The Rome Tennis Center at Berry College and the Rome Sports Commission are seeking volunteers for the ACC men’s and women’s tennis championships in April. Volunteers would be needed in various departments like logistics, ticketing, parking, hospitality, media services and merchandise sales during the event April 25-30.
“As ‘directors of first impressions,’ our ACC ambassadors will be the heart of the tournament,” says Ann Hortman, sports commission director, who is coordinating the volunteer effort for the tournament.
Requirements for volunteering include the following:
- All volunteers are required to commit to a minimum of 24 hours between April 22 and May 1. Shifts will include pre-event setup, tournament days and post-event breakdown and cleanup.
- Start and end times of shifts can vary due to weather delays and changes in match schedule, therefore, flexibility in a volunteer’s shift schedule is necessary.
- All volunteers must attend a mandatory orientation session the week prior to the tournament; two sessions will be offered.
- Volunteers must be 18 years of age.
