LATEST VOLUNTEER OPPORTUITIES

Please see below our latest volunteering opportunities:

Visually Impaired National Championships (6 – 8 October 2017 – Loughborough University)

This October, the National Visually Impaired Tennis Championships are taking place at Loughborough University Tennis Centre.  The players have competed in 6 regional tournaments in order to qualify for this year’s Championships.  We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help contribute towards the smooth running of this exciting tournament.  As well as needing General Volunteers, we have identified some key, dedicated roles that we are keen to put in place to improve the experience of the tournament for everyone.  Lunch and a volunteer t-shirt will be provided.

  • Player Liaison – Finding and informing players that they are required on court for their match
  • Court Monitor – Working alongside the Player Liaison, the court monitor will be watching matches on court to see when they finish so that players are ready for the next match
