Club Tennis Rules

Court Booking System

Use of the hard tennis courts and squash courts is controlled by the Reservations Book located in the Clubhouse.

Priority Courts

As junior tennis members benefit from very low subscription rates, adult members have priority use of the grass tennis courts if no other courts are available, apart from specified times such as junior tournaments, junior matches, coaching sessions etc

Courts Open to Non-Members

Non-members may not play tennis on the grass courts unless accompanied or introduced by a member, who is responsible for ensuring that they are equipped with white tennis clothing and the correct footwear. Hard courts are available for non-members, if not previously booked or already being used by members.

Clothing and Footwear

It is a strict rule of Rye LTC that members and their guests wear predominantly white clothing and proper tennis shoes when using the grass tennis courts. An hour’s play wearing the wrong shoes can ruin a grass court for the whole season.
