House league directors have the authority to replace anyone who does not honour their commitment.

The club’s goal is to provide its members with an opportunity to play tennis and improve their game in a friendly, competitive environment. You must be able to play full court tennis; have complete knowledge of the rules, scoring and etiquette of tennis. House league directors retain the right to make adjustments to ensure that a competitive environment is maintained.
