PORT MELBOURNE TENNIS CLUB
Member Behaviour & Child Safety
PMTC is a warm and friendly community club run by volunteers and enjoyed by many members of our community across all age groups and abilities including social, coaching and competition. It is important to ensure that all PMTC members and associates have a positive experience, both on and off the court. With that, comes responsibility for all PMTC members and associates to ensure this occurs.
Your membership requires you to please read and familiarise yourself with the following:
Code of Conduct
The PMTC Code of Conduct sets out the expected behaviours across the club generally, that of players, administrators and of parents & guardians.
In addition to expected behaviours, the PMTC Code of Conduct also includes important information regarding appropriate footwear and clothing, care for the en tout cas courts and etiquette regarding the sharing of the courts.
