As you know, the Sun City Shootout Pickleball Tournament is Tuesday, October 31 thru Thursday, November 2, 2017, at the Marionette Center, Sun city, AZ. For this event to run smoothly we will need additional referees each day (Tuesday thru Thursday) from 8 am until about 6 pm. Please consider helping us get the referees we need for this tournament. As of now time slots are available in 2 hour increments starting at 8 am each day.
If you would like to help or would like to add more time slots to your referee commitments, please contact us at Pickleballrefs@gmail.com. Referees who sign up in advance will be paid $4.00(referee) or $6.00(certified referee) for their time.
Specific bracket start times are not yet available, but here’s the event schedule:
· Tuesday – Men’s Doubles
· Wednesday – Mixed Doubles
· Thursday – Women’s Doubles
To make this a great event we need players to referee on the days they are not scheduled to play or after being eliminated from competition.
You can commit to as many days and time slots as you desire. We’ll reply with an e-mail confirming your commitment.
If you know referees who are not playing this event, please ask them to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or go onto Pickleball Tournaments for this event under other information and register as a volunteer.
Your willingness to referee is most appreciated.
