General Policies


At the Sarah Vande Berg Tennis and Wellness Center (SVB) we have adopted policies, procedures, rules, and regulations ("policies") designed to provide for the safe, enjoyable, and healthy use of our premises and events by you - our members and guests. 

These policies apply to your conduct on SVB's premises, which include its centers and all outdoor areas, including its parking lots, sidewalks, turf ("premises") or any use of SVB's online, mobile or interactive offerings or websites. They also apply to your conduct during its programs, training, events, or other SVB-sponsored activities off the premises ("events"). 

These policies supplement those posted or otherwise provided in our centers. In some instances, the law may establish different requirements applicable to certain areas of the center and may not be called out here. To the extent of a conflict with other policies, the more restrictive policy applies. If you violate any of these policies, your membership or center access as a guest may be suspended or terminated. 

Our decision on all questions regarding construction or interpretation of these policies is final. We may change these policies at any time without notice in our sole discretion. As a member or guest of SVB, you are responsible to review and comply with these policies at all times.
