Officiating is a fantastic way to get involved in the development and growth of Table Tennis. Our sport provides courses for a diverse range of accreditation levels to ensure that we will have a structured course to suit your officiating requirements, goals, and personal aspirations.

Table Tennis officials are divided into two separate categories, Umpires, and Referees. The Umpire's responsibility is to control the particular match, whilst the Referee's responsibility is to oversee and control a tournament.

The National Table Tennis Officiating Scheme is coordinated through Table Tennis Queensland and Table Tennis Australia. We manage and coordinate several accreditation levels through which members can progress through. There is a variety of officiating qualifications available that focus on all skill levels to guarantee we fulfill your needs and requirements.

We offer introductory courses that cover the basic skills required for officiating at Club Level tournaments, right through to State and National Courses and International Courses that are aimed at officials looking to develop skills that will enable them to officiate at Higher and Elite Level Tournaments.

Table Tennis Queensland manages and organises the Association, State, and National Umpiring Courses as well as State Referees Courses as required throughout Queensland. All the higher-level courses are run by our National Sporting body, Table Tennis Australia in conjunction with the International Table Tennis Federation.


Table Tennis Queensland conducts several Officiating Courses throughout the year for our Queensland Members.
