Packing one’s tennis racquet to take advantage of the great weather and sporting facilities in Puerto Vallarta is an obvious opportunity. Some folk from up North are quite uneducated about good manners on the court so here are some tips I’d like to share.
1 Give ALL the balls back to the person giving the lesson.
2 Never be so rude as to hit a ball while someone is gathering balls at the net. It is bad manners and dangerous. Getting hit in the back with a tennis ball DOES hurt. I KNOW.
3 Thank the person giving the lesson and if you are playing doubles your partner and then your opponents. Manners maketh the man is how the saying goes. You may be stinking rich but where I come from good manners and good breeding count for a lot more.
4 If your female partner is having an off day, do not change teams. That is rude!
5 If there is an accident on the court where someone gets hit by a loose ball make sure you have the decency to apologize and make sure your victim is okay. They are in pain and you are responsible don’t be a callous jerk.
6 No matter how low your level make you best effort to support your team. It is not fair to stand there like a lead weight popping balls into the net because you are too lazy to make an effort.
7 Tennis is for ladies and gentleman and if you are neither don’t pack your racquet.
8 Do not walk across your neighbours court to leave a court. Use your own exit gate please!
9 Do not resume play until everyone is ready and knows where the next ball is coming from.
10 Pay attention to the score and say it out loud so that no one gets lost.
Have some safe and fun tennis here in the wonderful facilities in Puerto Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta, Bucerias and La Cruz de Huanacaxtle.
Flamingos Club fyi has 3 great hard courts and 3 clay courts a gym and swimming pools. It is located just behind Mega before reaching Bucerias and is well worth checking out.
Please let me have your comments It is always rewarding to get some feedback.
