24 Oct Referee Courses planned in Limerick LTC and Hilden TC
The referee course was designed in alliance with the Irish Tennis Umpires Association (ITUA) and in response to a demand from clubs for support in the area of tournament officiating. It was first delivered in May of this year and has been further modified for tournament officials taking into consideration the course feedback from these first candidates. The aim of the course is to provide candidates with the knowledge and expertise that will promote fair play and effective refereeing, a role that primarily rests with club volunteers.
The course will be presented by Fergus Murphy Ireland’s Gold Badge Chair Umpire and full-time ATP Tour Umpire and Maria Kilkelly ITF White Badge Referee and also full-time Competitions Coordinator with Tennis Ireland.
Tennis Ireland is committed to assisting clubs in running events in a fair manner, providing the best playing conditions and ensuring that the rules are applied in a fair and consistent manner. This is based on a sound knowledge of the rules and applying them in a consistent way.
