Tennis is a Ladies and Gentlemen's Sport 

Tennis is a unique sport. The sport of tennis was invented in 1874 (lawn tennis) as a ladies and gentlemen's sport. 

Because of this there are certain rules that go with the game when played at tennis clubs.

  • Change shoes, or at least clean off dirt or sand before coming onto the court

  • Wait until a point is over before walking through the court

  • Do not talk during a tennis point (even if walking behind the curtains)

  • Be courteous  to your partner and your opponents

  • Do not throw or roll ball back onto another court while points are in play

  • Do not throw or smash your racquet 

  • Do not spit on the court
