Course Details

The Referee Course is aimed at people with experience of organising competitions who would like to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become a Tennis Referee.

Please be aware that there will be reduced numbers on courses to allow for social distancing and attendees will be required to wear masks throughout the course.


Attendees must be aged 16 or over and must be UK residents.

Attendees must have attended a Competition Organiser course or have previous experience of organising and running competitions. Those with previous experience can email  to confirm if they can bypass the Competition Organiser course.


Topics covered in the course will include:

  • Fair Play 

  • Rules of Tennis 

  • Code of Conduct 

  • Refereeing duties 

  • Role of the Court Supervisor 

  • Handling Situations, such as on-court disputes 

  • Tournament Organisation 

  • Using TTP (Tennis Tournament Planner) software

  • Tournament Experience

Day one and day two of the course will be scheduled with a gap of 4-8 weeks (approximately), thereby enabling attendees to gain practical experience by shadowing (at least two) qualified referees at three different competitions to complete their referee workbook before attending day two.

Attendees must be able to attend both course dates listed below at the same venue. 


The course is pass/fail with the criteria for passing being:

  • Assessment by the Tutor during the course 

  • Completion of a referee workbook and three days shadowing between days one and two 

  • Passing an exam on day two

  • Being an LTA Licensed Official

After completing Day one attendees can apply online to join the LTA Officials Licence Scheme with an LTA DBS check.  

Passing the course will allow Referees to be eligible to referee at county level tournaments and court supervise at higher level tournaments.
