We 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.
- Junior and adult tournaments
- State high school championships

- Collegiate matches
- National championships

- Tour-level events
