Be a Barclays Ball Kid!

Barclays are looking for the next squad of 30 Barclays Ball Kids to share the spotlight at the 2012 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals at The O2 London this November.

The Barclays Ball Kids programme is a nationwide ‘X Factor’ style search to find the country’s best ball kids. There are 14 Regional Trials being held around the UK starting Saturday 21st January. The Plymouth Regional Trial will be held on Saturday 3rd March with the successful kids from here progressing to the National Selection Trials in April from which the final squad of 30 Barclays Ball Kids will be chosen.

Entrants should be aged  between 12 – 16 years of age and live in the UK.

Notes from John Worsley

Early in the application process you will be told…
“The Barclays ATP World Tour Finals takes place during term time (5th – 12th November 2012) so if you are selected as one of the final 30 Barclays Ball Kids, you will need permission from your school to participate in the event.”

You will also need your parent or guardian’s permission to take part.
