Would you like to be on the court with tennis superstars like Coco Vandeweghe, Shelby Rogers, Eugenie Bouchard, Sofia Kennin, and more? As part of the CCTC Ball Crew, YOU will be part of the amazing on-court action at the Central Coast Tennis Classic!
The Ball Crew is an essential part of the tournament. The players and officials rely on them to keep the flow of the match going.
Ball Crew applicants will be provided with an online Ball Crew Manual which explains in detail everything that is expected of you on and off court. In addition, you will be provided with training videos that demonstrate our procedures. We encourage you to take advantage of these resources prior to attending our in-person Ball Crew training sessions. We encourage Ball Crew members to attend as many training sessions as possible, in addition to the two mandatory sessons during the week prior to the tournament.
During the week of the tournament, members of the Ball Crew will receive a credential for entry to the tournament plus complimentary admission for immediate family, as well as Ball Crew uniform (shirt and hat or visor). In addition, you will receive a meal allowance for each shift you take. Middle School and High School students may apply Ball Crew volunteer time towards CSF community service hours!
See Ball Crew participation requirements, below.
To be a member of this year's CCTC Ball Crew please complete the online Ball Crew Application.
The Volunteer Coordinator will confirm receipt of your application now, and reach out to soon with training information and scheduling.
Thank you for your help!
