Referee Clinic on Sunday, September 8 from 1:00-4:00

Sean and Leslie, from Inapickle and also EPC members, will conduct a Referee Clinic at the Courts at Royal Gardens on September 8 from 1:00-4:00.  The session will consist of two hours of classroom instruction and one hour of on court practice.

Please note that this is a referee clinic and not a PB rules clinic.  You must be prepared for this clinic by having studied the referee materials and have taken the practice referee test at least once. Please see the links below for study materials:

And here is a PDF of the handbook

Referees are very important to our game and, frankly, we need more members willing to serve as referees.  It is very difficult to run a sanctioned tournament without sufficient referees.  A shortage of referees can slow down the pace of a tournament because matches have to wait until a referee is available.  So, please, help us out – it benefits everyone.

Sign up will be on a Special Sign Up Genius Invite which will go out on Monday, August 20.
