As a parent or guardian of a young member of Wedmore Tennis Club, please help us abide by the following code of practice:
• Encourage your child to learn the rules of tennis and play within them.
• Discourage unfair play and arguing with officials.
• Help your child to recognise good performance, not just results.
• Never force your child to take part in sport.
• Set a good example by recognising fair play and applauding the good performances of all.
• Never punish or belittle a child for losing or making mistakes.
• Publicly accept judgements made by officials.
• Support your child’s involvement and help them to enjoy their sport.
• Use correct and proper language at all times.
• Allow your child to play in the Mini Tennis colour stage that is appropriate to them. This will ensure they enjoy playing the game, develop their skills and gain confidence.
• Purchase balls and rackets that match the stage your child is in.
• Be patient. Steady progression is unusual in children; peaks and plateaus are common.
• At no stage should you communicate with your child or interfere with the on-court helpers and referees during a match.
● Talk quietly if you are near courts that are in use
● Do not walk behind a court during an active point. Move quickly when able
● Spin to determine who serves first
● Balls from another court should be rolled to the back of the court and not to the player unless requested to do so
● Pick up your balls from your court and return them politely to the person serving within your court
● Do not criticise your partner or opponent but offer encouragement instead
● Call out line calls clearly and if not sure, play a let
● In doubles, both receivers should agree on a line call, if not sure play a let
● Always respect the line calls of your opponent as he/she is nearest to the ball and line
● Each side should keep score – if either is not sure, go back to the point where both sides agree
● Do not argue with your partner or opponent and always be pleasant on court
● Do not deliberately hit a ball at an opponent
● Apologise if your ball hits the top of the net and falls to win the point
