SAWF extending their UWW Referee Corps

2019 has been a great year for the SAWF Referees’ council. Building on the United World Wrestling level 1 course held in December 2018 as part of the UWW Mega Week of Wrestling the council has managed to not only upgrade two of their international refereeing corps but also added two new referees to the group of UWW referees representing the SAWF at international events.

Our chairperson, Willem Gilliomee successfully graded to category I during the 2019 wrestling year and Maretha Piccioli made the grade for UWW category II.

Joining the international corps is Andre Visagie and Albert van der Walt who both officiated at the 2019 Veteren Wold Champs to successfully complete the requirements for UWW category III referees.
