These hand-painted tags are used to mark tennis court occupancy at the Nordic Club—an unlikely establishment on the banks of Gulshan Lake in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Tags for adult members are painted light blue, red tags are for visitors, and turquoise tags are for junior members.

The Nordic Club was founded by diplomats and expats living in Dhaka—one of a number of clubs started there by foreign nationals (including the Dutch Club, the German Club, and the Aussie Club.) Members of the Nordic Club are given access to its tennis court and bar. According to Bangladeshi law, alcohol is prohibited—however special provisions exist for foreigners and non-Muslims to consume it within the confines of certain hotels and ace clubs like this one.
