• Mobility: move from table to table, watching out for tight situations. 
  • Know which tables are in the allocated zone and cover all the allocated tables. 
  • If a walkabout Referee witnesses an incorrect decision by a table Referee, the call should be overruled. 
  • A walkabout Referee should know the result sheet system in use, and be able to explain to competitors as required. 
  • Ensure the time between frames is kept to a minimum to keep the competition flowing. This is particularly important during team matches (where re-racking of balls between frames, and getting the next players to table are points that may need consideration). 
  • Keep Senior Referee (or Organiser) informed at all times of unusual events that may develop. For example, a match in your allocated region may be progressing slowly and an adjacent table is spare. 
  • Be aware of the required player dress code (if in doubt alert the Senior Referee, who will take any action necessary, normally reporting it to the Tournament Director). 
  • If the Senior Referee is asked for, find the Senior Referee, advise the Senior Referee of the situation and your decision away from table, before returning to table.
