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.

LAST WEEK’S RECAP | March 24 – 30, 2014

There’s a sub group within our group. It started out with 2 friends from Englewood who met up 3 summers ago and started playing together at the parties ever since. Like the “Wizard of Oz” last fall they picked up members along the way: player from Jersey City, then another also from Jersey City and finally one more from West Orange. The 5 play together, go out together and some of them even travel together. Tonight 3 more, from Hoboekn, Secaucus and West New York joined them and decided to stay on the same 2 courts for the rest of the evening. They said it was a lot of fun!
