Code of Practice: General Points

• Turn up on time to play; See - "General Rule No.7" requires that scheduled matches shall commence by 6.30pm.
• Talk quietly if you are near tennis courts that are in use.
• Do not walk behind a court during an active point. Pass as quickly as possibly after a point has finished.
• Do not disturb people on any court until they have finished.
• Before starting to play, ensure any equipment you are not using (spare rackets, clothing, drinks, etc.) are out of the way.
• Do not criticise your partner or opponent, be positive and offer encouragement instead.
• Line calls can be hard to see from the other side of the court so you must call your own lines, ensuring your opponent can hear you. A ball that touches any part of the line is good, so you don't have to say anything, but you could say "Yep!" as an acknowledgement.
• Always respect the line calls of your opponent because they are nearer than you.
• If you have a disagreement with your opponent, offer a let. This means you replay the point whether it's a first or second serve.
• Apologise if you accidentally hit an opponent with the ball, it is only common courtesy.
