In the last decade New Zealand has been at the cutting edge of umpiring with most World Champs or World Cup competitions having A Grade Umpires in most rings. How has this been possible? It all starts with the grass-roots courses for new umpires held throughout the country several times each year. This video is an introductory course held for new (and experienced) umpires. It contains all you need to know to get started in ITF Umpiring and contains essential information for competitors.
Please note: This course was conducted in compliance with the ITF Tournament Rules. Rules may vary in your country, so we recommend you also attend umpire training provided by your own organisation.
