Refereeing

Squash Auckland holds regular Rules Evenings where players can learn about the rules of squash in a fun, informative session which include Q&A's where you can ask for answers to those questions you've always wanted to know.  Keep an eye out for the details of upcoming Rules Nights.

We also recommend all players to complete the online Club Referee exam. This is a great starting point for both new and experienced players to ensure you can be confident of the rules.  The Club Referee qualification is valid for two years from the date of completion.
