How does one become an official in international table tennis tournaments?





----- Martin's Reply -----


Glenn,

Thanks for your question.

In order to become an official in international table tennis tournaments, you have to work your way up through the ranks.

You start as an official at local level, then work your way up, passing the relevant exams and practical tests, and then go on to officiating at National and International level.

There are currently 189 qualified International Referees, 314 qualified International Umpires, and 232 qualified Blue Badge Umpires.

Officials are volunteers who just get expenses.
