When there are 12 courts running for three days it takes a lot of scorekeepers to help out. We ask that you volunteer to help us to at least score two matches. If you have friends, with you please encourage them to help out, it would be greatly appreciated. Referee Class 101 will run Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings from 8:00am-8:30am, please attend to learn how to be a referee, even if it is to brush up on some things.
