A good number of officials that call sporting events are former players themselves, or at least they play the game during their leisure time, and sometimes, they just went to show off their skills on the court.
That’s exactly what happened during a recent Legend’s Doubles match, when a chair umpire elected to trade places with a player, so he himself cook play a few points.
And, not only that, he was pretty solid — hitting a few beautiful shots, which the crowd absolutely loved, as you can see in the video clip below.
Awesome. It’s moments like that that are what sports are all about.
