June 19, 2017 09:30 AM

GF Sports is ready to engage some of Long Island's finest sports marketing-minded types to be part of the New York Open event team.  This ATP Tour tournament will be held at Nassau Coliseum (NYCB-LIVE!) February 10-18, 2018.  The Team is being put together NOW to support a summer and fall promotional and operational push.   Roles include:

  1. Brand Ambassadors:  We need everyone on Long Island as well as the New York-metropolitan area to know that the New York Open and world-class ATP Tour tennis is back.  We are bringing back the love to the market, and successful candidates will be responsible for engaging tennis, fitness, country clubs as well as general sports and recreation facilities to et the word out and support sales and promotional activities.  
  2. Tennis Pro Ambassadors:  We need to provide the greatest immersive experience for youth, adult, corporate and other special groups that will potentially participate at pre-tournament promotions starting in the summer and leading up to and including the actual tournament week.  Well connected tennis professionals interested to serve as clinic ambassadors and organizers will be needed.
  3. Event Managers:  We are interested to find event management types that have experience in the marketing, promotion and operation of various elements of major entertainment events.  Full-time and part-time roles may be available for candidates that love tennis, understand the needs associated with event management and would be passionate about making the New York Open the best event experience in the United States.
All interested parties should send via e-mail a cover letter and resume to Josh Ripple at jripple@gfsportsholdings.com.
