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 courses. We have two different types:
Court Supervisor Courses
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.

Line Umpire Courses
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. 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.
