Collaroy Tennis Club encourages fair play and good sportsmanship – players are expected to abide by the Code of Conduct below. Failure to comply will result in a warning or suspension.
- The Collaroy Tennis Club (CTC) is a local social tennis club with a range of members, covering a wide age range and diverse experience.
- The facility is leased from Northern Beaches Council and, as such, is a public facility.
- The facility is immediately adjacent to a large public park with a children’s playground located next to the facility.
- All members should be respondent to an appropriate set of behaviour expectations to ensure that all play is conducted in a civil and socially responsible manner.
- All members should feel comfortable to help uphold and reinforce good behaviour, as well as help correct bad behaviour should it occur.
- All play, whether competition or social, should be conducted in a spirit of fair play and good sportsmanship.
- Bad language is not acceptable in and around the facility to keep CTC in good standing with all stakeholders, i.e. CTC members, public players, coaching students, attending families and our landlord.
- All equipment, including racquets and balls, is to be treated with respect.
- Throwing of racquets is to be discouraged at all times.
- The facilities are expensive to maintain and it is in every member’s best interests to take the greatest care possible to prolong the life of all club facilities, furniture, equipment, including court surfaces, nets and fences.
- Remain aware that there is a high chance of children being in or near the facility, so member behaviour is seen by a broader audience than just the players on the court.
- Also, refer to Tennis Australia’s Code of Behaviour for tournaments and weekly competitions.
