The Connecticut Open tennis tournament is looking for volunteers for this year's events. Some of the roles available include ball persons, in-stadium ushers, player transporters, and general volunteers.
All volunteers will get a free uniform, which includes two t-shirts, a hat, and a pullover. Volunteers will also receive tickets, meal vouchers, and parking. Volunteer hours can count as community service hours.
“Much of our tournament’s success can be attributed to our dedicated volunteers who help make the event enjoyable for both the fans and players,” said Anne Worcester, tournament director, Connecticut Open presented by United Technologies. “Those involved, receive a behind-the-scenes look at one of Connecticut’s premiere gatherings while obtaining invaluable, resume-boosting experience from an international sporting event.”
Training sessions will be held July, 5, July 16, August 5, and August 6 at the Yale University Tennis Courts from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. To be a ball person, you have to be at least 12 years of age.
