Awsome Work Experience at Australian Open
2017 Ballpark Volunteer at Australian Open (Current Employee) – Melbourne VIC – 4 April 2018
My time working for Tennis Australia on the Australian Open, really opened my eyes to seeing that educating kids on a great sport, and one that I had been playing since 2005.
A typical day for me was getting to the Australian Open through Public Transport, being informed about the rostered routine for the day, and setting up the activities.
Also, it was ensuring that all the families that entered the Ballpark, enjoyed their time and left feeling lucky that I was able to inspire the next generation to continue with tennis.
Even though it was a volunteer position, TA went over and above to ensure that we all obtained a meal allowance each day, tickets to exclusive staff seats to tennis matches and finally, staff access to the best tournament for tennis in the world.
