All umpires are encouraged to appraise colleagues at any event they attend. Any comments should be submitted to A template for these comments will shortly be available on the Resources section of the Members Area. However, all comments should include the name and grade of both appraiser and appraisee, and details of the event attended (Date, Event name), as well as details of the type of match appraised (if appropriate).

Comments may refer to a specific incident, specific match or multiple matches over the course of the event.


The Officers and Committee have determined that we do not require a formal Data Protection Officer, but the recommendation of the ICO is for us to nominate a person responsible for data protection. This will be a Member of the Association, independent of the Committee, who has some knowledge of the GDPR and can periodically monitor the use of data from the Association's Membership database to ensure compliance with the GDPR.

Member Responsible for Data Protection: S. Dart
