The Code and Courtesy of Tennis Play
Rules of Play & Court Courtesy

  1.  It is an unwritten law that any “doubtful” call must be resolved in favor of the opponent.
  2. It is better to play the game playing “close” balls as “in” although do not cheat your partner by being too scrupulously honest.
  3. When looking “across” a line, do not call a ball “out” unless you can clearly see part of the court between where the ball hits and the line.  It is ridiculous to call a ball half a court away from where it lands.
  4. If you do not call an “out”, “let” or “fault” instantaneously, it is still in play.  Most important, a ball is not “out” until it lands out and is called “out”.
  5. Do not call balls “out” until they have landed out of bounds.  If you think a ball is going out, say “Bounce it” to your partner.  Once an “out”, “fault”, or “let” call is made, play stops regardless of what happens thereafter.
  6. If a ball is questionable, do not ask for a replay or “let” call.  Do not tell your opponents to “take two”.  Without question, the point goes to your opponents.
  7. If you catch a ball that you think is going out, the point goes to the opponent.  A ball must land “out” before it is out.
  8. When a ball is served, the partner of the receiver should call the service line, and the receiver should call the center line and the side lines.
  9. It is the obligation of a player to call all shots landing on, or aimed at his side of the net; to help his opponent make calls WHEN THE OPPONENT REQUESTS IT; and to call against himself (with the exception of a first service) any ball that he sees clearly out on his opponent’s side of the net.
  10. If your partner has called a ball “out” and you clearly see that the ball was good, just quietly inform your partner and let your partner say “Correction, ball was good”.  Do not let your opponents suffer from a bad call.
  11. Violations such as:  A ball touching a player, a player touching the net, an opponent’s return before the ball has passed the net, or a double bounce call (“not up”) should be announced immediately.
  12. If a ball hits a net post or any permanent fixture within the court area during a rally and lands in the proper court, ball continues in play.  A serve that hits a net post and lands in the proper court is a fault.  A ball hitting a scoring device attached to the net post results in loss of the point to the striker.
  13. There is no such thing as a quick server.  When a receiver is not ready, a hand should be held up.  If you take any motion to swing at the ball, you are saying you are ready and cannot call a “let”.  Receiver should play at a reasonable speed set by the server.
  14. It is important to audibly announce the game score prior to serving each point and the set score prior to the first serve.
