PLEASE NOTE: Use of Cell Phones and Electronic Devices on Court

from Alan Steinhauser, Chairman of Officials - USTA/Midwest Section

Use of electronic devices on court is a violation of the code under all governing bodies of tennis.

What happens when a cell phone or electronic device goes the first time?

In an unofficiated match a player may claim a let for a cell phone or pager of an opponent and then claim a point for each subsequent disturbance under the Hindrance Rule.

Only a certified USTA official may issue a Code Violation with regard to this issue in particular when a player has been instructed to turn the device off and stow it.
