Umpire chairs are great for tennis matches but they can serve other purposes as well.
Remember the movie The Sandlot? The beautiful lifeguard, Wendy Peffercorn, watched over the kids in the pool from the top of her umpire chair.
No matter what you do with an umpire chair, officiate tennis matches or use it as a lifeguard tower, it is important to do your research before you purchase.
Tennis umpire chairs are typically about eight feet tall, giving umpires or lifeguards a good view to make good calls or save a swimmer in need of some assistance.
Many sports equipment retailers, like Courtmaster and Gamma, offer umpire chairs that are made to last.
The Courtmaster PVC Umpire Chair is multi-functional; perfect for tennis courts, golf tees, and pools or basically anywhere a judge is needed.
