National Umpire Course

The U&T Committee ITF-Belgium has several tasks. One of them is to form new umpires and to keep the existing referees updated. To do this the committee is organising several umpire courses a year. On Sunday September 29th 2019 in Oostakker the chairman and members of the U&T Committee conducted a beginners course in the morning, followed by an advanced course in the afternoon. On both sessions a lot of members ITF-Belgium were present.

The course consisted of both a theoretical and an practical part. At the end of the seminar the participants all received a certificate.
