One simple rule – only ask a question at quarter / half time breaks.

We really like our umpires and we take any necessary steps to look after them.  They do a great job to the best of their ability and we guarantee that moaning at them, giving them dirty looks, questioning their calls or making loud sarcastic comments to no-one in particular won’t work.  Again – we’ve seen it all before!  If you have any questions, you’re more than welcome to ask them with your captain at a scheduled break but please leave it at that.

If you think that your umpire has had an off day and it’s something that we (as competition organisers) need to be aware of then please do let us know – it might be an aspect of their game that we can help them to improve.
