Court Monitor (Adult League Only)

Court Monitors are not certified officials. They assume limited duties to help ensure fair and sportsmanlike play at sites lacking sufficient number of certified officials.

DUTIES OF A COURT MONITOR:

  • Maintain control over assigned courts;

  • Measure the net at the beginning of the first match and at other appropriate times.

  • Time warm-ups, when possible, announce “two minute” at two minutes before the end of warm-up, and announce “time” when play is to begin;

  • Call foot faults, remembering that there is never a warning;

  • Stop play when the monitor observes a Code Violation and seek assistance from the Referee or other official;

  • Settle scoring disputes on a limited basis;

  • Overrule clear mistakes if authorized to do so by the Referee (correct outcalls);

  • Time rest periods;

  • Record scores of matches if requested;

  • Inform the desk of open courts and of the progress of matches in play;

  • Send for a certified official if there is a question of rule interpretation;

  • Call the score if assigned to only one court.

    Contact Jim Lawson or Liz Baker, if you need a court monitor.
