Community Officiating Program
Tennis Queensland has identified the current number of officials across the state is alarming. There is a high risk that tournaments will not have accredited officials present in the near future unless we act.
The Officiating Rebate Program is to allow for an incentive for affiliated clubs to attract and retain club volunteers for the officiating pool
2021 Rebate Program
The rebate guidelines are as follows:
- Clubs nominate club volunteers to become an accredited court supervisor
- Clubs cover costs for their volunteers to acquire screening documents (Police check & Blue card) and pay the initial TA member registration fee
- Volunteers complete online self-paced training modules
- Volunteers then act as court supervisors for their own tournament
- Once a new court supervisor has completed 6 appointed days of work in the role, the club receives a $500 rebate at the EOCY
- The club receives an additional $100 for every 5 further days each new supervisor is appointed
- The Community Officiating pathway provides further opportunities for volunteers to engage in paid officiating roles
* Note only new officials not accredited since 2017 are eligible and clubs need to be affiliated with Tennis Queensland.
