The Wychwood Tennis Club is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers. Its mandate is to promote tennis in a recreational context.  

Members have free access to 3 tennis courts from May until October at Wychwood (39 Lake Street, Aylmer). The courts located at Broad (140 Brook Street, Aylmer) will be used for junior courses only. They are open every day from 7:00AM to 11:00PM.

In addition to access to three tennis courts, the Club offers an array of organized activities to our members: recreational match play with friendly exchanges, leagues, tournaments, junior/adult courses, adult “méli-mélo” league (mixed league), and ladder league for adults and the Sphinx Game for juniors.

Club Rules

1.     Members always have priority to reserve courts, and therefore have priority over non-members. Registration includes access to Wychwood site.

2.     Non-members may become temporary members; cost: one adult $5: one junior $3.

- For one period of play of one hour. A period of play can be extended for temporary members only if there are no members waiting to play.

- These court fees can be deducted from full membership fees by up to $20 for adults, and $12 for juniors with their receipts.

- A maximum of four visits as a temporary member is permitted before membership is required.

- Temporary members may not participate in organized activities.

3.     Opening hours are from 7:00AM to 11:00PM every day.

- To encourage membership the club holds non-members liable for court fees (for temporary membership) during non-monitored periods if they are asked to pay by court attendants or club supervisors, who happen to be on site.

4.     Don’t forget to bring your token:

If there is no attendant on site:

- If members are waiting to play, please stop playing after an hour.

 - For example, if you began playing at 1:20pm you must give up your court any time after 2:20pm if members are waiting.

- Your token is your only proof of membership. Please wear it on your shoe so that it is visible.

- Please be a good sport about it.

If there is an attendant on site:

- The attendant will assign a court to you. If all the courts are in use, the attendant will let you know when the next court will be available.

- You must show your token to the attendant to maintain your priority

- While you are waiting, you may leave the courts, but you must return at least 10 minutes before the beginning of the play period assigned to you. If you do not, you will automatically lose your priority.

5.     Appropriate footwear (i.e. running/tennis shoes) is mandatory on the courts. No bare torsos please.

6.     Disrespectful or vulgar behavior (swearing, inappropriate body language, violence) will not be tolerated, and may result in disciplinary action (e.g. expulsion from a league or course, etc.); and in extreme cases, cancellation of membership.




Code of Ethics and Etiquette

The following rules are inspired from a document published by Tennis Canada, 

only a few details specific to the club have been added.

Rules of the court 2020:  https://www.tenniscanada.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/RULES-OF-THE-COURT-2020.pdf 


7.     In order to facilitate the organization of matches, please show up ten minutes before match-time.

8.     Players are responsible for all calls on their side of the net.

- Call the balls “out” and “let” immediately and in a clear way.

- Try to be fair, and in case of doubt, give the point to your opponent.

- Do not call the balls until they hit the ground.

- Do not question an opponent’s call.

9.     Players are responsible for calling their own infractions, e.g.:

- being hit by the ball,

- hitting or letting the ball bounce twice,

- touching the net

- crossing the net,

- foot faults

- etc.

10.  The server is responsible for announcing the score after each point and before each game.

11.  A server who lets his second ball drop when he serves should do so in a discreet way.

- However, it is better to keep the ball in a side pocket.

- If the opponent asks the server not to drop the ball, he must comply.

12.  Players should try to ensure their security and that of the other players.

- Before serving, make sure that your opponent is ready to receive.

- When a ball from another court comes into your court, immediately stop play and call “let” to avoid tripping on the ball.

 - Before retrieving a ball on an adjacent court, wait until the players have played the point.

- Do not distract other players. Do not walk/run, on or near the court when the ball is in play.

13.  Players should keep the atmosphere of leagues friendly.

- Be a good sport.

- Be fair and respectful.

- Encourage team play.

- Return balls to your opponent in a civilized manner.

- Shake hands with your opponent at the end of a game.

14.  Don’t interrupt a ball in play.

- Wait before trying to cross a court. There isn’t enough room behind the baseline to do it safely when the ball is in play.

- Do not talk to players while a ball is in play.

- Do not return a ball to another court while a ball is in play.

- Always consider your safety and the safety of those around you, and wait until the ball is no longer in play to make any moves.

15.  Manage your balls.

- Don’t bring more than three balls onto the court. Six balls are acceptable during a warm-up of a doubles match. More than 6 is considered a safety hazard.

- Ball baskets are allowed during lessons supervised by a certified instructor or solitary training as long as they do not disrupt other players.

- For lessons and solitary training, use courts 1 and 3 and hit towards side fences.

- Avoid hitting the ball in a careless or abusive manner.

16.   DO be mindful of your volume.

- Don’t yell and do abstain from abusive language; it is distracting and disrespectful.

17.  Avoid using your cell phone on the court.

You should turn it off completely or set it to silent if it’s court-side.

18.  DON’T eat a meal on the court.

- Small snacks (e.g. protein bars or a banana etc.) are fine.

- Beverages must be alcohol-free and in spill-proof, non-glass containers.

19.  DO dress appropriately.

- Sport, preferably tennis, shoes and shirt are mandatory.

20.  DON’T throw a party.

- Unless you’re taking a group lesson with a certified instructor, keep it to four players on the court at one time. 

- Any extras can rotate out as spectators

21.  DO be respectful.

- As a spectator, be respectful to those playing. 

- This includes not talking during a point or clapping when someone makes a mistake.

22.  DON’T litter.

- Please don’t leave without your garbage.
