[tennisbiz2] Re: Code of Behavior

From: Paul Fein <>

Hello everyone,

     I am not clear about two purported "straight-forward rules" Lawrence
Jeziak proposes to encourage, educate, inculcate and enforce "proper
behavior" on tennis courts.

     The first is: "no beverages except water." I'm an ice water kinda guy,
especially in non-winter months. But many of my partners and opponents
drink Gatorade or some other form of nutritious or flavored liquid. Should
we have "liquid police" to prohibit non-water drinkers? Is there something
wrong with non-water drinkers and drinking -- other than drinking alcohol
where it's prohibited -- that I am not aware of?

     I also need to be enlightened about why "no more than three balls on any
court that is not a lesson by a club pro" would improve "proper behavior."
Yes, some clubs may not want members to bring a basket or two of balls,
even for a father or mother to teach their very young kids a bit or simply to
get more hits in with them without any teaching. But surely using six balls --
or even nine balls -- causes no harm to anyone. Also, many players believe
(rightly) that six balls enable them to do more hitting of balls and running
during their 60 or 90 minutes -- and less picking up of balls. I know some
teaching pros who advocate that their club and center members always
play with six balls, if they can afford it.

     Where do you stand on these burning issues?
