Official_GirlsWe need officials!

There are more than 2,500 USTA certified officials in the United States, and we need more. Each year the USTA sanctions and conducts over 8,000 tournaments.

A smooth-running tournament is ensured when it has officials who know the rules and regulations.

We train and certify officials for on-court and off-court assignments at tournaments.

While serving as a referee, chair umpire, chief umpire, rover or line umpire, a tennis official makes sure that a tennis match is conducted under the fairest possible conditions.
