Club Duck Key Tennis Rules (Approved April 2008):

The following procedures and rules heave been established by the Tennis Committee for the fair and courteous use of the Club Duck Key tennis courts for club members and their guests. In addition, observing these procedures and rules will preserve the usefulness of the courts and keep maintenance costs at a minimum level. The equipment belongs to all the members, and the care shown in using the facility will keep dues at affordable levels. With that in mind, when using the tennis courts, please observe the following:

  • Hours of tennis court usage are from 7:00 a.m. until sunset, unless approved for a stated function by the Tennis Committee.
  • Mixed open round robin play will be daily from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. and from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and Sundays during daylight savings time and 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on those days during standard time.
  • Courts can be reserved at the sign-up clipboard no more than one day in advance. If there is a court reservation and subsequent no-show, then the court can be taken by another club member.
  • Members may reserve a court for one and ½ hours each day at times other than the previously designated "open" times.
  • Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult while playing tennis.
  • Children who are not playing tennis shall not be allowed on the court.
  • No one other than the actual players may be within the fenced area.
  • House guests of members will be permitted to use the facility for up to two week period of consecutive days when accompanied by a member or by special permission from the Tennis Committee. Non-house guests are limited to one visit or by special permission from the Tennis Committee. All guests must be accompanied by a club member.
  • Upon completion of play, players are responsible for sweeping the court, cleaning the lines, and putting balls away in containers in a timely manner.
  • Club members may not use the courts for profit (lessons, tournaments, demonstrations, etc.). Exceptions to this rule can be made only by the Tennis Commission.
  • Only flat sole tennis shoes may be worn on the court.
  • No pets, bikes, furniture, strollers or baby equipment are allowed inside the fenced area.
  • No food, glass containers, beverages, and cell phones may be taken inside the fenced area.
  • No swinging or jumping on the nets or the fences.
  • No smoking inside the court fences.
  • Deposit all trash in proper containers.
  • A member may be expelled from the use of the tennis courts by the Tennis Committee for a violation of rules and regulations. Expulsion can also occur for any conduct that in the opinion of the Tennis Committee is detrimental to the welfare, good order and character of the Club Duck Key. Members who are expelled must obtain permission from the Board of Directors in order to return.
  • Club Duck Key does not assume responsibility for the safety and health of members using the tennis court and related facilities.
