Tennis Rules

 

Opening Times
The courts will open following daily watering and maintenance.

Tennis Dress Code
Appropriate tennis attire and tennis shoes are required on the courts at all times. This rule applies to adults, juniors, and guests. It is almost impossible to define what is “appropriate tennis attire,” except by highlighting what will be prohibited and by relying on your taste of good judgment:
  • Bathing suits, dungarees, cut-off jeans, are not acceptable attire.
  • Play will not be permitted in bare feet, dirty sneakers or without proper tennis shoes.
  • T-shirts of any kind are strictly prohibited, with the exception of collarless tennis shirts.
The Head Tennis Professional and his staff have been ordered to strictly enforce this code.

Etiquette
Proper tennis etiquette should be observed at all times. Excessive noise, racquet throwing, ball slamming and profanity will not be tolerated and may result in loss of privileges.

Reservations
Court Reservations can be made by calling (973)783-2434. Courts must be reserved 24 hours in advance and can be booked for a maximum of 90 minutes (singles and doubles). The schedule of court reservations will be posted daily.

Sweeping Courts
If courts are used after 5:00 pm, members are kindly requested to sweep after use to prepare for evening watering.
