Age Specific Online Referee Exam

A unique aspect of junior squash is that tournament players are required to act as the referee for any matches that follow theirs on court – by signing up to play in a tournament, players are also agreeing to act as a referee throughout the event. To that point, it is important that all players know and understand the rules of squash.

Players who participate in accredited junior tournaments will need to take and pass the online referee exam before signing up for a tournament.

Age Group Exam Required

The age approrpiate referee exam can be found on a player’s Club Locker profile.

By selecting the “My Profile” page, click the small right arrow ‘>’ under the renew membership section, which will allow you to scroll across to find the “Training” section. Select the training tab and the correct test can be accessed in the Available Exams section.
