on the courts

The fact that you are a member of a tennis club and represent the Club when on the court should help dictate your choice of clothing  Any member of the executive committee can ask anyone inappropriately dressed to leave the courts.

Shoe Tags
Members are required to wear the shoe tag issued upon registration at all times.  The tag is the only means by which other players can identify you as a fellow member.  Players not wearing their tags will be considered non-members and could be asked to leave the court.

Security
Access to the courts is controlled by  code combination which each member is informed of upon registration.  This code is for members use only and any member found to be providing this combination to non-members risks having their membership revoked.  In the event the Club Executive is forced during the season to change the combination a notice will be placed in the Clubhouse of the new code.  It is recommended that members check the bulletin board regularly or with an Executive member to ensure that the code has not changed.
