Procedures

Changing a Rating

Every effort has been made to arrange matches with players of similar abilities. However, if after playing for a couple of weeks, you feel that your abilities are less than or greater than those you are playing with, please let Linda Horn, Diana Schneider or Cheryl Jaeger know. Please complete a self rating form, too. The form is on the Vagabond Ski and Social Club Website under the “Publications” tab.

Players who arrive late

If a scheduled player is less than 10 minutes late and someone fills in for them, the stand in is allowed to finish the game. If the scheduled player is more than 10 minutes late, they forfeit their right to play and the substitute should be allowed to finish the time slot.  If both the scheduled player and the substitute agree, the substitute may step out. Please arrive at your court at least 5 minutes before your scheduled match.

Players who are “NO SHOWS”

Not showing up, not getting a substitute and not letting your grup know that you won’t be playing makes it difficult for your fellow tennis players to have a good match.  Every effort should be made to get a substitute from the sub list. If you get a substitute, please let your group know who is filling in for you. If you can’t get a substitute, let your group know so they can try and find someone to play for you.

Starting the Match

Prior to the match, the entire foursome should warm-up including practice services for a short period of time. Once the match begins, the server is not allowed to call “first in”. All practice serves should take place before the match begins.


 

Tennis Weather Guidelines

  1.  If it is raining steadily over the entire Metro area for an hour or longer, you do not have to show up at your assigned courts.  After tennis gathering at Alioto’s is held regardless of the weather will start at 7:30 pm.

  2. If there are scattered showers, it is important that you go to your assigned courts to see if it is raining there. If it is raining steadily and the courts are soaked, you may leave for the after tennis gathering. 

  3. If it has stopped raining at your court, but the courts are wet and you have squeegees or mops and are willing to help dry off the courts, please do so. If it is breezy or sunny the courts may dry up and you may get to play for part of the time.

  4. If it starts raining while you are playing, head to your cars and wait for 10 minutes to see if it’s just a brief shower. If the courts dry off you can resume play, if the courts are dry and safe and the second 45 minutes of tennis should be played.

  5. Be safe in what you do.  Do not play on wet courts if you are uncomfortable in doing so. If it is lightning with or without rain, clear the courts and go inside a building or your car until the lightning passes.

 

Unless there is a steady continuing rainfall over the area for at least an hour prior to and during your scheduled match, you should show up and plan on playing tennis.

Looking forward to seeing all of you on the courts and at Aliotos.


 

HONOR CODE OF TENNIS ETHICS 

The Honor Code of Tennis Ethics is prepared with the philosophy that today’s opponent is tomorrow’s tennis friend. To assure that end, this code should be used as a guideline during league play.

Courtesy: The game of tennis depends upon courtesy and fairness.

Conduct: 

a. The highest type of sportsmanship is expected from each player. 

b. You must call all balls as if you were a linesman, except that any doubt must be resolved in favor of your opponent. 

c. It is your obligation to help your opponent make a call when your help is requested. 

d. It is the server’s responsibility to call the score before each point

e. Call of “out” and “let” must be made instantly. A delay in making the call implies that the ball was not seen clearly and is therefore good.

f. In doubles, if one partner calls the ball “out” and the other partner calls it “good”, then it is the opponent’s point since doubt has been raised. 

g. Never try to take advantage of an opponent by serving before they are ready. Your opponent may ask for a “let” if you quick-serve him. However, if she either hits the ball or tries to hit it, she cannot then claim she was not ready. 

h. You must volunteer honestly against yourself violations such as double-bounce, ball touching your body or clothing, touching the net, and reaching over the net. 

i. In doubles, there should be no conversation during the course of play other than brief instructions to your partner, such as “mine, out run, bounce it, cross-over, etc.”

j. Disagreement of Score: If no agreement can be reached then the question should be settled by the toss of a racquet.

 

This is a social league. Unsportsmanlike behavior will not be tolerated!
