Volunteer Opportunities at VCO - Win Tickets to the US Open!

Please let all of your friends know that we have spots available to volunteer for the USTA membership booth and Net Generation court (no skills needed other than the enjoyment of working with children).  All volunteers will have access to the grounds and therefore viewing tennis on their breaks. 

And as an added bonus – all volunteers who complete their shift will be put into a drawing for two US Open tickets – day and session of their choice.  Multiple shifts gives you multiple chances!!!  Also, all volunteers that recruit friends will have added chances at winning the US Open tickets – sign up 2 friends gives you one additional  chance – bring 4 and you get a total of 3 chances and it grows from there.  Please have your friends reference your name in the comment box on the sign-up sheet.

We welcome all for the Net Generation Court – Ducky – make sure you recruit your fellow students!  We will happily sign any community service documents needed.
