Become an Official

Individuals interested in becoming an official must first take the online test for Provisional Officials.   After passing this test, the Chicago Tennis Umpires Council (CTUC) will include your name as a new provisional and email you monthly information on tournaments that you can sign up to work, alongside of an experienced official, to start "learning the ropes. 

You may also attend a USTA Sectional School (one day).  These are offered primarily during the first few months of each year, and individuals must take the provisional test prior to attending such a school.   Go to http://chicagotennisofficials.org   for the online Provisional Umpire test. 

As new classes are scheduled throughout the year, the dates and locations will be added to this website.
