Got a budding tennis star? Here's a perfect summer job. Your child can try out to be the next ball person for the 2010 US Open! I got the news from my connections at Polo Ralph Lauren. PRL will again be the official outfitter for the US Open Ballpersons uniform. And I've got the inside scoop--they're on the hunt for 80 kids.
Prospective ballpersons will be evaluated by US Open officials on their running, throwing and catching skills. Children ages 14 and older are eligible to try out. US Open ballpersons are paid an hourly wage. The 2010 US Open qualifying draw will be held Tuesday, August 24, through Friday, August 27. The 2010 US Open main draw will be held Monday, August 30, through Sunday, September 12.
