Member Code of Conduct

  • Care for our facilities
    • Use only non-marking sports shoes on all courts.
    • Use only squash racquets and balls in the squash courts. Tennis balls damage the walls.
    • Don’t lean on the nets or step over them.
    • Do not allow bikes, skateboards and roller boards to be used on courts as they can damage surfaces.
    • Close exterior and interior gates and the front door behind you, to keep balls within courts and for club security.
    • Clean up after yourself – don’t leave it for others.
    • If you’re last to leave please check that windows and doors are shut, heaters and lights are turned off, and that you leave the kitchen and lounge area tidy.
    • Tennis court lighting can only be used by club members.
  • Care for other members:
    • Be positive, courteous, and considerate on and off the court. Swearing and shouting is unacceptable.
    • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all players regardless of gender, age, ability or cultural background.
    • Foster an attitude of winning through fair play.
    • Take the time to learn the etiquette and rules of each code. This will make you more fun to share the court with.
  • Protect your club’s financial viability:
  • Member access cards and website logins must not be used by anyone other than a club member.
  • If you invite a playing visitor, you’re responsible for ensuring they pay a playing fee of $5 for adults or $2 for children (18 and under). Playing fees can be placed in the honesty box by the side entry gate. Non-members who use the courts more than four times a year must join as a member.
  • Pay your annual subscription notice on time. If you don’t receive a notice at annual subscription time (July/August) or, if your contact information changes, email membership@sumnertennisandsquash.co.nz.
  • Seniors are members until they resign. If you decide to resign, you must do so by 30 June in writing to the club committee (membership@sumnertennisandsquash.co.nz) and return your access card to P O Box 17 526, Sumner. Unless they are part of a family membership, juniors must re-register at the beginning of each season.
  • If you lose or find an access card, please contact membership@sumnertennisandsquash.co.nz.
  • The club is not responsible for the safety of junior players while they’re on site and parents must ensure their children are appropriately supervised.
  • Abuse of our bar facilities could jeopardize our liquor license. Please act responsibly and take care to ensure our licensing terms and conditions are met.
  • The club is a smoke free zone.
  • No dogs in the club house or courts.
