The women state tennis event concluded recently and one factor noticeably abdespatched On the event have been officers. Typinamey, in tennis, gamers abide by the “code” and name Their very personal strains. However, On the state event the place the stakes are greater having 3-4 roving officers current helps reassure each gamers And mom and father that it’s a diploma having fun with area. The position of the officers is to overrule poor line names, settle any disputes, and act as a line decide on a courtroom.
Tennis Isn’t a income producing sport. However, a Daily gate is collected from spectators at state Which might cowl The worth of the event officers. So money is a non problem. So then What’s?
Starting in early Might A gaggle Of mom and father sought to have officers On the state event. These mom and father contacted NDHSAA staff to make their considerations acknowledged. These mom and father additionally reached out to recurrentatives On the USTA Northern Part office to request An inventory of officers in ND To current to the NDHSAA staff. But nofactor was carried out on their behalf. No names or e-mails have been positioned to any of the licensed officers in ND (collectively with myself). All of the above is in contradiction to the NDHSAA regulation stipulating 3-4 officers be current On the state event.
The scarcity of effort and consideration for the tennis scholar athletes, mom and father, and spectators by the NDHSAA is appalling and unfortunate. These mom and father have been asking for A pair of officers to be current For 3 days. Not An monumental ask by any means. I would like to see the NDHSAA do A greater job with the state tennis event.
