- Appointments group: takes care of the appointments of all officials (referees, umpire managers, judges and tournament directors) for European tournaments
- Officials Education group: deals with the training and support of judges and tournament directors
- Umpires Education group: deals with the training of referees and umpires managers
With the eight other members, I am part of the Appointments Group which is responsible for appointing and supporting all the people involved in European tournaments, grass and hall. This is a very interesting role which allows us in particular a global view of the roles and responsibilities of the people involved in a tournament, the requirements, etc.” Sylvie Petitjean
