SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY
Social media, the RLTC website, as well as all communication to members and the general public,
is the responsibility of the Board of Directors and Club Management.
All content must be accurate and should be in keeping with RLTC's role as a community tennis
club. Social media and website content should be related to tennis and club sponsors but can, at
times, support global or local causes as long as they are not political in nature. It is preferred this
be done with a tennis-related emphasis. For example, reposting content from Tennis Canada,
the National Capital Tennis Association, Ontario Tennis Association or related to professional
players' support for these causes, but this is not necessary all of the time. Content that supports
global or local causes must be approved by the Board President or a member delegated by the
All social media and website content must be free of racist, homophobic, sexist or other
inappropriate and harmful language or images.
