Training Courses

Becoming a tennis official is a great way to be involved in the sport you love! The first step towards becoming a tennis official is to undertake one of our entry level training programs. We have two entry level courses:

Line Umpire Course

Court Supervisor Course

This course is designed for those interested in becoming an on-court official. The course covers General Principles of officiating, as well as line umpire techniques, voice calls, teamwork and communication. The course is a mixture of online theory and on-court practical training. Being a Court Supervisor is a great way to get involved in tennis at the grassroots level. They are responsible for monitoring a number of courts at a tournament or competition. They assist and educate players, parents and coaches; and assist in the smooth running of an event. Other important roles of Court Supervisors are to help enforce the Rules of Tennis and Code of Behaviour, as well as resolving on court queries. This course covers General Principles of officiating, communication, Rules of Tennis and player management.


Upcoming Training Courses

We are updating our calendar with courses all the time. If you’re an Australian resident with a local tournament that you would like to be involved in, join one of our courses to get started!
