WTA/ATP/ITF Summer Internships

Hi guys, so I wasn't sure exactly where to post this but just curious if anyone has applied to/or had an internship with the WTA, ATP, or ITF? And if so if you could give some insight on the whole process and what you did. I'm a junior at U of M double majoring in economics and communication studies and the more I think about what I want to do for the rest of my life, it just all goes back to tennis. In a dream world I would love to work in marketing/business operations for a pretty big tournament. I'm planning on applying to some of the summer internships these organizations have to offer, right now I have heard about 4. I'm sure they're really competitive though. So again, any help or experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Re: WTA/ATP/ITF Summer Internships

My advice would be contacting tournaments and seeing if they have any programs. Or people who contract with those tournaments. There are also brand ambassador opportunities. I know Lacoste was looking this year for Brand Ambassadors to wear Lacoste around the site and direct them to the store.

You can apply to jobs there, and sign up for internship notification - though I've been on that list for two years now and haven't gotten anything

The Cincinnati tournament and the Washington Kastles have job listings on teamworkonline.com more often, which a lot of MLB teams use as well if you're interested in that. WTT and the US Open Series/US Open are more likely to hire for the summer for internships. The USTA US Open office is HQ'ed in Westchester I believe, so you'll be working out of the city for most of the summer until the tournament rolls around

The WTA is headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida, and the ATP in Ponte Vedra Beach, so I assume you'd have to live/work around there. I'm personally looking for a legal/law-related internship, and the firm the WTA uses is a large one in DC, which is probably out of my reach at the moment anyway.

Thank you.
Out of curiosity, has anyone here found any luck working with the tennis organizations?
