True to its objective of promoting the playing of games especially that of Lawn Tennis and having built very early in its existence two Lawn Tennis Courts, members began to play Lawn Tennis in earnest. The Captain of the Club, assisted by the Sub-Captain, was the key-figure in this respect. He was responsible for the maintenance of the Lawns and nets, the provision of balls, and for ensuring discipline and orderliness during the playing of games. He held sway during the playing of games, Lawn Tennis etc., his ruling on the interpretations of the rules of the game and on discipline being final. The title of Captain was later changed to Warden.
