All rules and regulations are enforced at the discretion of the Tennis and Paddle Pros. The following are guidelines to follow for the most commonly encountered situations.

Tennis Regulations

Dress and Sportsmanship

  • Tennis shoes are the only authorized type of shoe to be worn on the courts. Shoes are required at all times.
  • Tennis clothes are considered most appropriate and full tennis attire is required at all times.  (i.e., no cut-offs, bathing suits, tank tops, etc).
  • The “Code of Conduct” (copy in office) and principles of good sportsmanship are to be followed by all players at all times. Profanity, abuse, yelling during play, and racquet throwing are to be avoided at all times.

Court Priority

The Lyceum does utilize a court reservation system, found here: https://www.glendalelyceum.com/paddle-court-reservations/. Members are strongly encouraged to use this system to reserve both tennis and paddle courts.

  • When courts have not been reserved, and people are waiting, play will be restricted to two sets per match.
  • All players must be present to establish priority for a court.

Play Schedule

Tennis Court maintenance will be completed by 9:00 AM each day. Play is prohibited while the courts are being maintained. During periods of extremely warm or dry weather, it may be necessary to perform court maintenance during the day. Playing is not permitted when the nets are dropped.

Paddle Tennis Regulations

A security code is available to Senior and Racquet-Only Members.  The code is changed frequently thus it is the member’s responsibility to regularly contact the General Manager for code updates.  It is the responsibility of those having access to the code to refrain from sharing the code with non-members and dependent members and to assume total responsibility for the multi-purpose building when it is opened under their use of the code.  Members 18 and under may not use the MPB without a Senior member or adult present.

Multi-Purpose Building (MPB)/Tennis Veranda

The MPB and/or Tennis Veranda may be rented by Lyceum members for private parties. Please refer to the Rental Price Sheet, available from the General Manager, for detailed rules and pricing.

Hours

The MPB and Courts will close at 11:00 PM except Friday and Saturday nights when they will close at midnight.  This rule will be enforced and is based upon the Lyceum’s agreement with the Glendale Police Department.

Court Reservations

  • When courts have not been reserved, and people are waiting, play will be restricted to two sets per match.
  • All players must be present to establish priority for a court.

Cleaning the Courts

Heaters have been installed under the courts  to assist with ice and snow removal, but are not large enough to melt large amounts of snow. To prevent ice build-up that is difficult to remove, snow MUST be removed prior to turning on the heaters.  Only the leaf blower, brooms, and plastic shovels, stored in the MPB, should be used to clean snow and ice. Absolutely NO metal tools or chemicals (including ice melt and/or salt) should be used on the courts.

Damage

Payment for any damages to the facilities, due to abuse or due to improper supervision of 18 and under members, will be the responsibility of the members and/or the parents.

Miscellaneous

The MBP must be locked and lights extinguished when the member leaves the premises. Most importantly, the courts heaters must be turned off.

The Board is proud of the paddle tennis facility and looks to the membership to follow these simple rules which assure continued enjoyment of the facilities.

No smoking is permitted in the MPB.  No smoking is permitted on the paddle or tennis courts.
