At last – I am officially a USTA official! The proof arrived in the mail yesterday – my USTA Official shirt. Now, I can go to tournaments, spout off tennis rules and the consequences for their violation AND get paid for doing it!
Just in case you're getting very excited about my future as a USTA official, calm down. I am only qualified to be a roving official – the lowest of the low. I'll have to work at several tournaments and probably go to another school to move up. But I'm on my way!
And how will you benefit from all of this? I plan on letting you know every weird tennis rule violation, every strange match situation, every horrifying player etiquette blunder I come across. Should be fun!
