Aegon Ilkley Trophy 2017 Volunteers Wanted!
17th – 25th June 2017
Would you like to be part of this years’ Aegon Ilkley Trophy tennis tournament?
There are lots of ways in which you can help by becoming a ‘Friend of the Tournament’.
The Friends will provide the volunteer workforce for the event. This year we are hoping to recruit about 250 volunteers and there are roles to suit everyone; ranging from car park stewards to children’s activity assistants and stand stewards.
Shifts will be 3 hours long and times required will depend on the area you would like to help in.
All new volunteers will be invited to an information event on 2nd April, where everyone will be briefed on the duties involved for each area.
After enrolment, volunteers will be given basic training, receive kit to wear during the tournament and allowed to watch the tennis after their shift has finished.
Volunteer recruitment forms are available now at Reception. Please complete a men’s or ladies form and return by hand to Reception. If you require any further information please contact Carol Cherry, Lead Volunteer on Carolcherry26@gmail.com.
Last year the feedback from the volunteers was overwhelmingly positive, many commented on what a wonderful experience it was, rubbing shoulders with top players that normally only grace the grass courts of Wimbledon; and the joy of being part of such an incredible event in Ilkley.
The deadline for volunteer recruitment is 15th April, so don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a world class but very friendly tennis event. Fill in a form now!
