Friends of the Aegon Ilkley Trophy 2017

Do you want to be a part of it? Find out how below!

For this year’s tournament we hope to recruit almost 200 Volunteers, so that we can provide cover from 9am to 9pm!

There are many roles on offer from Car park assistants, Ticket & Programme assistants, Ground & Stand stewards, Kidszone assistants and Drivers.

The Volunteers are needed from 14th – 25th June and you can sign up for 1 – 2 shifts each day (minimum required is 3 shifts/volunteer).

All new Volunteers are required to attend the Information event on Sunday 9th April 1-2pm; a 2 hour Training session on 7, 9 or 11 May and a Site briefing on either 11, 12 or 13 June.

For those that have volunteered in previous years, they will be invited to an Information event and Uniform collection session on Wednesday 10 May 6 – 8.30pm. They will be required to attend a Site Briefing on either 11, 12 or 13 June.

In return all Volunteers will be given a Uniform; provided with the necessary equipment and instruction to carry out the roles; and given food and drink vouchers during the shifts; and encouraged to stay on before/after the shift to watch the tennis. Also all Volunteers and partners will be invited to a Volunteer celebration event on 23 June.

Anyone can apply to become a Volunteer (minimum age 16 years), Club members and non-members, members of other Tennis clubs and the local Community. During the last 2 years many Volunteers have made new friends, watched some amazing tennis and had lots of fun at Ilkley LTSC. This is a great opportunity for you to be part of the biggest Aegon Trophy event in the UK!

Forms are now available at the Club Reception or download from the link below. The deadline for Recruitment is 15 April.
