The BB&T Atlanta Open will host tryouts for ball persons Monday, May 20, and Wednesday, May 22, at the Carl E. Sanders Family YMCA at Buckhead. The YMCA of Metro Atlanta is the primary charitable beneficiary of this year’s tournament.
Ball persons must be 13 years old by July 20, 2013, in order to try out and proof of age is required. All applicants must be able to attend either tryout to be considered for this position. If selected, ball persons must be available for the entire tournament and qualifying, July 20-28, at Atlantic Station.
All applicants must register via the tournament website http://www.bbtatlantaopen.com; ball persons who worked the tournament in 2012 must register but do not have to try out.
Ball persons play a very important role in the overall operation of each match. Their primary job will be to retrieve balls when they are out of play but they must also know how to keep score, move quickly, endure long matches in the sun and work well with others on a team.
