  • Close gates firmly behind you when entering and leaving the playing area.
  • Any balls coming on your court should be returned promptly to the rightful owner but NOT while play is in progress.

  • Spectators are not allowed in the playing area. Only those listed on the court booking, authorized MTC staff and volunteers are allowed on court. Animals and children should be properly supervised off court.

  • Court Changes - The Clubhouse clock is the official time and all players must leave the courts at the end of their time slot. Players may not come off the courts before the end of their time slot for the purpose of reserving another court. Playing on one court while having booked another court is NOT permitted.
Keep ball machines, hoppers, or play with more than 3 balls away from other courts in play. Book Court 4 or courts with divider nets.

Court 8 is the preferred lesson court.
During Club sponsored events, all possible efforts will be made to keep at least two courts available for general play. Occasionally, all eight courts may be in use, but as soon as possible, courts will be made available for booking.
It is the responsibility of each member to share in the upkeep and maintenance of the courts.

The playing surface must be kept clean, dry and free from dirt or other debris that could cause damage to the court surface or injury to players.

MTC Staff or an Executive member may declare a court unplayable if unsafe.
Only beverages in capped, unbreakable containers are allowed on court. Players are responsible for cleaning up their own spills, especially any that may affect playing conditions or damage the court surface. Please place all litter and recyclables in the appropriate container.
Guest privileges are suspended during pandemic play. Only registered members may play at the Club.
