New Umpires
The latest Umpires Course was completed and as always the Exam was very demanding. Candidates must achieve the pass mark of 80% in the four elements which comprise the exam, the Written paper, the Multiple Choice paper, the Oral test and the Measuring exercises.

The standard of the candidates has proved to be very high and congratulations go to Bill Neal, Clive Nuttall, Eoghain O'Bradaigh and John Wilson.

Markers Course
There will be a new Umpires Course being run in early 2023 by Ron Jones.
Anyone wishing to join can get more details from Roy Saunders

The UMA holds courses and exams for both Markers and Umpires throughout the year, as well as regular meetings to engage and refresh the knowledge of current Members.

They have a duty to provide Umpires and Markers for all Federation Events as well as for Federated Tournaments run by the Clubs themselves.
All Clubs are encouraged to have their Members sign up for courses, at no charge to the Clubs or those taking the course.

More dates for 2023 Umpires Courses will soon be announced.
