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.

I’m glad he’s back, he’s so nice to be with on/off the court. Many times women request to play mixed doubles with him and he always gladly obliges. A player from Bloomfield (the one with 3-year-old twins) had such a fun time tonight. He was very funny on the court. No wonder many players, even some serious one, ask to be on his court….

MONDAY (Jan 2nd)
A regular from Staten Island reported that Tenafly was a bit far but he was glad he came the Monday after New Year’s Day. He was exhausted in the end, playing a regular from Croton-on-Hudson and 3 youngsters from Boonton, Edgewater and Tenafly. Similarly the Croton-on-Hudson player drove quite far, 2 Mondays in a row (previous Monday Dec 26th and this Monday Jan 2nd), and was nicely tired after a good workout with the same players….
