Umpire Development

Our local umpires association has an appointed tutor, Wendy Suttie, who is available to assist anyone interested in becoming an umpire. Interested players can get in touch with Wendy via the contact page on this website. Simply fill in the form with your contact information and Wendy will get back to you to talk about training and becoming an accredited umpire.

World Bowls has a framework documented outlining the requirements for umpire development around the world. The framework covers all aspects of becoming an umpire from club level to international.
