Teaching your own kids for free on a public court should be your right. However the current rules are:

If you are giving your own kids lessons for free it should No problem, but why is it that public courts are trying to enforcing that rule. It looks like that they don’t care about supporting our youth, they are only protective because they care about the money.  They don’t want other tennis parents to watch a good lesson from a “regular” mom or dad, because these parents may wonder  that this is way better  than the local pro or city program.

Many cities are looking for any form of revenue and collecting fees is just one way! But it is still wrong, public courts are paid with taxpayers money and should be available to the public.
