Pictona is proud to announce that the Pictona Referee Training Academy will be starting referee training in the not-so-distant future!
When watching tournaments in person or on TV you may notice the referee standing on the side with his/her clipboard. They are not just keeping score, but they make sure all the rules are followed, making judgement calls, and being in the action!
The training to become a referee will make you an expert on pickleball rules, and also give you a certification that can be used at tournaments across the country. Those who have completed the referee training have said it is a very rewarding experience, and you can even get paid for refereeing.
Check out the video below of Pictona players Kathy Postlewait, Certified Referee, and Walter Hooker, Level 2 Referee, explain why it is “Cool” to become a pickleball referee!
If interested please fill out the information section below and we will keep you informed of upcoming referee training.
