Our Umpire Anti-Discrimination Policy provides that all qualified chair umpires will be afforded equal opportunities to chair men’s and women’s matches regardless of their gender or race.
The USTA, where it has the authority to do so, will seek to assign qualified female chair umpires to men’s tournaments and matches in numbers approximating their representation in the qualified pool of applicants available for such tournament and matches.
Furthermore, the USTA, where it has the authority to do so, will seek to assign qualified minority chair umpires to matches, including later-round matches, in numbers approximating their demographic representation in the qualified pool of applicants available for such matches.
The USTA will urge USTA Pro Circuit tournament officials and the chief umpires assigned to such tournaments to do the same.
