Court Officials play an integral part in badminton. They help to make sure that games are played in as fair a manner as possible. WA is lucky to 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.
From time to time we hold Technical 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.
