Court Etiquette

Just a reminder, our parties provide a fun and relaxing atmosphere, where players can have friendly competition. We simply ask attendees to follow these guidelines:

1. Introduce yourself to the new players on the court. This will make for a more wholesome experience.

2. Be cordial to your partners and opponents.

3. Refrain from giving instructions to anyone on the court unless they request them.

4. Do not gun for the person at the net with fast and hard hitting especially in mixed doubles.

5. Kindly pick up the balls for the server. It saves time and is just good etiquette.

6. When yo leave the court, please find the 3 balls you played with and leave them for the next group of players.

7. Do not call a ball out when you or your partner are unsure about a line call. It is unsportsmanlike and can stir unpleasant reactions.
Check USTA or other tennis websites for the official rules.

8. If you are scheduled to play the next hour, do not take more than a 10-minute break. There are players who play only 2 hours and could use the complete playtime.

2013 flew by so quickly and so has the 2013 New Year’s Eve Tennis Party, which was just last week. I remember the very first New Year’s Eve Tennis Party I ran 7 years ago, it was so hectic with so many decorations, aside from the abundant food and food preparations. This time around, I focused mainly on the food and less elaborate decorations. Every single partygoer expressed how much fun they had, how much they enjoyed the food and meeting different people…
