As the English section of Ubitennis continues to grow, we have opened the door for more writers to join our site. Previous journalistic experience would be advantageous, but not essential. We offer aspiring writers the chance to get the ball rolling in the business and to hone their skills.
Ubitennis had 41 million page views in 2019 and has been a specialist database contributor to the ATP media guide since 2012. Founder Ubaldo Scanagatta has worked in tennis journalism for almost 44 years and has transformed Ubitennis from a little-known site to a powerhouse in the tennis world.
Ubitennis has reported live from over 100 Grand Slam tournaments and is also one of the very few tennis sites in that world to provide comprehensive tennis coverage in English, Spanish, and Italian. Furthermore, it has enjoyed partnerships with other renowned media figures, including New York Times journalist Ben Rothenberg, legendary American tennis commentator Steve Flink and columnist James Beck.
Ubitennis.net is looking for applicants who have a passion for tennis and know the difference between a drop shot and a smash. It is essential that candidates have a good standard of English writing skills as well as a solid understanding of tennis and an up-to-date awareness of what is currently occurring on the ATP and WTA tours.
New writers will embark upon a trial period with the site, where they will be introduced to the site and given guidance with their work. Once the trial period is passed, writers will be eligible to receive payment for their work providing it meets the guidelines.
Starting in sports journalism can be one of the hardest tasks to do for new writers and Ubitennis has the ability to help by giving writers a platform to display their work to a growing audience. Specifically, the website’s articles have a significant amount of exposure, since they are included almost daily in Intennis, a mailing list that comprises some of the most respected publications in the world, such as ESPN.com, atptour.com, The New York Times, and The Guardian.
