As members of the San Diego Tennis Federation, we have come together to enjoy our common interest in the sport of tennis. The way we conduct ourselves on and off the court at SDTF events and with our fellow members has an impact on everyone's enjoyment of the game and the value of each of our memberships. To insure that everyone is best served, we expect our members to follow this basic Code of Conduct.
To make sure the above Code is followed, the Board of Directors of the SDTF is committed to taking action against any infractions. As with any dispute or disagreement, it is always best if the parties resolve it among themselves. If this cannot be done, members are encouraged to first bring the matter to the attention of the person running the event (Friday night doubles, clinic, team tennis, club championships, etc). Should the event organizer not be able to satisfactorily resolve the issue, it should be brought to the attention of the SDTF Board. The Board will review and adjudicate the situation. Members found to be in violation of the Code of Conduct may be warned, sanctioned or, in extreme cases, removed from the club. The decision of the Board is final.
The goal of the SDTF is to create a fun social and competitive environment for its members where we can come together and enjoy the sport we love. We rely on each and every member to follow the spirit of our Code of Conduct and always err on the side of integrity and sportsmanship. We encourage you to speak up if you see, hear or experience something that you think isn't right. That will make the SDTF a better organization for all of our members.
