Do you have a passion for cricket? Do you want the best seat in the house?
If you live in the Wellington region and are interested, please contact us. You will be provided with complete training on the Laws of Cricket, as well as the local playing conditions.
Before you go out onto the field we will ensure that you have the required knowledge and techniques to allow you to officiate with confidence and so enjoy the experience. The standardisation system put in place by the New Zealand Umpires and Scorers Association, and used in Wellington, means that you will be able to officiate in matches that match your knowledge and ability. If you decide that you just want to umpire club cricket that’s fine. If you want to try to go further – to officiate in representative games or even international matches – we’ll give you the support to allow you to progress based on your ability.
If you prefer, you can become an official scorer. You will be associated with one of the senior clubs, and will become their official "home" scorer.
Once you are ready to umpire a game of club cricket, you will also be provided a kit, which includes the official shirt, jersey and jacket.
If this sounds like you, or if you just want to ask us some questions about becoming an umpire or scorer in the Wellington area, please contact us.
