TAMPA BAY TENNIS wants energetic people to fill several Ambassador positions. Ambassadors play an important part in representing the magazine within the tennis community and helping to promote tennis throughout Tampa Bay.

All Ambassadors will receive a byline in the magazine recognizing them as a TAMPA BAY TENNIS team member.

    A Writer/Reporter Ambassador will assist the publisher/editor with research and reporting, fact-checking articles, and writing stories for both print and web. They will have an interest in the local tennis community, be detail-oriented, responsible, and knowledgeable about tennis. Regardless of your background in writing, you may still contribute to the team by interviewing people and collecting information for articles.
  • PHOTOGRAPHER A Photographer Ambassador will own a digital camera that produces high quality resolution images. The photographer will travel locally to take pictures of tennis players, clubs and gear, as well as creative and abstract photos representing the sport. The images will be used for print and web.

    TAMPA BAY TENNIS is looking for Ambassadors who are outgoing and have an interest in attending events to help promote the publication. In many cases, the Ambassador would assist in booth or table display set-up, magazine distribution, data collection, and general assistance. The Ambassador should be energetic, dependable and outgoing – strong qualities that many recreational tennis players possess.

Calling all writers and photographers – or hobbyist-journalists – we want to read your stories and view your images! Now’s not the time to be shy. Get involved and you may find your work published in the quality pages of TAMPA BAY TENNIS! Here are a few rules and guidelines: when submitting photography, include a caption that details the location, date, people, and any other important information that will help add context to the image; article topics are broad and have a wide range of word counts. Here are some guidelines:

  • BRIEF TIDBITS [50-250 words] are normally a short story or quote that is funny, inspirational, a “love match” tennis couple profile, event results and accomplishments, a great photo with caption, a pro hitting tip, player profile, etc. Anything goes – use your imagination and creativity, go ahead and get “wild and crazy” [to a point!] – we want your involvement!
  • SHORT FEATURES [350-600 words] are articles that require more words and space than a BRIEF TIDBIT to tell the full story. The article has a title, subtitle, pull quotes, and maybe a side box of information to complement the meat of the article. The SHORT FEATURE might include several quotes from locals to help round out the article and to add depth, validity, and entertainment. Please include corresponding photography if possible.
  • LONG FEATURES [600-1200] are complex in nature and therefore require more words to complete the story. Writers should apply the same guidelines as those mentioned for SHORT FEATUERS. The difference being LONG FEATURES require more words to fully round-out and complete the feature. Please include corresponding photography if possible.
