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 different types:
Community Officiating Program
Being a Community Official is a great way to get involved in tennis at the grassroots level. They volunteer their time to assist tournaments and competitions by monitoring a number of courts during play, which helps to create a smooth running event. They also play a role in assisting and educating players, parents and coaches. As you progress through the Community Officiating pathway further opportunities to engage in paid officiating roles become available.
This training program covers the basic rules of tennis and tennis etiquette, general principles of officiating, child safety and the role of a community official. The best part about this program is that learning can be done online at your own pace. Join us and make a difference to the sport you love!

Line Umpire Training Program
This training program 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 training program is a mixture of online theory and on-court practical training. All new line umpire officials are expected to be multi-disciplined within their first 12 months as a court supervisor. In addition there will also be an expectation of new officials to complete two days of volunteering at chosen local tournaments.
