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.

A newcomer from Hoboken found us a few months ago but never gave it a try tonight. I just thought it was cool that here’s someone from Australia. Last Thursday a newcomer originally from Poland and last Friday a newcomer originally from Romania joined. I just love to gloat how much New Jersey is a melting pot with so much diversity here…

There is a tennis craze sweeping our area – an emergence of a new group of players finding us the last 2 months, ~10 newcomers a week, how exciting! Monday alone I’ve had 5 newcomers interested in joining, 1 through another newcomer from last Saturday. Oddly many 20-30-somethings are joining. Players find me through the internet, posters at tennis clubs and best yet – word of mouth, the greatest compliment…

LAST WEEK’S RECAP | December 28 – Jan 3, 2016

The Saturday party was equally as large as the Friday party, filled with post-holiday people who want to work off some pounds or just get in their tennis fix. One player from Cliffside Parks signs up – “If it’s Saturday, it must be tennis!” That sums it up pretty well for all the Tennis Buffs.
