    this weekend i played for the first time with linesmen and umpires. They were in training for next years aussie open. it was so much fun. not that weird though. i thought it would be.
    it was with the academy at melbourne park, so they wanted to give us some experience, as well as them some.

    Did you find that not having to call your own lines takes a bit of weight off your mind? We used to umpire matches during the winter pennant season in Melbourne from State Grade all the way down to Grade 12 I think it was. A bit of fun for all concerned although when you umpire the lower levels you spend three quarters of your time calling either 'fault' or 'out' LOL.
