Would you like to be an chair umpire for a international tournament? Are you between the ages of 16 and 24?
Kungens Kanna & Drottningens Pris is one of the world’s oldest and most traditional tennis tournaments. The 110th event will take place February 2015 as a Tennis Europe Junior Tour under 14 event. The highest level, Category 1.
We have very high ambitions for this tournament, we plan to have umpires in all main draw matches.
KLTK and the Swedish Tennis Association are therefore looking for young umpires (mainly aged 16-24) preferably active as chair umpires in their home clubs.
The accepted participants will follow the below program:
- A two day education from Sunday 22nd to Monday 23rd of February.
- We will, if necessary, implement both a elite umpiring and federation umpiring education.
- Umpire duties from Tuesday 24th – Sunday 28th of February. Around 3-4 matches per day.
International rules and material will be in English. Instructors and course leaders are active internationally as the ITF Certified Officials at various different levels. Teaching and education is in Swedish and/or in English.
The tournament is played on eight tennis courts at the Royal Tennis Hall in Stockholm.
All participants have a fee of SEK 2000 including free lunch and dinner at the club restaurant. The aim for this education is for the successful participants to be offered umpire jobs in other tournaments as part of an ongoing tennis umpire career.
The who do not live in Stockholm will receive free accommodation and breakfast at Elite Hotels.
