Rules & Regulations
Use of Courts
Courts will be used on a first come, first served basis. Court use is not supervised at all times but use is checked regularly by a Roving Monitor.

Only the game of tennis is permitted on the courts. Any other use must be requested in writing to the Park & Recreation Commission. The School Committee will make decisions on some requests.

In-line skates, roller skates, and skateboards are not a permitted use. The courts are not to be used for practice space for any non-tennis sport.

Keep Our Courts Beautiful
All litter and debris created during the use of the courts must be removed at the end of use. Please remove all water bottles and tennis ball cans and caps prior to leaving the courts.

Guests
One guest may accompany an individual season badge holder on the courts. Residents should obtain their own season badges for regular use. Guests may be non-residents.

Badge holders may not operate Private Lesson Business on courts.

Maintenance
There is no staff designated to clean or sweep courts. Please call 781-455-7550, press 3 to report the need for repairs.

Waiting for Use of Courts
Change over on courts will be on the hour, quarter past the hour, half past the hour, and quarter to the hour. Appropriate designation has been posted at each court. If players are waiting to use a court, the group at the designated time must clear the court, whether an hour has passed or not.

Adults have priority use of the courts after 6 PM. Players, ages 15 and under, shall yield the courts if adults are waiting to play, unless playing tennis with an adult at the time.

The Park and Recreation Commission reserves the right to modify these rules when it is in the best interest of the public to do so, and to suspend the seasonal badge of any individual who does not abide by the rules.
