In an effort to promote a more enjoyable and fair experience for all, the following policy is in immediate force and effect, and will be diligently and stringently enforced. USTA Southern California (SCTA) has implemented a "ZERO TOLERANCE" policy on improper behavior.
1. Any attempt by a spectator to speak to an official regarding a line call or other ruling during match play will be cause for immediate removal from the playing area and, if warranted, from the premises.
2. Any spectator behavior deemed unacceptable towards a player. other spectator or staff member will be cause for immediate removal from the playing area or the entire premises. If said behavior is directed towards a player, either before, during or after a tournament, it will result in an automatic and immediate suspension of that spectator's right to attend USTA Southern California tournaments, for a period of time to be determined by the USTA Southern California Grievance and Sportsmanship Committee.
