Certified officials are involved in the game of tennis in a variety of roles, ranging from overseeing local junior, adult or senior tournaments to collegiate events to officiating on court at professional tournaments like the US Open. The USTA and the USTA Southern Section offer an ongoing program for the recruitment and training of new officials throughout the year.

In an effort to promote good behavior and sportsmanship in junior tennis, we have started the "Great Sports" program at select junior tournaments throughout Tennessee. Officials and Tournament Directors will now be able to award good behaviour by presenting pins to juniors who exemplify exceptional sportsmanship during a match or entire tournament.
Officials may use their discretion when selecting pin recipients. THey may also act on parent or player recommendations for other children. Officials will be asked to document the name, age group, and event when a pin is awarded, and a description for why that particular player was chosen. Recipients will be eligible for the annual sportsmanship awards given at the Tennessee Tennis Weekend in Nashville in February (please note: a junior player may still win an annual award without winning a pin during the year).
Please email award recipients to: Tyler Strong (email@example.com).
