TENNIS COURT RULES

  • Wear shoes made for tennis courts. Black-soled running shoes are prohibited as they leave marks on the courts. Running shoes are dangerous as they can roll over and cause severe sprained ankles.
  • Do not open the tops of the water jugs to get ice or to store water bottles or drinks. We clean the jugs daily to keep them safe and sanitary.
  • Please bring  your own tennis balls unless you are playing in a drill or scheduled league match.  VC does not provide baskets of practice balls.
  • Please DO NOT CROSS a court while others are playing, in a lesson, during a drill or while the ball machine is in use.  We have GATES on EVERY court for player convenience.
