Court Opening and Closing Hours:  Play must not commence prior to 9:00 AM and play must be completed by 8:00 PM.


Maximum Number of Players:  To ensure good relations with our neighbours a maximum of 20 players can be on the courts at any one time.


Footwear:  Non-marking court shoes are mandatory.


Balls and Paddles:  The Club will make balls available for use, however, players can use any ball they agree to play.    Paddles are rated for noise; it would be the Club’s preference if quieter paddles are used. 


Line calls:  Always accept decisions of the referees. In instances where there are no referees, the decision is made by the team on the receiving side; their decision is to be accepted. 


Smoking – Regardless of the product, smoking is not permitted on the Cricket Club site.


Dogs - Dogs are not allowed on the courts.  In the common area between the courts dogs are discouraged.  In the event that a member brings a dog they must be controlled at all times by the member (e.g. on a leash).


On Leaving the Courts – Ensure that all refuse is removed and the gate is closed.
