    Maybe it's the same guy? 😁

    I am amazed, I can't find anything in the ITTF handbook about poor umpire decision making and the SOP to handle such issue.

    I would imagine under common sense that you can call the referee and complain.....

    Isn't nice to have a couple of lovely and kind young ladies helping him with this difficult job. 🤣

    I think he got into trouble with the electronic system, got out of sinc with the cards AND with what happened on the table and from there onward it was all down shit-street. 🤣

    I don't think there is anything in the rulebook but you could probably complain at the tournament organization. Not sure if they have to do something but if it is really bad like an umpire who can't count correctly they might be willing to change something.

    At lower levels of course it is not always easy to find qualified umpires who are willing to do it as it is very time consuming to be an umpire and at lower levels there is little if any payment.

    But still tournaments should make sure to put someone there who can stay awake and counts correctly. Compared to other sports being a tt ump is pretty easy as there are no fouls and no real line calls like in tennis either, either the ball hits the table or not.

    Of course at higher levels there are illegal serves but who calls them anyways?

    Call for a referee while the umpire is asleep?

    I told Su, that she and Charlotte should just play on and count the scores themselves.
    Fill in the scorecard, bring it to the control table and let the umpire sleep and take a proper nap

    😂 I thought International umpires were monitored? I've seen some dodgy umpiring in my local leagues but this is something different.
