Is your tennis racquet a member of the family? Do you love to tinker with your frames and experiment with the latest strings and equipment? Has this been a passion of yours since you hit your first forehand? Then TENNIS magazine and TENNIS.com want you to be a racquet tester for us.
We’re looking for candidates with extensive background in the tennis industry. You can be a teaching pro, retailer, former high-level player, racquet tech, or a combination of all four. It doesn’t matter as long as you have comprehensive knowledge of racquets and are willing to share it with our readers. This is not an invitation for a bit of fun with free tennis racquets—only conscientious people who would treat this opportunity as a serious responsibility need apply.
If selected to be a racquet tester, you will be sent numerous frames from all the major manufacturers before they hit the market. You will be responsible to give them a thorough testing and report back what you find. You can put them in the hands of fellow racquet nuts, customers, students, or whoever can help you formulate your opinions. Your evaluations will be featured in the pages of the 2014 TENNIS magazine Racquet Guide and on TENNIS.com. Supply us with detailed, informed feedback and you can look forward to receiving racquets, strings, and other gear to test throughout the year.
If you’re interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining why you think you meet the criteria to be one of our racquet testers. Attaching a resume to the email is strongly encouraged. Qualified candidates will be contacted to arrange a phone interview to discuss the position further before a final decision is made. The deadline to apply is October 11.
We look forward to hearing from you.
