Tennis Teams

Member Travel Teams

ECA will sponsor adult travel teams in the Upper Valley League: one women’s and two men’s.  The composition of the teams will depend upon the makeup of the Upper Valley League and players’ interest.  Ideally Eastman will sponsor women’s  “B” and men’s “A” and “B” teams.

Teams will be coached by the Tennis Pro. In addition to weekly matches, regularly scheduled practices will be held and run by the coach. Matches are usually played on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and practices will be scheduled at the convenience of the coach and players. There will be a $50 fee per member to cover the cost of the practices.  The Upper Valley League fee will be charged separately. Contact Recreation at (603) 863-6772 with questions, to sign up, and pay your fee.

Player Code of Conduct

The highest type of sportsmanship is expected from every player.  And understanding of and a commitment to the points below are paort of your responsibility as a player.

  1. From the beginning of the match, play must be continuous.  Attempts to stall or extend rest periods are clearly illegal.
  2. Intentional distractions that interfere with opponents concentration or effort to play are against the rules.
  3. Spectators are welcome to watch and enjoy matches.  Their role is clearly restricted to that of passive observer with no involvement of any kind during a match. No coaching.

Spectator Code of Conduct

Eastman promotes good sportsmanship by athletes, coaches and spectators.  We request your cooperation by supporting the teams in a positive manner.  Excessive cheers, profanity, racial or sexist comments or other intimidating actions will not be tolerated and are grounds for removal from the site of competition.

On-Court Rules

  1. If you have any doubts as to whether a ball is out or good, you must give your opponent the benefit of the doubt and play the ball as good. You should not play a let.
  2. It is your obligation to call all balls on your side to help your opponent make calls when the opponent requests it, and to call against yourself (with the exception of a first service) any ball that you clearly see out on your opponent’s side of the net.
  3. Any “out” or “let” must be made instantaneously (i.e. made before either an opponent has hit the return or the return has gone out of play) otherwise, the ball continues in play.
  4. Do not enlist the aid of spectators in making line calls.
  5. If you call a ball out and then realize it was good, you should correct your call.
  6. To avoid controversy over the score, the Server should announce the set score (e.g. 5-4) before starting a game and the game score (e.g. thirty-forty) prior to serving each point.
  7. If players cannot agree on the score, they may go back to the last score on which there was agreement and resume play from that point or they may spin a racket.
  8. Foot faults are not allowed. If an opponent persists in foot faulting after being warned no to do so, the Referee should be informed.
  9. Do not stall, sulk, complain, or practice gamesmanship.
  10. Wait until the players on another court have completed a point before retrieving or returning a ball.
