  • it's a tv special about club professionals. – Steve Aug 4 '15 at 14:01
  • Does that mean the club professionals will be players? If so,why not playing? – bib Aug 4 '15 at 14:30
  • Will involve in the... – Eilia Aug 4 '15 at 14:49
  • Needs more context, as others have stated, but "Competing"? – Marv Mills Aug 4 '15 at 14:52

'Take part in' would be my go-to alternative. This brings the same connotation that 'participating in' has, in that it assumes you will be directly involved in the event/activity, instead of just spectating.

Referring to the comments above 'take part in' could apply to a player, caddy, and official. If you wanted to specify a supporting role such as a caddy or official, you could also use 'helping out in' or simply 'supporting in'.

Any additional information might help us find the more specific term.
