Proper tennis attire for members and guests is mandatory at all times on ALL courts (except courts 9 & 10), to include shirts being tucked in and baseball hat being worn properly. While collars are not strictly required, all shirts without collars must be clearly identifiable as proper 'tennis shirts'; standard T-shirts whether sloganed or not, including sleeveless tee shirts, should not be worn on the courts. No bathing suits, basketball shorts, running shorts or cut-off jeans will be permitted. It is mandatory that proper tennis shoes must be worn. Jogging shoes or bare feet are not allowed. On Pool house courts (courts 9 & 10) T-shirts, bathing suits and cover-ups are allowed when the courts are not being used for clinics or tournament play.
Smoking in not permitted except on the golf course, outdoor golf practice areas, the chairs outside the locker rooms and the field by the pool.
