Be on time
If any court is not in use ten minutes after the booking period starts the booking is not valid.

Proof of Booking
Print outs or mobile phones can be taken as ‘proof’ of booking. If no proof is available, then members are asked to be reasonable, but the person on court will be deemed to have priority.

An adult should accompany children under 13. Any unaccompanied child behaving irresponsibly may be asked to leave.

Code of Conduct
The courts are not for use for cycling, skates, roller blades, or for any other ball games which cause any disruption to tennis players or damage to the surface.
