Volunteers needed for annual Tiburon Challenger tournament

Volunteers are needed for both on- and off-court duties when the 11th annual $100,000 Tiburon Challenger tennis tournament returns to the Tiburon Peninsula Club Sept. 23-Oct. 1.

The nine-day tournament features emerging men's pro-circuit players from around the world while offering several special events focused on locals.
Tournament organizers are seeking volunteers for off-court jobs, such as checking players in at the tournament desk, assisting ball people and tournament officials at the upper court volunteer station and assisting with ticket sales, ushers, crowd control and hospitality during finals weekend, Sept. 30-Oct. 1. In addition, adults and kids ages 9 and up are needed to serve as ball people throughout the tournament; those who have never worked on-court before must attend a training session at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 22 at the Tiburon Peninsula Club. Students can receive community-service credit for volunteering.

To sign up to volunteer, visit tiburonchallenger.com/volunteer.
The Tiburon Challenger is part of the Association of Tennis Professionals Challenger Tour, which is the level below the association's World Tour. Players in the Challenger Tour are trying to earn enough points to become eligible for the World Tour and the Grand Slam tournaments, which include the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and U.S. Open.

The tournament benefits the Foundation for Reed Schools and the Rotary Club of Tiburon-Belvedere.
