Court Officials play an integral part in badminton. They help to make sure that games are played in as fair a manner as possible. Here in WA we have a very good team of dedicated officials who give up their own free time to volunteer to help out at tournaments across Australia and Internationally as well in their various roles.
Court Officials normally cover roles such as Line Judging, Umpiring & Refereeing. There are various levels and for each level there are exams to sit and pass (both practical and theory). We are very lucky in WA to have very experienced Officials, in fact Internationally qualified, in all 3 roles!
From time to time we hold Formal Officials Courses that will allow those who may be interested a chance to get to know the Laws of Badminton better or take the first steps towards becoming a qualified Line Judge, Umpire or Referee. Please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to know more or register your interest for a future course.
