In 1988 Lee Dobson and Donna-Faye Madhosingh invited all women members of Tennis BC, age 35 and over, to attend a meeting held at Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club. The group nominated and selected an executive, which would act for all senior women players in co-operation with Tennis BC. The first executive committee included Lee Dobson, President; Donna-Faye Madhosingh, Vice President; Pat Runge, Secretary; Bo Kwan, Treasurer; and Marilyn Hermansen, Communications/Membership.
Players are to act in accordance with the BCSWTA mandate. As such, players or any persons associated with a player (i.e.: friends or family) are expected to give due respect to the host clubs, their members, officials, other players and any other person associated with the tournament or BCSWTA.
Misconduct, whether on or off the court, will result in penalties against the Player. Such misconduct will be determined by the BCSWTA’s Committee at its sole discretion.
1. The first breach of the BCSWTA Mandate/Code of Conduct will result in a written warning.
2. The second breach will result in a 1 year suspension from all BCSWTA Tournaments
3. The third breach may result in a life-time ban from BCSWTA Tournaments
To be eligible for a year-end ranking, a player must be a current member of Tennis BC and be a resident of British Columbia.
