Gregory Chan – Canadians newest blue badge member

Gregory Chan of Manitoba has reached the highest level of officiating as an umpire as recognized by the ITTF. The road to qualify as a BLUE BADGE  umpire is very stressful and takes a long time to achieve.   A candidate must attend an Advanced Umpire Seminar, pass an Advanced Rules Exam, receive 4 “meets expectations” from at least three different evaluators and finally pass the English interview.  After becoming an International umpire a few years ago, Gregory embarked on a pathway over a three year period that resulted with him joining the ranks of other outstanding umpires in the World.  Canada is privileged to have 6 ctive Blue Badge Umpires.  They include:  Greg Dzioba (MB), Darek Mikita (MB), Tony Shaw (BC), Norman Tang (ON), Denis Vigeant (QC) and now Gregory Chan.

Gregory is in an excellent position to be considered for the Pan American Games (2015) and the Olympics (2016).  

Congratulations Gregory Chan.
