Today is the start of #VolunteersWeek, when we thank and honour all those volunteers who give so much time, passion and enthusiasm to help table tennis happen up and down the country.

Among the key roles carried out by volunteers are those of referees and umpires – and today we feature some of the 19 English officials who were selected to officiate at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games this summer.

In the video below, they speak about their umpiring journeys and what it means to them to be selected for a major event on home soil.
