Referees

 

New WSO Referee Qualifying system:

Squash needs more referees and it’s never been more convenient!

World Squash Officiating (WSO), the refereeing arm of World Squash, has designed a very attractive and useful website to provide online referee education, training and certification. You will be able to move through the stages of your squash refereeing journey – from the introductory Level 0, to Level 1 (equivalent to previous Irish Squash Club Grade), on to Level 2 (Tournament Grade) then Level 3 (National) and even higher if you have the appetite for it!

The higher levels (from Level 2 onwards) will still require appraisals by WSO assessors and Irish Squash will be working with WSO in that regard. We are delighted to again have the experience of  Joe Ruddy and Brian Williams to help with mentoring emerging referees with help from current Irish Squash Refereeing Secretary, Lee Healy. 

All currently qualified referees are invited to sign up to the WSO website, check out what’s on offer, especially the ‘Learning’ path and complete the qualifications as far as you can get! Irish Squash will cover the fee for all existing Club Grade referees who pass the Level 1 assessment. In addition we will do the same for the first 40 who pass Level 1 as new referees. Just contact the refereeing secretary ([email protected]) for a voucher before you proceed to pay for the qualification (on the website you have to ‘Pass’ before you pay). 


Good refereeing adds to the enjoyment of competitive squash. The resources below will help in that regard.


Current Referees: 

The table below is the most up-to-date list of qualified and active referees so if you believe you should be included and are not, or if you believe your qualification to be inaccurate please contact the Refereeing Secretary (email above).
