These policies and rules exist for the purpose of maintaining our courts and providing playing opportunities for members and guests.

PLEASE NOTE THAT TENNIS MONCTON SPONSORED CLASSES AND TOURNAMENTS TAKE PRECEDENCE OVER INDIVIDUAL PLAY. Tennis Moncton will make every effort to inform its members of scheduled events well in advance. In addition, when possible, every attempt will be made to designate open courts during scheduled activities/tournaments.

Court Rotation -Time Limits Policy

WHEN MEMBERS WITH VALID MEMBERSHIP CARDS ARE WAITING FOR A COURT, THE FOLLOWING RULES APPLY:

  • SINGLES - One hour maximum. Singles players should finish the game in progress and then form -doubles. However, if singles players prefer to continue their game, or if waiting players decline to play doubles, the singles players are entitled to finish their hour's play. Rallying or practice counts towards the allotted time limits
  • DOUBLES - One and one-half hours maximum. Bringing in one replacement player at a time in a doubles match DOES NOT extend the time limit. When the first hour and a half has elapsed, the court is to be relinquished to any waiting member, immediately upon completion of the GAME in progress.
    Rallying or practice counts towards the allotted time limits.

A Player awaiting the arrival of an opponent may NOT hold a court vacant.
Scheduled Adult Programs or Events (ie; Wednesday Night Doubles) are open to ages 19 and over only.

Youth Court Policy (youth is defined under 12 yrs of age)

  • The youth courts are primarily intended to provide an opportunity for youth to be introduced to the sport of tennis and to develop their skills at an appropriate level and playing field.
  • Adults, for the same intent and purpose, could also use the courts. However, youth play, programs and related activities will have precedence over adult play with the exception of Tennis Moncton organized tournaments in which case the youth courts will be used for pre game warm-ups.
  • Court etiquette/rules previously stated (page 1) apply to the youth courts as well.
  • Youths accompanied by an adult or guardian will have precedence over adults using the courts.
  • Court rotation - time limits are also applicable for youth courts (see section 'B' above)
