2018 QTC Policies

What should you bring to tennis?

Players should bring:

  • Hat
  • Water Bottle
  • Sunscreen (provided)
  • Non-marking soled shoes
  • Required medication/s
  • Racquet (the centre can provide a racquet for trials)

Indemnity

I, (or if you are under the age of 18, your parents/ guardian), hereby indemnify the Queensland Tennis Centre and staff from any responsibility and/or claim for any possible injury, damage or loss during my attendance at tennis training and agree to the above Terms and Conditions.

Parent/Guardian Involvement

Parents/Guardians are encouraged to watch. However, we do ask that they do not enter the court unless requested by the coach (excluding Hot Shots Minis where parent participation is required for the younger age groups). QTC feels that it is extremely important that only positive reinforcement is used by players and spectators.

Public Holidays and Student Free Days

Coaching at the Club: Coaching does not go ahead on public holidays.

Coaching at schools: No school = no coaching.

Wet Weather

If it is raining or looks like it is going to rain, please call QTC on 3214 3800 to find out if your program is going ahead. An official decision is made:

  • 30mins prior to all Group Classes and Private Lessons
  • 60mins prior to all Fixtures Programs

Whilst every step is taken to arrive at the correct decision, please remember QTC has no control over the weather. In the event of a lesson being washed out, please book in for a Make Up Lesson at the QTC.

Please do not make assumptions about the weather; an unexplained absence will forfeit the opportunity for a Make Up Lesson if the session goes ahead.

Make Up Lessons

The Queensland Tennis Centre wants to make sure that you get the most out of your time with us, and as such we utilise Make Up Lessons for any missed Group Classes, and/or Private Lessons.

We require 2 hours notice via phone (3214 3800) to advise that you or your child will be unable to attend the booked lesson. Insufficient notice for an absence will forfeit the opportunity for a Make-up lesson.

  2. Public Holidays / Student Free Days
