Policies & Regulation

Q: What kind of shoe does my child need to wear?

A:  Proper tennis shoes (i.e., non-marking soles) MUST be worn on the court at all times. Wearing supportive tennis shoes are critical to safety and performance, ensuring players have stability and a firm attachment to the playing surface. (Plus, it also helps keep Court 16’s courts in pristine condition!)

For your convenience, Court 16 is now carrying both Lacoste and Babolat tennis shoes in the most popular kid sizes, which you can pick up at the club:

  • Lacoste Carnaby Evo - Red / Navy: $65 - $75
  • Babolat Propulse BPM All Court Jr - Red: $65
  • Babolat Propulse BPM All Court W - White: $120

Q: What if my child forgets his/her tennis shoes one day?

A: If you happen to forget the proper pair of shoes, we lend out proper footwear in order to guarantee a safe environment and an effective session on the court.

Q: Can I pick my kid up late if I'm running behind?

A: Court 16 has a strict pick-up policy.  We require all parents or caregivers be on site when class ends.  If you’re running late, please contact the club to inform us.  A fee of $25 may apply if a parent or caregiver is late for pick-up.

Q: What qualifications do Court 16 coaches have?

A: All of our coaches have received and benefited from the highest certification from the USPTR (Professional Tennis Registry) to coach our young tennis players.
