Referee Training

ABQ Pickleball Club Referee Committee

Our goal is to provide four referee training sessions per year. These are open events, for anyone who wishes to learn or update their refereeing skills. Presenters will take you through basic preparation, how to complete the score sheet and the official USAPA Pickleball Rule Book, followed by the opportunity for mentored practice with real players.

New training session coming up! November 3 from 9:00 – 11:00 AM. Plan now to attend!

Location: Manzano Mesa Multigenerational Center, 501 Elizabeth St SE

Paradise Hills Referee and Rules Training

There will be a regular pickleball referee and rules training session at Paradise Hills Community Center, 5901 Paradise Blvd NW, Albuquerque, NM 87114 every Friday from 9:00 am – 10:15 am. Regular pickleball will follow (as always) from 10:15 am to 12:15 pm.

This will be open to all, but is hoped to be very useful for players at every skill ranking who wish to play in local and USAPA tournaments, as well as those who want to try their hand at refereeing in a “controlled” environment.
