Tennis Courts - Rules of Use
1.0 General Information
1.1 The tennis courts are for use by members of the Forest Glade Estates Homeowners Association (members). Only Forest Glade residents and their immediate family and guests may use the tennis courts, so long as the resident’s homeowners dues are current. All members are expected to follow the association’s rules and to ensure that others do the same.
1.2 Any unauthorized persons seen using the tennis courts should be asked to leave by Forest Glade residents. If asked to identify yourself as an owner or a guest, please do so courteously.
1.3 Access to the tennis courts is protected by a combination lock. If you forget the combination, ask any board member for it. If the combination is changed for any reason, all members will be provided with the new combination.
1.4 Members must ensure when using the tennis courts that no damage occurs to the court surface. Members will be responsible for any damage that they or their guests cause.
