Refereeing Courses

We will be running a refereeing course in Munster over April and May at whatever venues suit the majority of the applicants. The charge for the course is €20 and includes a copy of the rules and the assessments. YOU CAN ENROL HERE ON THE IRISH SQUASH WEBSITE.

Course Description: As Club Grade Referees (World Squash Level 1) successful participants will be qualified to referee internal matches in their clubs and league matches between clubs. With added experience Club Grade Referees (Level 1 World Squash) can progress to Tournament Grade Referee (Level 2 W.S.).

You will need to:

  1. Attend 2, 90-minute course sessions where the rules will be explained and demonstrated.
  2. Familiarise yourself with the Rules and Appendices. (See Refereeing Resources Page)
  3. Test your knowledge and understanding of the rules by taking some of the quizzes on where you can self-assess privately.
  4. Demonstrate your ability to use the appropriate marker and referee ‘calls’ in a practical assessment.
  5. Obtain the ‘Pass’ mark in a written assessment (85%). The ‘written’ assessment is on-line and you can attempt it as often as you like.


You will find useful refereeing quizzes here and the  Rules-of-Squash-2019 here.
