Tennis Rules and Regulations
Hours of Operation
The tennis courts are available to all members and their guests from 6:00am - 11:00pm, Tuesday through Sunday. Four of our seven courts are lighted. Keys to the lights are available to all members in the club office. The lights shut off automatically at 11:00pm. Adults have priority from 6:00pm – 11:00pm each evening. They may bump those players under 21 during this period.
Tennis Dress Code
Clothing should be ‘proper’ tennis attire. Jeans, tank tops and swimming apparel are prohibited. Black soled shoes are not allowed on the courts; proper tennis shoes only for your safety. Shirts must be worn at all times – no exceptions.
Tennis Guest Policy
Members are responsible for signing in their guests. Guest fees are $10.00 per player for the day's use. There is a guest register located beside the chalkboard and all guests must be signed in. Failure to sign in your guest would be a violation of Del Rio’s Code of Conduct and may lead to disciplinary action. We must police ourselves in order for all to enjoy the club facilities.
Members should use the board to sign ‘time on’ the court and ‘time off’ the court. It is mandatory to sign in and out during busy times and/or during interclub matches. Court reservations are not taken so play is first come, first serve. Club approved tournaments and interclub events have priority above all other play. One court will be reserved for ‘open play’. When the courts are full, singles games shall be limited to 40 minutes and doubles 70 minutes. (Three players shall be treated as doubles).
Non-members having taken a lesson are allowed to stay and play tennis without a guest fee as long as courts are available, and with the understanding that they may instantly be "bumped" by a member.
