Inez Cooper, Chair of the EHF Education Committee was delighted at making this #equallyamazing announcement “It is very encouraging for the EHF to see that there are so many young umpires in Europe who are looking to learn, improve and further their umpiring careers. We hope all umpires are having a great experience with the U4E Programme.  For those who may be disappointed at missing out on selection for UDP this year, there will be another opportunity next year!  There is now no restriction on the number of years for which umpires can apply to U4E and be part of the EHF Umpiring Pathway.”
