Welcome to Beyond the Boundary!

January 19th, 2024

Our first bulletin concentrates on the current opportunities, courses and support that is available to umpires and scorers. Without qualified umpires and scorers we just wouldn’t be able to “Get the Game On” so we encourage all clubs to forward this information on to any of your members who maybe interested in taking their first steps into cricket officiating 


INTERESTED IN BECOMING A CRICKET UMPIRE OR SCORER IN HERTFORDSHIRE?

Come along to an introductory meeting to find out how to get started and what opportunities there are for umpires and scorers at all levels. This event is open to anyone who may be interested in supporting cricket by umpiring or scoring at any level, from junior softball to adult cricket, regardless of their current experience of, or involvement with, the sport. Everyone is welcome, however please note that there is an age restriction of 14 or older for men or women to begin umpiring. This doesn’t mean young people below this age can’t come to the meeting to find out about the role of an umpire. There are no age restrictions for young scorers.
