About Umpiring and Scoring

The New Zealand Cricket Umpires' Association (NZCUA) was established in 1957. In 2007, the NZCUA Annual General Meeting voted to change its name to the New Zealand Cricket Umpires' and Scorers' Association (NZCUSA) in order to reflect the professionalisation of scoring at the level of national tournament, domestic and international cricket and the growing integration of scorers into regional Umpires' Associations throughout New Zealand.


The NZCUSA has its own President, Chairman, Secretary and Board, with each member responsible for individual portfolios covering Assessment & Accreditation, Retention, Recruitment, and Training. These members are nominated by the regional Associations and elected, by rotation, to a four-year term at the NZCUSA Annual General Meeting held in August. In addition, New Zealand Cricket's Match Officials Manager is an ex-officio member of the Board. For the complete contact details of the current NZCUSA Board, please click on the 'NZCUSA Board' icon on the 'In This Section' list.
