THE PLAYERS volunteer registration open through Friday, April 8


For the upcoming THE PLAYERS Championship, tournament officials announced today that volunteer registration will remain open through Friday, April 8. Anyone in the Northeast Florida area and nationwide is encouraged to apply to become one of the roughly 2,100 volunteers that make THE PLAYERS possible.

Volunteers at THE PLAYERS will be placed into committees, with jobs ranging from on-course duties like acting as a Marshal during the tournament to other support roles assisting players and fans. The two committees still yet to be filled for THE PLAYERS 2016 are Corporate Hospitality and Tournament Support. Corporate Hospitality volunteers provide information and assistance to corporate clients and ensure that only properly credentialed clients are permitted in private hospitality areas, as well as assist Marshals with noise control when players approach hospitality areas. Tournament Support volunteers handle ropes in the practice area to allow players to move freely during the week, as well as provide support to the equipment representatives and various hospitality venues. These volunteers also may be asked to assist with situations that require special attention, including escorting players, providing services to guests with disabilities and other issues that arise.

For the week, volunteers at THE PLAYERS pay a fee of $75, which covers the cost of the uniform (tournament branded shirt and headwear), as well as a credential that is good for the entire week. All youth volunteer positions have been filled.
