As at September 2016

 

The Oceania Squash Federation is committed to improving the standard of refereeing and marking in the Oceania Region, in addition to promoting a greater knowledge of the rules of both Singles and Doubles Squash.

 

Programmes and updates are regularly provided by the OSF Referees and Rules Committee.

 

OSF member countries have access to material covering educational and training courses, and video rules presentations for both Singles and Doubles.

 

At OSF major events, rules examinations, practical assessments and formal accreditation of markers and referees for both Singles and Doubles are organised.
