Broad Leaf Code of Conduct
No player will engage in unsportsmanlike behavior.
No player will exhibit any behavior that endangers the health or safety of others.
The use of obscene language or gestures are not permitted.
Players will treat others fairly and with respect.
Don’t overplay your current physical condition. Age, experience, physical condition and athletic ability will impact the level of your game. Don't try to make plays beyond your abilities. Know your exercise limits and be sure to tell co-players what they are. If you have a history of heart problems, back pain, tennis elbow, breathing problems, etc. be sure you have any necessary equipment or medicines at hand.
Stretch before and after playing.
If you are crossing an active court to get onto a vacant court or to leave a court, wait until their current point is over. Ask them for permission to cross their court.
If a ball breaks, remove it from the court.
If you see someone who displays signs of dizziness, weakness, or lack of concentration, keep an eye on them. Recommend a time-out if you think it necessary for their sake.
Wear proper tennis (court) shoes. Running shoes are not advised, as the raised tread can cause falls. If you see someone playing with “bad” shoes…sandals, non-court-shoes, leather soles of any kind, stop play.
If you can go back more safely for an overhead than your partner, (if their mobility is limited), YOU cover the overheads. Likewise, let them cover for you if the situation is reversed.
Don't dive for balls.
If someone falls on the court, all play STOPS until their needs are addressed.
