Tennis Dress Code

The Seattle Tennis Club strictly adheres to an tennis dress code for all members and guests. Any Member who is found to be in violation of the Dress Code may be suspended. All players must wear clean, white clothes in good repair and full rubber soled shoes made for tennis. Each article of clothing, including hats, must be at least 2/3 white. The STC Member standard for shoes is that they must present as white. All players must wear shirts. Men’s shirts must have sleeves. T-shirts identified for tennis are acceptable as long as they otherwise meet STC color restrictions. Colored outerwear /warm-up suits, sweaters and vests are acceptable, as long as they are loose enough to allow for appropriate tennis attire underneath. An easy way to remember the rule is “If it’s skin tight, it must be white.” The outdoor courts have surfaces which suffer permanent markings when running shoes are worn; therefore, running shoes may not be worn on any of the tennis courts. Appropriate court shoes may be purchased at the Pro Shop.
