We have two volunteer roles that need to be filled.

Scorekeepers: If you are interested in volunteering as a scorekeeper we require that you are familiar with the rules and scoring system of tennis.

Ball Runner: If you are not familiar with the rules of tennis; you are still welcome to volunteer as a ball runner! As a ball runner, you will be tasked with retrieving the balls for the players between each point during a match. If you sign up, we will provide you with more detailed instructions on how to ball run.
