Volunteering to umpire events:  Umpires, including provisional umpires, are encouraged to volunteer directly to the chief umpire for any tournament they wish to work.  Provisional umpires may be partnered with a certified official when only one roving official is required.  Chief umpires will wish to know your name, telephone number(s), e-mail address, and certification information (including chair certification where chairs are needed).  Provisional umpires should identify themselves as such.  Chief umpires will notify those umpires assigned to an event as soon as possible, but umpires should realize that chief umpires may not receive final confirmation of a club's umpiring needs until one week prior to the event.  Please contact the chief umpire if your availability changes before that time.  Feel free to contact chief umpires to check on the status of an event. Verify with the chief umpire on report time as the report time may change depending on the size of the draw.

Online input for Code Violations Referees: Please visit "Forms" tab to the left to start learning the new procedures.

Congratulations to the following winners of the annual umpire award announced at the party.

  • Rookie Umpire of the Year: Tomasz Czarnota
  • Co-Line Umpires of the Year: Jim Koukol and Adriane Welker
  • Chair Umpire of the Year: Marilyn Goldman
  • See their photos on the Awards link
    Tournaments starting in March will list Match Time instead of Report Time to minimize constant conversion from Tennis Link Input. Your Chief Umpire is responsible for determining actual Report Time usually about 30 minutes before the first match time.
    Be sure to complete the SafeSport online class and exams - You must complete this before you can pass your background screening for 2015 recertification. It may take up to two hours to complete, but you can start and stop and restart where you left off at a later time. more info
