I passed umpires exam last year and with that exam I can work as the chair umpire or linesman. I will attend referees course when I collect 200 matches in he chair, and I umpired 70.

thanks. I was tight during the first matches I umpired and I wanted the match would be finished quickly. I don't care for match duration now.

Good luck anyway for your tournament
I don't put my real name in public. and none knows me in the ITF. They can't do anything bad to me becase I'm just national umpire and not ITF official.

Re: I will umpire my first professional tournament!

I umpired 3 days in a row at the national championships U14. I was 7 hours in the chair yesterday but just 2 hours today. I will be a linesman for the final tomorrow. A father of a player insulted to my mate complained about some calls and She is bronze badge chair umpire. Poor people should become the umpires because you get food, drinks and money.

You don't need any studies for that. You just have to finish umpires course in 3 days and pass an exam. You must be at least 16 years old to attend umpires course. In Croatia you have no practical part of exam but
somewhere you have.

If you have any relation with a player (coach, relative, family members, etc.) you must declare it to the national association or the ITF and you may not umpire to that player in the chair or line. You must declare if you work for the company with comercial interest in tennis you must declare too. THe umpires know players because many of umpires are players or former players so IF you drink a coffee with a player thats not forbidden.
