Willison Park prides itself on having a minimum number of rules in the running of the club but it does have the following expectations for competition players:

proper tennis footwear for clay courts
Tennis shoes should be non-marking and have a flat sole. Cross-trainers and heeled shoes are not appropriate and damage the courts. Also, note that some shoes marketed as tennis shoes may be designed for hard-courts and may not be suitable for the clay courts at WPTC.
