Help & FAQs

How can I progress as an Official?

There is an ABTO (Association of British Tennis Officials) grading structure for Referees, Line Umpires, Chair Umpires and Court Supervisors.  These detail requirements for promotion and can be accessed in the Officials area of the website.  These can be found in the Downloads and Resources tab under the Management Committee Responsibility areas heading under Grading.

Off court Officials (Referees and Court Supervisors) must record all of their work during the year in the Referee Work Card tab of the Officials area.  The deadline to submit all workcards each year is November 15th but it is recommended that this is completed throughout the year after tournaments finish.
