To be a referee is not an easy job.

 The essence of a good official lies in the concept of fairness and consistency:

– to be fair to every participant,

– to be viewed as fair by the spectators.

This demands a huge element of trust – the referee must be trusted to allow the players to entertain:

–by being accurate in his/her judgement;

–by understanding why the rule is written;

–by being an efficient organizer;

–by allowing the competition to flow and by directing it to a conclusion;

–by being an educator – using the rules to penalise the unfair or admonish the impolite;

–by promoting the game – that is, by allowing the spectacular elements in the game to shineand the best players to do what they do best: entertain the public.

Finally we can say that a good referee will use the rules to make the competition a fulfilling experience for all concerned.
