Officials

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:

 INTRO TO LINE UMPIRING

COURT SUPERVISOR

This course is designed for those interested in becoming an on-court official. The course covers General Principles of officiating, as well as lineumpire techniques, voice calls, teamwork and communication. The course is a mixture of online theory and on-court practical training. Court Supervisors 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. Court Supervisors 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

There are a number of courses you can take part in:

  • Line Umpire Course – if you enjoy tennis and would like to be part of the action on court
  • Court Supervisors Course – court supervisors are off court roles which assist in ensuring play on a number of courts are running smoothly and to offer support and education to players on rules and the etiquette of tennis.  This is suited to people who love tennis, interested in the rules of the game and like communicating with a range of people.
