Tennis Dress Code

Members, guests and children should always wear proper tennis attire and shoes when entering the tennis pavilion, surrounding deck and using the tennis courts. All clothing must be tennis attire by design. (Example: cotton t-shirts, basketball shorts, baseball hats or workout shirts are not acceptable.) Acceptable hats should only be worn in the traditional manner, bill forward.  Running shoes, golf shoes and other non-court shoes are not allowed, especially because they can damage the courts. Ladies must wear tennis dresses or tennis skirts. Ladies shirts should be long enough to not expose their mid-drift during play. Denim, short shorts, cutoffs, cargo shorts, cropped tops, tank tops/sleeveless tops (males) and bathing suits are specifically not allowed on the tennis courts.
