Refereeing Courses

As part of our commitment to raising the standard of refereeing in the province we are requiring all players who play leagues to do a quiz on the basics of the game. This can be accessed here where you can do it as often as you wish until you reach the required standard. Closer to the end of the season we will add a recorded / logged assessment that will show us which clubs have reached the required standard, but you’ll get plenty of notice about that.

You will find other useful refereeing quizzes here.  For now do the quiz and don’t forget to check out the  Rules-of-Squash-2014 now and again!

Munster Squash is happy to offer a Club Grade Referee course to interested players. The cost is €30 per candidate, payable at the first session, covers the course, a copy of the Rules of Squash and the written and practical assessments.
