Umpires Committee established
Prompted by increasing concern about line calls and foot-faulting, APTA President Robert Brown formed a committee to advise and recommend steps to cope with these matters. The committee recommended the establishment of an Umpires Committee, whose function would be to post line judges to make out calls and any foot-fault calls.
The APTA concurred with the recommendation. Paul Malloy, Paul Sullivan and Brook Kindred, from Fox Meadow formed the nucleus, along with renowned tennis umpires Jack Stahr and Mike Dunne.
