All teams have to provide umpires, since the teams
from one league umpire the matches played by opposite league. Every match
is overseen by two umpires. Each team has a set of umpire 'slots' as part
of the fixtures. Failure of a team to provide an umpire at the allotted
time is regarded as very bad form and carries an automatic points penalty.
Umpiring? Who does that then?
You're a star! Umpires are always needed.
If you've played in the previous season and you have a good
knowledge of the rules, you should be o.k. to do this.
I'd like to have a try at umpiring
On the day, what do I need to umpire?
- A copy of the rules (see the Download section)
- A clipboard
- A watch
- Something to write with
