I'm the line umpire at Zagreb Open!

I umpired karlovic and it's really hard, I umpired service line, luckily I didn't make any error.

You have the teams of line umpires and every team has their own schedule. You work an hour and then you have 20 minutes break.

THey pay you 150€ for the whole tournament if you are the line umpire. If you the chair umpire at home tournaments you get 10€ per match and 250€ for the tournament at international tournaments if you are the national chair umpire. (ETA, ITF, WTA, ATP).

Re: I'm the line umpire at Zagreb Open!

Thats great Mane! Its perhaps a nice way to pick up the sport. Is there any minimum age required to qualify for the post?
