Deadline: 28th February 2023 (Tuesday) @ 4.00 pm
The ITTF Umpires and Referees Committee (URC) cordially invite National Associations to nominate Blue Badge (BB) and Gold Badge (GB) International Umpires for this prestigious event, which will take place in Paris, France:
Paris 2024 Olympic Games
Date event: 27th July – 10th August 2024
2. Paris 2024 Paralympic Games
Date event: 29th August – 7th September 2024
It is our pleasure to invite two (2) IUs who have achieved Blue Badge or Gold Badge status, at least one of whom must be female – i.e. only one male umpire may be nominated. The primary selection criteria will be excellence so please only nominate umpires who are considered to be your best.
Experience at recent Para TT events is a pre-requisite and only umpires who have this will be considered (Paralympic Games).
Since this is an open invitation, unfortunately many umpires nominated will not be selected. The selection will be based on past performance (number of Meets with a minimum of 80% ratio of Meets over the past 3 years, Assessment results), continental quotas and gender equity. Subject to other factors being equal, preference will be given to umpires who did not participate in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic or Paralympic Games. The OPC will confirm the selection in May 2023 and an announcement will be made on the ITTF website.
Please complete the nomination form by no later than Tuesday, 28th February 2023 @ 4.00 pm and submit to TTAM via email at (email@example.com), copy to State TTA (State endorsement required), Mr. Lee Su Hau (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ms. Corrine Wong (email@example.com).
Late submissions will not be considered.
Thank you for your kind cooperation.
