Note: To be added by an organization for a particular tournament in Serve Tennis, you will need to accept the invite from that Serve Tennis venue website. This invite is generated as a tournament is created and sent to the person selected as the Tournament Director for that tournament. Accepting this invite will add that Tournament Director to the contacts with the role of 'Tournament Director'.
If you are already a contact at the venue, the venue administrator will need to ensure the Tournament Director is listed as a tournament director or Tournament Administrator in their profile. Further details are available here: How to Add an Administrator to Your Account
