GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP IS EXPECTED!
Good sportsmanship on the part of players and spectators is EXPECTED! Each player will be asked to sign the Player's Promise and each spectator will be asked to sign the Spectator's Oath. They will be available at the tournament desk for signing:
I recognize that tennis is a sport that places the responsibility for fair play on me. I promise to abide by the rules of the game, which require me to give the benefit of the doubt to my opponent. At all times I shall strive to compete with the true spirit of sportsmanship, recognizing that my behavior on the court is a direct reflection of my character. Whether this match ends with my victory or defeat, I promise to conduct myself in a way that honors my opponents, my team, those who support me, and the game of tennis.
Parent, Coach, and Spectator's Oath:
I PLEDGE TO:
•Set a positive example for players.
•Treat fellow parents, coaches and spectators, and officials with respect.
• Emphasize the importance of fair play and good sportsmanship.
• Cheer respectfully for winners and good points, not errors and doubles faults.
• Allow players to work out on-court disputes.
Courts at Jefferson will be open before 8 AM Saturday and before 9:30 AM on Sunday. After that, there are not warmup courts on site. There is a double sided hitting wall which allows for 4-6 players. Some nearby courts for warming up if you wish are:
Falls Church High School (5-10 minutes) 7521 Jaguar Trail. Falls Church, VAAnnandale High School (10-15 minutes) 4700 Medford Drive Annandale VA
There are other courts that are public parks but they may be taken by the public so I have listed highschools which are also open to, but rarely filled by, the public.
