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
